Made in London, using Colombian cacao, Lucocoa describe this bar simply as ‘An aristocrat’.
While we can’t vouch for the bars ancestry, we found this to be a pleasantly smooth an rich bar. A mellow bar with gently warming notes that develop into a nutty flavour, with hints of hazelnuts and cashew.
Rather than using refined sugar, Lucocoa sweeten all the their bars with just coconut sugar and Lucuma powder (hence the name). Lucuma is a subtropical fruit, native to the Andean valleys of Peru, Ecuador and Chile. The dry yellow flesh has a unique sweet taste that is often compared to sweet potato or maple. When dried, this so-called superfood can be used as a natural sweetener, adding an unusual flavour dimension to Lucocoa’s bars.
