Candied New Zealand-grown Yuzu combines with a sweet and incredibly smooth 67% organic dark chocolate, made with the finest Piura Blanco Peruvian cacao. Natural flavour notes of red berries, dried apricot and honey combine perfectly with the added pieces of tangy yuzu.
"The passionate team at NZYuzu supply us annually with beautiful fresh Yuzu grown at their Levin orchard. After a long production process, we add small cubes of conflt Yuzu to our luscious 70% Piura White chocolate, resulting in an unmatched citrus flavour explosion."
Handcrafted from bean to bar in the Wairarapa, New Zealand.
Piura is a type of Criollo, but with white cocoa beans.
"White cacaos like the Piura Blanco only make up around 0.1 percent of the world's harvest. They are therefore very rare and immensely sought after by cacao producers and chocolate experts. Most noticeably, their ivory colored beans taste less bitter."
"But how did the Blanco come to be? There is no simple answer. Cacao genetic experts believe that the Piura Blanco is an “albino” mutation of an older native cacao of which only the “albino” offspring survived in the forgotten corner of the dry Piura Valley."
