It has been written that Sicily is “the country of oranges, whose fragrance fills the air in springtime.” So, when we set out to capture the legendary fruit in a chocolate bar, we knew we had to go back to the real thing, i.e. to the Sicilian orange groves carefully grown in accordance to the principles of organic agriculture. We collected large quantities of oranges and we peeled them by hand, one by one, fruit by fruit, very superficially. The result was a mountain of pretty peel spirals, that were then air dried and ground to powder. This powder maintains the citrus fragrance and is added by hand to the cocoa mass and cane sugar. Made at low temperatures, the end result is a bar that fully preserves the aromas and nutritional properties of its precious ingredients.
Bite into it and you will be spellbound. The real zest from organic Sicilian oranges gives this chocolate an irresistibly inebriating aroma and enveloping flavour. If you have visited Sicily, it will immediately bring you back. If you haven’t, you will feel the urge to go. In both cases, you will be taken on an unforgettable chocolate journey, starting off with luscious and smooth cacao flavours and a finish of delicate notes of orange and vanilla.
