Chocolove Introduces Chocolatour - A Limited Production, Single Origin Chocolate Bar

Share Article

Chocolatour is a new line of single origin, vintage chocolate bars from Chocolove. Each Chocolatour flavor is named after the country the chocolate comes from and declares the year the cocoa beans were harvested. Current flavors are Sao Tome dark chocolate with 70% cocoa content, Grenada dark chocolate with 60% cocoa content and Java milk chocolate with 33% cocoa content. The 2004 production was limited to 5,000 bars of each flavor.

Chocolatour is a new line of single origin, vintage chocolate bars from Chocolove, a premium chocolate manufacturer. Chocolatour offers a world tour of chocolate.

Eating a Chocolatour is an experience like tasting a bottle of fine wine. You can choose a specific terroir and vintage and if you taste carefully, you'll be able to taste something of the country and the weather.

Because Chocolatour is made from single origin cocoa beans and weather affects the quality of the cocoa bean from year to year, Chocolatour will be made exclusively from origins and vintages that have high quality cocoa beans. Consequently, Chocolatour is made in limited productions and some origins may be available only once in a few years.

2004's production was limited to 5,000 bars of each origin. Currently, Chocolatour is available in: Sao Tome dark chocolate with 70% cocoa content, Grenada dark chocolate with 60% cocoa content and Java milk chocolate with 33% cocoa content.

"The 2004 production offers the consumer a rare chance to taste an aged and tempered chocolate. Cocoa beans for the 2004 Chocolatour bars were harvested and made into chocolate in 1999," said Timothy Moley, owner. "The chocolate was aged to perfection in our temperature controlled facility, then melted, tempered and packed into bars in December 2004. The aging softened any bitter flavors and the recent tempering has made each bar shine like a new chocolate."

"Single origin chocolate bars are a growing trend among chocolatiers, and the prices for such bars tend to be pretty high," Moley says. "But at Chocolove, I’m committed to making the best chocolate bars and keeping the prices affordable for the consumer. The Chocolatour should be available to consumers at retail for under $3.50 a bar."

The exotic Chocolatour wrapper looks like a map on the front and a postcard on the back. Each origin has a travelogue inside. The bars are limited production and each one is uniquely numbered.

Due to the limited production of Chocolatour, it will only be available at select specialty shops and gourmet grocers or direct from Chocolove.
