This bar is inspired by the traditional corn and masa-based beverage Atole of Mesoamerican origin, where toasted corn or masa is blended with water or milk, piloncillo (unrefined cane sugar), vanilla, and optional spices, fruits, or chocolate. The consistency of this beverage can range from a thick porridge to a thin liquid. Here Monsoon Chocolat has refined the blue corn into a traditional white chocolate that retains just enough texture to enhance the perception of the delicate and floral qualities of the heirloom corn.

About the Maker 

Drawing inspiration from local ingredients, Monsoon Chocolates transform transparently-sourced cacao from all over the world into craft chocolate bars, bon bons, confections, desserts, and beverages. The chocolate they make is truly a collaboration between themselves and the farm workers who grow, harvest, ferment, and dry the cacao. Their goal is to honor the farm worker's hard work by processing the cacao as minimally as possible to reveal the flavors inherent in the beans.
