MASTICHA & ALMONDS

3.50

Masticha is the resin of the mastic tree, found on the Greek island of Chios. It is produced only in the southern part of the island in the 24 villages and communities known as “Mastichochoria” (literally “the mastic villages”). The process is slow, with gatherers waiting weeks for the tree to weep its precious fluid. For that reason, it is also known as “mastic tears”. Almond trees reflect the beauty and health of the Mediterranean terroir and climate. Bloomed almonds are the first signs of spring and their seeds are ranked on the top of the world’s most nutritious and versatile nuts, known for their many health benefits. So coming all together, in this chocolate bar, our signature dark chocolate with the most seductive spice in Mediterranean and the finest selected almonds, provide a truly fascinating taste experience.
