Deep & Fruity
A dark chocolate sweetened with measure, just enough to release the deep cocoa flavour, and clear notes of red fruits and citrus. An intense, elegant and bright chocolate with a long, rich and subtle acidic finish.
The image on the bar depicts a Mahafaly man. The Mahafaly people, whose name means “those who make happy”, were feared warriors inhabiting the great limestone plateau that lines the south west. This arid region is known for its lack of rain and sparse, spiny vegetation. The Mahafaly tend to live in small groups, scattered around the region. Like most of Madagascar’s many ethnic groups, the dead are honoured with a burial ritual that is unique to the island, involving aloalo, or carved wooden posts representing scenes from daily life or animals. These posts are used to decorate the tombs of the dead. The Mahalafy are highly skilled craftsmen, whose work is becoming increasingly well known across the world. They are particularly esteemed for their wooden sculptures, jewelry and tattoos.
