This chocolate bar is crafted using cacao beans from the Ba Ria region in Vietnam.
Flavor Notes: Perfectly balanced cacao flavor, with subtle apricot.
Cacao growing in Vietnam is being attempted without success for about 100 years before Marou decided to start their operation in Saigon. Samuel Maruta and Vincent Mourou met in Vietnam during Vietnamese language classes and jungle treks, and had no chocolate making background when they started the company. The color of the wrappers actually reflects the color of the cacao pods, which are grown in six very small region around Saigon, Vietnam.
