Amano Chocolate

I am quickly learning that there are a lot of different kinds of chocolate out there! Amano Artisan Chocolate is a sophisticated chocolate with unique flavours and combinations. I received a 12 piece box of chocolates in this handsome chocolate brown box with gold trim, and two Amano chocolate bars: a limited edition Hand Crafted Dark Chcolate cuyagua bar, and a Reserve Dark Chocolate bar from the Signature Collection Chuao.

The Cuyagua bar is made from premium beans from the Cuyagua Valley in Venezuela. The beans are gently roasted and slowly stone ground, creating an exceptional chocolate. The Chuao bar is made from the world’s most coveted cocoa, criollo cocoa grown in Venezuela. It is hand roasted and stone ground, and a delicious chocolate that is not too bitter or sweet. I liked the slightly bitter and not too sweet taste of these bars. Made with cocoa beans, pure cane sugar, cocoa butter and whole vanilla beans, they are all natural and the perfect treat.

I have to admit, some of these flavours were a little too sophisticated for my taste. The Cardomon and Pepper was definitely not my thing, and I could take or leave the Yemeni Sidr Honey and Dos Rios Palet D’or. I really enjoyed the Cherry Cordial. In face, I think it is the best cherry chocolate I have ever had, and I would buy a whole box of just the Cherry Cordial! I also really liked the two white chocolate pieces (the rasberry ganache and the Yuzu). They were creamy and delicious. The Tangerine Ganache  is a nice milk chocolate that I savoured, and the Cinnamon Ganache with the pecan was unique and delicous. It had just the right amount of cinnamon to make it intriguing.

I think these chocolates would make a wonderful Valentine’s gift for the special man in your life!
