Does anyone know if the chocolate that is made in Cozumel is available on Isla? I believe it is
Thanks Traveler, I will look for it at the airport! That is some delicious chocolate!
It's well worth seeking out. You might try emailing them to ask - one of the owners will almost certainly get back to you with information.
oh shoot - something else I will HAVE to try . . . :)
Yes. The "factory tour" is fascinating (though the one thing you don't actually get to do is tour the factory...), and you get to make your own drinking chocolate. That alone would make a visit worthwhile, but the chocolate itself is well worth seeking out. They make it from raw beans start to finish. It's properly-tempered, well-balanced, perfumed chocolate. They have a whole range of types, including one they'll only make one year then stop. I grew up on chocolate my parents bought in Brussels - I'm picky about chocolate. Kaokao is my favorite bar chocolate.
If you are ever visiting Mass, you should do a Taza chocolate tour. Their chocolate is made the same way you described and it is YUMMY!
ITA the chocolate at Taza is amazing. The Fire Puncher is my favorite and when it's available I always make a trip over to Somerville to pick up a few disks.
One of the owners at Kaokao really pushed Taza to us a couple of weeks ago. He said it was one of the very few places he knows of that makes chocolate the way Kaokao does.
I always seem to drive by it late at night. These days I'm hardly ever in the area during the day.
My local Wholefoods sells Taza as well. In the one I go to, it is either near where the other chocolate is or sometimes it is near where they keep the cheese and olive bar
