Welcome to Day #8 of 100% Cacao Theme Week, and Day #3 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.
Today's CacaoSuyo 100% Cacao Rupa Rupa Dark Chocolate (bar) was produced by Theobroma Inversiones (Lima, Peru).
The company makes chocolate with cacao from the Peruvian Amazon. Cacaosuyo's tagline "The best kept secret of the Incas" underscored the long history of cacao in Peru and South America.
Rupa Rupa (aka Tingo Maria) cacao refers to a growing region in central Peru (east of the Andes).
This single ingredient 100% cacao bar was hearty, yeasty (fresh baked bread) and earthy, with balanced bitterness (like a deep, rich ale with a citrus note).
Ingredients: Cocoa paste (Theobroma cacao)
