The Land of Saint Domingue

Created by

level 3

I plan to maximize the unique flavor and note of Cacao Barry Origine Saint Domingue, the strong cacao note and crisp texture of Cacao Nips Crunch, and freshness of pineapple coulis. Finally, the flavor finish with the subtle note of sprout barley.
The other fruits are disappeared due to global warming, BUT pineapples are grown more. Because of that, I chose the pineapple for my product. Looking for chocolate that best matches the scent of pineapples, I chose Saint Domingo, which has a unique scent of land.
And I used the healthy sprout barley powder as a natural color instead of artificially made chemical edible pigments, which also good for pairing with Saint Domingo. Additionally, the use of sugar was minimized.
