This amaranth chocolate from Madre is clearly targeted at chocolate-lovers who are aware and conscious of health foods. The tasting notes state that amaranth contains all eight essential amino acids.
In terms of aroma it offered an elevated rich-crispies sensation combined with sesame seeds. The chocolate itself has a very creamy, rich flavour which contrasted with the crunchy texture.
This chocolate is another from the long line of very interesting bars from Madre.
