Zotter chocolate from cocoa from Belize. 82% – named after the ‘Toledo’ area in Belize where the cocoa comes from.
Zotter says about this bar:
“Enjoy a piece of Mayan culture. The Mayan, great ancestors of the chocolate culture, lived in the Yucatán region in the south and southeast of Mexico but also in parts of Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. They still live in Belize today and growing cocoa, guarding the knowledge they have been given and enjoying their cocoa as drinking chocolate Josef Zotter and his family spent two weeks at the Maya cocoa farmers living in the middle of the jungle far from the chaos of Belize City and making a documentary about the trip. A dark chocolate with 82% cocoa from the Toledo Cacao Growers: perfect, authentic and simply breathtaking. “
An 82% pure single origin chocolate bar from the ‘Labooko’ series by Zotter. A whole range of chocolate bars from white and milk to very pure.
As always with Zotter certified organic and fair trade.
As far as we are concerned, it makes sense with chocolates made from 100% cocoa, but Zotter also notes: this chocolate is vegan.
82% cocoa from Belize, cane sugar, cocoa butter, salt. Organic and fair trade. Conching time: 21 hours.
Allergy note: may contain traces of all types of nuts, peanuts, milk, sesame and soy.
