We love quality chocolate (who doesn’t?), so we were excited to hear about the launch of MIA, a range of luxurious Madagascan single-origin chocolate bars ‘Made In Africa’.
Set up by a group of foodies with a shared passion for the continent, its people, wildlife and natural ingredients, each MIA product is crafted from start to finish in Madagascar with 1% of MIA sales donated to development projects in Africa.
The Criollo, Amelonado and Trinitario cocoa used is sourced directly from independent farmers in the Sambirano Valley of northwest Madagascar. The range includes six delicious variants:
We tried the intense 100% cocoa, the slightly milder 75% cocoa and the candied orange chocolate bar, which contained candied orange pieces. All were mouth-wateringly delicious and we loved the gorgeous gold-embossed packaging they came in, which made each bar feel like a special treat as you unwrapped its goodness. With their intense flavours and stunning aesthetics, they're the perfect gift for any chocolate aficionado.
MIA chocolates are available from BoroughBox (www.boroughbox.com) and Cocoa Runners (www.cocoarunners.com) for £4.00 (for a 75g pack).
