Made by Marou, Hailed by the New York Time's Style Guide as "The Best Chocolate You've Never tasted"
This chocolate is a fantasy! Many speak of the glorious pairing of dark chocolate and oranges, but take this very intense, smokey and naturally fruity single origin from the Tien Giang province in Vietnam and pair it with the Kumquats that grow in the lush orchards in that same region and you have a wonderful thing.
Tien Giang is a full bodied chocolate with notes of smokey spices and honey. The deep, fruity notes come entirely from the Vietnamese Trinitario cocoa beans, made entirely from pod to bar by Marou's expatriate chefs turned chocolate makers...bringing french flaire to a distinct vietnamese flavor in chocolate that most have never tried before, a very smoothly textured, beautifully stamped wafer of a mini bar (24g), or available as a larger bar (80g).
INGREDIENTS, are simply: cacao nibs, sugar, coconut powder, cacao butter
Marou spent its early years scouring the Vietnamese countryside for great cacao. In trial and error, many wonderful characters and got lost in extraordinary places. The adventure came to include budding engineers, old soldiers and die-hard pastry chefs. A curious taste for chocolate drew them all into Marou’s tent.
Marou’s chocolate has a particular complexity and variability, because unlike most chocolate makers, they can create theirs from beans they select at the source. This means they have control of everything, from farm to bar.
