This 73% Chapon Pérou Gran Nativo Dark Chocolate Mini Bar has the flavor notes of a deep, dark milk chocolate at the outset. As it melts, top notes of mango and citrus refresh the palate, and as the layered experience progresses you are rewarded with a rich chocolatey finish.
This bar was awarded "Best Dark Chocolate Bar" by The Club des Croqueurs de Chocolat (which literally translates to "The Chocolate Crunchers' Club) at The Salon du Chocolat.
The beautiful Chapon Pérou Gran Nativo 73% Dark Chocolate Mini Bar is made by multi-awarded pâtissier-chocolatier Patrice Chapon, who once supplied ice creams and sorbets to Buckingham Palace. It's no surprise that he was invited to make the Queen's frozen desserts. Patrice's ice cream is voluptuous and silky, infused with ambrosial vanilla and opulent cinnamon.
While in England, he became fascinated with the concept of making his own bean-to-bar chocolate courtesy of the alluring array of chocolates at Harrod's. Patrice now has five chocolate boutiques in France, three of which are in Paris, as well as his own chocolate mousse truck that traverses the streets of the City of Lights.
Chapon's packaging is replete with fanciful whimsy but the chocolate nestled inside is serious (and seriously delicious)! Several times each year, Patrice's journeys take him all over the globe, from the lush forests of Brazil to the Millot or Sambirano plantations in Madagascar. He feels compelled to meet the inspiring cacao farmers, learn about the beans, and source the finest vanilla, pink berry peppers and other spices for his indulgent creations.

I'm drawn to Chapon because the company shares the same ultimate goal as Barometer Chocolate - pure pleasure!
