Almendra Blanca means “white almond.” The white color of this bean gives the finished bar a lighter look despite its high cacao content.
Farmer Vicente Cacep grows these beans on his family farm in Tabasco, Mexico. For more information about his farm, the unique white cacao beans from which this bar are made, and pictures from our visit check out our Almendra Blanca page.
As with all our bars this is crafted with our house-made cocoa butter, freshly pressed from the same fine flavor beans we use to make the chocolate. Flavor notes are creamy citrus and hazelnut. Great for pairing with a sweet dessert wine.

May contain trace amounts of peanuts and tree nuts.
When the almond flavor is already part of the flavor profile because of the soil the cocoa beans are grown in.....UNBELIEVABLE and so much better than adding nuts to the chocolate. Of course the same beans being used to press cocoa butter (which is done for all GoodNow chocolates) accentuates the unique notes/flavor even more and gives a silky smoothness.
Goodnow has never made a bad bar of chocolate. This one has a very unique taste which I loved
We love pretty much the entire central and south American line from Goodnow, and the Almendra Blanca is probably right up there with our favorites.
