Pure Passion Fruit
About the Passion Fruit
We source the passion fruit for this bar from Cocoa Supply, a family owned business based in Ecuador. They work directly with their farmers and producers, and pay prices above Fair Trade minimums. They also work with farms to provide training and education. Be sure to check out their website for more information about their sourcing practices and how they’re working with farms and farmers.
About Our Asochivite Cacao
The Q’eqchi Maya farmers of Chivite, Guatemala harvest cacao from the wild trees surrounding their village, and handle all of the fermentation and drying themselves. They harvest our beans from ten specific farms, and ferment and dry them using our custom fermentation and drying protocols. The result is extremely bright and fruity beans, and we preserve those qualities through our careful roasting and conching process.
About Our Freshly Pressed, Single Origin Cocoa Butter
Most cocoa butter used in chocolate bars is made from many different types of cacao beans, and then deodorized to remove all the flavor. This means the cocoa butter is diluting the natural flavors of the chocolate to which it’s added. However, as with all our bars, we freshly press our cocoa butter from the same beans we use to make our chocolate. This ensures the cocoa butter retains the single origin flavors of the beans, which enhances and intensifies the flavor, and also makes each bar exceptionally smooth.

A great, smooth dark chocolate bar with the sweet-tart essence of passion fruit that comes shining through. One of my favorite combinations!
The passion fruit is real taste and the chocolate divine.
Love it!!! Best Passion fruit flavor....really tastes like passion fruit
This inclusion vanished from right in front of me in one minute, and it is very rare for me to devour a whole bar so quickly! Mark my words: this is the best PASSION FRUIT DARK CHOCOLATE THAT HAS EVER BEEN MADE. Honestly, I owe Tom & Monica of @goodnowfarms for this STUNNING tasting experience. Their Guatemalan Asochivite Cacao pairs perfectly with the tropical citrus flavors of passion fruit. The result is extremely powerful and mind-blowing: sweet, tart, tangy, with a slightly bitter-sour citruciness. It also has an enriching and fragrant aroma. Flavor profile: I would dare to mention mango, peach, kiwi, lemon, blackberry, pineapple, and much more. This is a tropical fruit-blast!!! The finish-aftertaste is mild and clean. I can't believe how clear everything is in this chocolate bar. It fills me with great satisfaction to taste my needs answered... in such a clear and precise manner. In short, they could not do better. I am not used to giving a Stamp for Excellence, but I will make an exception to my rule. This is not only the greatest way to sample Goodnow Farms Chocolate, it is one of the best tasting, best quality ingredients you will ever find on the market. Period.
I loved the Pure Passion Fruit bar. It had melt in your mouth fruity flavor that was just delicious. I'd love to see it as a regularly available bar.
