With it being based in Matagalpa, I had given up on trying their organic chocolate until I found the time to take a trip over there.
However, it turned up today, here in Granada at Mavericks - a book shop and cafe. At 40 Cs, a little over $2, I bought a bar - then struggled for 10 minutes with the robust wrapper. Embarrassingly, scissors were eventually produced.
The pic of the bar above isn't great. To be honest I would have taken another shot but the camera batteries went and, well, I'm afraid I couldn't wait.
So what was it like? Well first off you should remember that I am English. I like the kind of stuff that Belgians and Swiss would sneer at. It probably tells you all you need to know that I personally think it would benefit from added fruit and nut.
But I've a hunch that a genuine chocolate connoisseur might appreciate it more. It was the weight of a small house brick but at the same time it was a little cakey - almost like eating a brownie. Anyway. if you want to try it for yourself, according to their website they can ship it to you.
I read on the wrapper this was 50% "cacao organico". I can't work out whether that's not enough or if it's more than my unsophisticated taste buds can handle.
