The Friis Holm Indio Rojo Dark Chocolate Bar has been crafted using a rare cacao that is a genetic blend of varietals from Honduras and Guatemala combined with Nicaraguan beans. Experts say it just might be as close as we modern folk can get to tasting the cacao that was enjoyed by the ancient Mayans. All of Mikkel Friis Holm's bars are a luscious treat and the Indio Rojo is no exception. One reviewer sings the praises of its texture, calling it "a heightened experience...super fleshy." While Mikkel's Chuno Dark Chocolate Bar is deep and robust and his Nicaliso Dark Chocolate Bar has a bit of fruitiness in the middle notes, this Indio Rojo reveals floral notes as it melts beautifully on the palate. Hints of lilac and rose blossom into a honeyed finish.
