This chocolate bar is crafted using cacao beans from the Dong Nai region in Vietnam.
Flavor Notes: Tangerine oil, saffron.
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.
I had never before had the opportunity to taste one of the chocolate bars from Marou. This particular bar was a delight. I am glad to have had the chance to try it. I recommend it. I continue to appreciate the fast and secure shipment from the Meadow.
