TAYLOR: 70% dark with peanuts and dried cherries

A delicious combination of rich, dark chocolate, peanuts and dried cherries. We created this bar to raise money for the Monhegan Associates. Photograph by Warner Taylor. Tasting notes: Floral approach, herbal. Earthy, green apple, lime. Strong cocoa finish Cacao beans for this chocolate are collected in the north central part of Honduras near Pico Bonito National Park named for the mountain (beautiful peak) that bears its name. This area is very popular for birdwatching, rafting, kayaking and hiking, and is a part of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor. Cacao beans are purchased from the Honduras Foundation for Agricultural Research (FHIA), a nonprofit dedicated to helping improve the lives of farmers. A portion of the profits from the sales of this bar benefits the Monhegan Associates. Monhegan Associates Inc. is a private non-profit land trust dedicated to the preservation of over 350 acres of undeveloped land on Monhegan Island, Maine.
