Terrafunga Chocolate Bar
The Terrafunga gourmet chocolate bar features the unique combination of sweet and smoky caramelized maitake mushrooms with rich, velvety Venezuelan dark chocolate and toasted hazelnuts.
The chocolate eating experience begins with the 61% dark, single origin chocolate followed by the sweet surprise of the candied maitake and ending with the subtle crunch of the hazelnuts. The way the flavors play with each other is exquisite and complex making the bars a decadent treat.
Terrafunga had the good fortune of collaborating with the wonderful owners of Tavernier Chocolates, artisanal chocolatiers in Brattleboro, VT who specialize in exceptional, unique and distinctive chocolate confections. Their philosophy regarding work ethics, sourcing, sustainability and innovative farming practices mirrors that of Terrafunga making our partnership on these chocolate bars that much more meaningful.
Each bar contains single origin chocolate from Venezuela that are produced following fair trade precepts, organically grown maitake mushrooms, organic sugar, vanilla and hazelnuts. The chocolates are hand made and packaged in Vermont.
Did you know….Chocolate has been consumed for over 3000 years, originating in what is now central and northern South America. Though the Aztecs used cacao to make a beverage they called Nahuati (loosely translated as “bitter water”) as far back as 1100 BC, it was not until the mid 19th century that the modern chocolate bar was first created in England. Today, Europeans consume more chocolate than any other region in the world, with the Swiss leading the pack by eating just under 20 lbs per person annually!
