The AMANO Blog One of the things I have always found most wonderful about chocolate is how unlike it is from so many other foods: it reaches in and touches a person’s soul. Few foods do that, and none that I’m aware of do so so completely. Because of this, I have had some incredible experiences. People of all walks of life tell me what a profound impact our chocolate has had on them and how much they love that experience. (or love the chocolate?) The same goes for some well-known chefs whom I have admired from afar for years.
Chili and chocolate are almost the perfect combination. The two have been paired together since the time of the Aztecs when they were used to create a wonderful drink. Mango’s fruity creaminess provides the perfect counterpoint to the chili’s warmth, and the two have become a favorite snack worldwide.
I have taken the mango-chili combination and crafted them together in this bar, which we make with cocoa we source directly from farmers in the Guayas River Basin in Ecuador. The result? A Chocolate that is truly remarkable and one which you will treasure.
