Jcoco’s Director of Ecommerce (and Miami native) Mellina White dreamed up the flavor combination of their Mango Plantain bar from two distinct recollections: her grandmother’s mango tree, always bursting with fruit in the summertime, and how almost every meal included some form of plantain. “To me,” Mellina says, “this bar is home.” Crunchy chewy bits of tropical fruits smothered in high cacao (47%) Peruvian milk chocolate. A pinch of sea salt clarifies diced mango and plantain chips, while a dash of habanero delivers a piquant finish. The cacao origin is Rupa-Rupa, Upper Amazon region of Peru. The beans are fermented 7 days, dried 7 days with a medium roast. Pairing suggestion: Picture palm trees and enjoy Mango Plantain with a spicy rye whiskey and a plate of gruyere and asiago cheeses, with coconut shavings on the side.
