In this chocolate, Ritual highlights the amazing flavor and aroma of high quality vanilla beans. Made with Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, this chocolate is rich, dark and creamy with a floral, buttery aroma. While we typically believe in letting the true flavor of the cacao shine through without the addition of vanilla, in this chocolate we're highlighting the amazing flavors of bourbon vanilla. We're using whole vanilla beans from Madagascar and combining them with our Mid Mountain Blend chocolate. If you're curious about the higher price point of this bar, it all has to do with the cost of vanilla. We're adding a relatively high amount of pure vanilla to this chocolate, and bourbon vanilla from Madagascar just so happens to be one of the most expensive ingredients in the world.
About Ritual Chocolate
Anna Davies and Robbie Stout started Ritual in 2010 in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, eventually settling in the mountain town of Park City Utah, and traveling the world in search of the best cacao. They fell in love with chocolate—not just the eating part, but the history of and the beautiful stories of small chocolatiers around Europe that would live above their chocolate shops and devote their lives to creating and perfecting their craft.
Ritual uses old world techniques combined with newer machinery to craft the best and smoothest chocolate possible. They believe that chocolate is about experiences. Tasting experiences. Simple moments to share. A gift to unwrap. A break in a long day. A reward with a glass of wine and your close friend. It's about sharing the small moments and connecting with each other, which is what Ritual Chocolate is about.
