All single origin dark bars are made with just two ingredients - 70% organic cacao and 30% organic sugar. There is also a range of 60% single origin dark-milk bars and a 60% vegan Coconut Milk chocolate. Fredrik does an amazing job of highlighting the unique flavours of each origin, and creating a perfectly smooth chocolate with a lovely slow melt.
