Tastes like the holidays... Green tangerines from South East Asia have a beautiful floral citrus aroma - like a cross between a kumquat and a clementine. This house blend made up of 3 distinct cacao origins balances the two together to make a bar that is delightfully refreshing and juicy in flavor.

From SOMA Chocolatemaker:
Our journey first started in 2003 when the first bag of cacao beans arrived at SOMA. Fast forward 10 years and we are still totally psyched about making chocolate. It's called getting bit by the cacao bug and we got it good.
Not all cacao beans are created equal so the first step is to search out the special ones. Presently beans are sourced from plantations and farms in Central America, the Caribbean, Madagascar and the South Pacific.
The beans are hand sorted, roasted, refined and conched in our small factory using a combination of people power, shiny new machines and some beautiful vintage machines that have been lovingly restored. Nothing beats the smells of chocolate in all its different stages and the soothing beats of the machines when everything is up and running.
Every cacao bean has a unique personality (beans from different regions and growing seasons vary). At each step in the process, our goal is to coax out all the beautiful and interesting notes each type of cacao has to offer. This involves a whole lot of tasting which keeps us pleasantly wired and focused.
We pick, pack and ship orders around the clock. Most orders will be processed within 1-2 business days of receipt. Many orders are shipping sooner than that! Please note orders are not processed or shipped on weekends or holidays.
We are happy to ship every package with recyclable or compostable materials. We also include a complimentary sweet bite in each order :-)
The two bars were packaged nicely and arrived in excellent condition. I had purchased one bar during my visit to your shop in Vancouver and these two were just as good!
I’ve never had green tangerine, and it produced a series of surprises in my mouth. You can really smell the citrus layered over the chocolate, which is another delight.
