Naive - Milk Chocolate - Durian 61%Naive
Cheese pretending it's a fruit, telling lies is not so cute.
Under spikes of Stilton hides, bring your sneaky stink outside.
You knock snouts from way afar, we'll accept you as you are.
Jungle King with unwashed socks!? Same no more, as this taste rocks!
Plug you nose and you will see, this duet is meant to be.
FACTS. Yes, the fruit may be difficult to handle, bearing likeness to some sort of medieval weapon. But once you get down to the pale yellow, creamy flesh, you'll get to experience overtones of hazelnut, apricot, caramelized banana and egg custard. Words will fail you: there's just no other flavour like it. You will either be overcome, or seduced by its powerful, declarative presence, or reject it outright. And run screaming.
This chocolate is made in-house with organic specialty cacao, which is mixed in certain proportions to form clean, rich and flavorful base. The blend formulation is classified, but we can assure you it is top quality and it fits perfectly with Chocolate Naive standards and values.

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.
Tried this and it's amazingly delish! None of the pungent smell but a nice hint of an aftertaste of the king of fruit.My kids who detest durians love this too.
