Chocolate of the Day
Allergen-related information: "May contain traces of milk and nuts"
*Bagua is a province in the Peruvian Amazon/Amazonas region. The word "Bagua" comes from the native Quechua language and the translation (into English that I found online) was close to "unity and hospitality." The Bagua cacao used to make this bar from this has been described as having Criollo-like qualities. I agree with this description. The gentle cream, fruit and other notes in this Qantu Bagua bar were very much what I would associate with the best of Criollo cacao varieties (and chocolates).
