Marou - Farm of Mrs. Tam Dák Nông Province 75% Cacao
This is the best chocolate I’ve tasted from Marou. I understand this is a 1 of 200 limited edition bar but even the striped down packaging tantalized me. It’s pure function with flavor and packaging. This is efficiency of wrapping, stickering and flavor. It developed as if to say, « I am starting , now I’ve peaked, now I will linger pleasantly « . No surprises from deliberate Marou, except that I prefer this origin the most.
With every bite of the bar I say Hello and goodbye. I say aloha to this bar and it was love at first site. It was nicely wrapped and made for @cacaoreview , thoughtfully (and still 30% off I think)
This bar is perfect because of what it’s not. It’s anything but consistent. I’ve never wanted nor needed a go-to bar of specific origin but this would have been had been a consistently utilized origin.
I am not sure I will like missing it. I won’t cry but won’t be ecstatic either. This bar satisfies my chocolate pursuit but I will never have it again. Presumably. Fool’s gold.
Emotionally unattached to this bliss inducing love affair, I give this bar 6 🏖🏖🏖🏖🏖🏖 out of 8 #chocolate_islands because I would be co-Dependent with this bar on regular basis.
