Castronovo created this 72% dark chocolate using cacao from the Lost City in Honduras.
From Castronovo: "This chocolate bar is a tribute to the Lost City of a vanished ancient civilization, discovered within Honduras' virgin tropical rainforest. The indigenous people living nearby in the Gracias a Dios region protect the forest and make a sustainable living as harvesters of wild cacao. The cacao is processed in their village and put on hollowed-out tree log canoes, called pipantes, for a two-day voyage upstream to the nearest road. We are the first American craft chocolate maker to make a single-origin chocolate from these remote beans. The chocolate bar has exceptional nutty flavor notes of roasted almonds. It's our homage to timelessness of this place."
