Bright orange in colour, the miniature tomatillos silently climb their green mustache into the bright sky. The melody of their ripeness and sourness is so good it causes goosebumps and puts the mind into a state of trance. Crunchy bits of golden berries tickle the tongue while melting and mixing together with rich dark chocolate. This is a true Incan chocolate bar – sweet and sour at the same time. Some people even think this is the 3000-year-old recipe invented by the Incan Gods themselves!

In a little town on the Eastern side of Lithuania, Naive Chocolate makes outstanding bean-to-bar chocolate. Each and every morning, the chocolate master carefully roasts fresh cacao beans whose delicious aroma gently awakens the residents of the town. Just as they were hundreds of years ago, cacao beans are slowly rolled and conched to release their extraordinary bouquet of fruits, nuts and flowers in a delicately finished chocolate bar. These handcrafted bars are later stored to mature and form a complicated array of tastes and seasonings. Two key principles are most important to Naive. First, the maker only works with the best ingredients in the world. Second, they seek to become world-class craftsmen in working with this type of exquisite production. Naive makes chocolate in ways that help to reveal the character of a particular cacao bean. The chocolate is finally born after a meticulous analysis of taste, colour, smell and texture.
