This 2 oz craft chocolate bar is made from cacao beans sourced from the state of Tabasco in Mexico. This break-apart Tabasco chocolate bar is 72% cacao. And its taste is as unusual as its namesake — Tabasco. Now we usually associate Tabasco with the sauce that bears its name, but it is also the main site of Mexico’s cacao growing industry. This chocolate is not infused with Tabasco sauce, however: its spiciness is completely natural.
As the name suggests, this Mexican craft chocolate bar has a very spicy taste to it combined with a rich, dark chocolate flavor.
Cacao Bean Origin: Tabasco, Mexico
Tabasco is a state located along the gulf coast of Mexico. In addition, it was home to an ancient tribe of Mesoamericans who truly enjoyed chocolate. Cacao farms in this region are responsible for growing and harvesting the cacao beans used to make Tabasco chocolate.
Chocolate was first consumed in Mexico about 3,000 years ago by an ancient tribe known as the Olmecs who lived in what we now know as Vera Cruz and Tabasco.
