Scharffen Berger Ben Tre Chocolate

Updated on December 28, 2010

Do you appreciate high quality, rich dark chocolate? If so, you simply must try the delicious Ben Tre chocolate bar from Scharffen Berger. This isn’t the kind of chocolate that’s meant to be scarfed down as a quick, on-the-go snack. Rather, Scharffen Berger’s Ben Tre chocolate is intended to be savored slowly as a true gourmet chocolate experience.

Scharffen Berger Ben Tre Chocolate: Amazing Flavor

With the first bite, you’ll know right away that the Scharffen Berger Ben Tre chocolate bar is no ordinary candy treat. This unique and flavorful treat is a delightfully decadent 72 percent cacao dark chocolate bar that is made in small batches exclusively from cacao beans from its namesake, the Ben Tre province located in the southern part of Vietnam.

The flavor of a Scharffen Berger Ben Tre chocolate bar is like nothing you’ve tried before. It’s definitely dark chocolate – rich, decadent, delightful dark chocolate – but there’s much more to enjoy. The chocolate taste is enhanced with complex notes of banana, cinnamon and fig, resulting in a unique flavor combination that is hard to describe. It’s spicy, fruity and bitter (in a good way) all at once.

Scharffen Berger is dedicated to finding the most unique and high quality cocoa beans. It is the search for the best and most unique coffe beans that led Scharffen Berger to Ben Tre, a part of Vietnam that is recognized as a top region for growing exceptional cocoa beans. Scharffen Berger’s Ben Tre bar is among the first Vietnamese single-origin chocolate bars to be offered for sale in the United States.

“What makes the Scharffen Berger Ben Tre bar incredibly special is the attention to quality and care given throughout the entire bean-to-bar process,” said Ray Major, lead expert on cacao sourcing for Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker. “Plantations are small in Vietnam and the farmers are meticulous cultivators, treating their properties more like gardens rather than farms.”
