This is a 340g bag of milk chocolate couverture.
This is a rich and fudgy couverture with a flavour that comes alive with a burst of vanilla, red fruit and citrus notes. Although that fruity edge is typical of cocoa from the island of Madagascar, it’s unusual to find it in a milk chocolate. This is perfect for a variety of uses in the kitchen.
This chocolate doesn’t just taste good, it does good. Madagascan chocolate maker Menakao proudly crafts its chocolate on the island, using only local ingredients. Unfortunately, this is rare even for craft chocolate – it’s estimated that less than 5% of the world’s chocolate is produced in the same country the cocoa is grown. By making the chocolate in Madagascar in addition to growing the cacao on the island, Menakao generate about 4-5 times the benefit of Fair Trade for the local Madagascan economy.
