...Touched for the very first time.
You know EVOO, but do you know EVCB? Yes, we’re talking about extra virgin chocolate bars—chocolate that’s made by combining single-origin cocoa beans and organic extra-virgin olive oil. These chocolate bars, created by chef Thomas Keller, olive oil producer Armando Manni, and chocolatier Chi Bui, have EVOO in place of cocoa butter, which gives the chocolate a super silky texture, increases the amount of antioxidants in each bar, and helps reveal the more nuanced flavors in the cacao. Another thing that sets them apart? These bars are made with varying amounts of milk, so you can really taste the cacao and the difference in taste that the milk imparts. Each set comes with a flight of three bars—milk, dark milk, and dark—from either Ecuador or Nicaragua. You can also opt for the gift box, which contains 2 bars from each country. Whatever you choose, the result is a totally new chocolate experience.

Meet the Maker
K+M Chocolate is the brainchild of Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller and Italian olive oil producer Armando Manni, who, together with chef-turned-chocolatier Chi Bui, scientists at the University of Florence, and cacao farmers in Ecuador and Nicaragua, spent 5 years creating a totally new type of chocolate: one made with organic extra virgin olive oil in place of cocoa butter. Not only does this innovative process create chocolate bars that taste exceptionally complex, but it also preserves the naturally occurring antioxidants in the cocoa beans—so these bars are good tasting and good for you.View Full Profile
