Ucayali River, Peru 70%
A pure 70% using beans from the Ucayali River in Peru. This bar has flavors unlike any other we have tasted. It's tangy and nutty and has such a nice floral tone to it. Our customers agree this is a unique bar with an amazing melt and complexity of flavor!

The cacao pods that grow in this region are purple!
Smooth, rich and chocolatey. You can't go wrong with this choice.
I would have gotten 10% off my order if I hadn’t had eaten the entire bar before reviewing! Stonegrindz’s chocolate is unrivaled from flavor, to consistency, to the soul that is put into chocolate itself. I have purchased their chocolate for years and will continue to for many more winters to come. If you want to enjoy chocolate to a higher level then the basic sweetness that a Herseys bar provides, Stonegrindz will provide, and excess in all aspects that go into a chocolate bar. The 70% Peru bar is my personal favorite, and I would highly recommend the bar, as well as any bar to anyone who enjoys the culture and flavor that true cocoa provides
Of all of the coco producing regions, this one from Peru has the best taste. For me it is the gold standard against which all others are compared.
Loved the flavors this brought out. They came in waves and was a delight to experience .
Great chocolate! Tasting notes are spot on in that you can taste mocha, cherry, and slight caramel. Go to bar on the weekend as a treat.
