A unique combination of Pump Street's two signature (and favourite) products; dark chocolate and sourdough. Their own bakery sourdough crumbs and a touch of sea salt add crunch and a smooth, malty flavour to the Ecuadorian chocolate.
This is a unique combination and to anyone's knowledge, when Pump Street launched this bar, it was the first time a chocolate bar had been made with sourdough.
Handmade from flour and bean to bar in Suffolk, UK.
