So we have been selling some very special Madagascan chocolate bars in Cocoa and I just wanted to say a little something about why they are so special. Madecasse make their chocolate bar from Bean-to -Bar all in Madagscar (just like the Grenada bar we sell too). This is when chocolate can make a really positive effect ecomically, ethically & ecologically (try saying that with a bar in your mouth!)
This diagram explains it very well, basically Chocolate is substantially worth more than Cocoa. By selling Chocolate you can create more money, jobs and sustainability in African countries to generate a future.
It also supports the environment around it, as well as less flights around the world there is just one.
Which helps protect this:
And we can't talk about Madagascar without including these guys, so cute!
So back to Cocoa....So far we sell three of their bars. This is a 44% milk chocolate with a really malty taste.
A fruity 70% dark chocolate.
And a deliciously dark 80%.
This is where they live in the Shop. Why not pop in a try one for yourself.
If you are interested and would like to find out more check out their website here, there are some great pictures. Now we just need to get friendly with them so we can sneek out of Cocoa for a Madagscan chocolate trip!
