Only Child Best Fronds Forever Milk Chocolate with Peanuts, Coconut, Fennel and Cayenne
A milk chocolate bar featuring salted peanuts, aromatic fennel, coconut slices, and a touch of cayenne. It’s a tropical breeze and the warming of sunshine in a bar. It’s also a bit like a great friendship - it’s salty, sweet, crunchy, and spicy and it’s somehow just right - you can’t imagine it being any other way once you’ve gotten a taste.
Yana, an only child, grew up in Moscow. As a tiny tot, she enjoyed tiny squares of bitter chocolate that sweetened the cold of Russian winters. Upon moving to Chicago in the summer of 1997, she discovered the joys of chocolate milk and peanut M&M’s, thus cementing her love for both the sophisticated flavor of dark chocolate and the exuberant cheerfulness of candy. While majoring in Literature at the University of Illinois C-U, Yana spent most mornings moonlighting as a cupcake decorator. After graduating, she abandoned Chaucer for chocolate and moved to Portland, OR to attend culinary school. During long days as pastry chef for Crema Bakery in SE Portland, she dreamt of a chocolate company. The offspring of Yana’s love for puns and unexpected flavors, Only Child Chocolate Co. seizes your hand and takes you on a joyful adventure in taste.
