Amano Chocolate Chuao Review

Amano Chocolate had a contest a few months back to guess the origin of their newest chocolate bar.  I didn’t win the contest, but was ecstatic when I heard that Amano had gained the rights to the Chuao cacao beans.  If anyone could do right by these beans, it would be award-winning Amano Chocolate.

I have had the privilege of working with Amano Chocolate for many years.  They started offering chocolate to the public the same year I began Drexelius Chocolates as a business.  Their chocolate was among one of my first offerings and has always remained a favorite.

The Chuao bar is not glossy, but a flat deep brown color like worn leather.  It has a delicate fruit aroma with a hint of smoke.  The chocolate has a soft snap and a nice smooth, creamy melt on the tongue.  I tasted no bitterness and the flavors are not overpowering.  There are notes of brown sugar and I taste sweet plum, which lends a bit of dryness at the finish.

Wrap your taste buds around this delightful bar today.  Order some from Drexelius Chocolates.  Your taste buds will thank you.

Reminder…Orders over $25 ship free in the contiguous US 🙂
