Our raw cacao bars are dense in nutrients and refined sugar free. The flavours are based around travel experiences we have had or would like to have. Hopefully eating our cacao bars and reading the stories behind each flavour will take you on a journey of your own. Each bar has their own story… this is ‘Aztec’
aztec – The origins of cacao start in Central and South America. The Aztecs believed the seeds to be a gift from Quetzalcoatl, the god of wisdom. The seeds had such value that they were also used as form of currency.
In those days, cacao was prepared as a drink, often enjoyed by the royal elite. It was a hot, bitter and frothy drink and often flavoured with chilli, allspice, vanilla and honey.
These are the flavours we’ve chosen for our Aztec cacao bar. The honey we use is sourced from The Travelling Bee Company which aims to support local producers and honey bee conservation.
Although we haven’t yet visited Mexico or South America (it’s on our bucket list), we wanted to create something that would celebrate the origins of chocolate, as well as capture the tastes of those original drinks.
