52% Milk chocolate ‘Awajun’ from Chocolatemakers. A dark milk chocolate with a fairly high cocoa percentage. This is great for both lovers of milk and dark chocolate.
Your chocolate vendors are really interested in lovers of ‘pure’, but this is definitely a bar that we appreciate, in its kind. Our regular subject for milk chocolate (paul’s mother) was also very enthusiastic about it. In other words: highly recommended.
The cocoa for this bar is grown by the Awajún (pronounced Awajoen) Indians in North-East Peru. So in the Amazon rainforest.
Chocolate makers is busy setting up a chocolate factory on site with the local population; for the time being the cocoa is coming to the Netherlands to make nice bars in the chocolate factory in Amsterdam-Noord. That started with the characteristic 80% chocolate, and now this organic milk chocolate.
Contains 52% cocoa beans, 14% milk powder and 24% sugar. From organic cultivation. The bar is packaged in greaseproof paper printed with bio-ink. This is a nice environmentally friendly way of packaging – the shelf life is therefore somewhat shorter than with other makers as the packaging is not airtight.
Allergy note from the creators:
