World's Best Small-batch Dark Chocolate - International Chocolate Awards Winner 2022 - Bronze

Noble dark chocolate made from Criollo cacao from the Mexican Chiapas region. One of our favourites. The light color of this chocolate may mislead you to think that you are about to taste sweet milk chocolate. In fact, you need to be prepared for the most sophisticated taste of a high-end dark chocolate bar. 

Vegan, Dairy-free, Gluten-free

This chocolate boasts the unique flavor of Mexican Criollo cocoa, featuring a creamy white interior that imparts a delicate ocher hue to the chocolate. This cocoa variety is a rarity, known for its exceptionally smooth and slightly nutty profile with minimal bitterness.

The Creole cocoa variety has been cultivated in Mexican fields for centuries, meticulously chosen by farmers from diverse backgrounds. Today, these precious cocoa trees are a scarce presence, scattered across the land. Only the La Rioja farm in Chiapas maintains a small, exclusive orchard dedicated to this single variety, the source of the chocolate Feliu crafts.

Our chocolate makers proudly refrain from using any artificial stabilizers or preservatives in their products, making their creations more temperature-sensitive compared to other premium chocolates.

To ensure the optimal taste experience, it's advisable to store our chocolates in a cool, dry place where the temperature hovers between 16°C and 18°C. Please refrain from refrigerating our chocolates, as this may cause sugar crystallization due to increased humidity, altering their texture and flavor.

On the contrary, if stored in excessively high temperatures, cocoa butter may separate and form a white film on the chocolate's surface. This loss of cocoa butter can lead to the chocolate drying out and, consequently, a potential alteration in flavor. Your mindful storage practices will help preserve the integrity of our delectable chocolates.

Excellent Customer Service

Our first order was damaged in delivery. I reached out to Hello Chocolate and they responded within 24 hours wanting to learn the details of my experience. We are looking for a Mexican made gift for our sons wedding guests and ordered a bar of each Feliu brand product. They immediately sent a replacement order and samples for the wedding. We are now enjoying the excellent Feliu chocolate and discussing what options will make our sons big day even more special.
