About The Product
One of the world's most unique chocolates, Choclatique's Madagascar Origin is made from the rare Criollo cacao beans that are carefully handcrafted into this delicious tasting, exotic chocolate. It has just enough sugar to bring out the natural richness and fruity flavor of the Madagascar cocoa bean. With flavor notes of tart citrus and the fresh essence of raspberry, these beans from Madagascar create some of the world's most flavorful chocolate with one-of-a-kind, up-front, deep, rich chocolate flavor. It is light, smooth, mild, and easy to eat. Around the turn of the century, cacao trees were brought from Venezuela to the northern coast of Madagascar. Most chocolate from Madagascar is made from beans that descend from those original trees. Ambanja, in the fertile northwestern region of Madagascar, is the agricultural powerhouse of the country producing not just cocoa (which accounts for 80 per cent of employment here) but also mahogany, vanilla, pepper, cinnamon, cashew nuts, coffee, chilli and cloves. As well as 'cash crops' sold to others, the lush forest provides subsistence foods such as breadfruit, banana, mango, cassava, sweet potato and jackfruit.
