#FreebieFriday: La Orquidea Peruvian Chocolate

The Scramblog


I discovered La Orquidea Peruvian Chocolate last year at a holiday fair in Washington, DC. I had to stop and try their chocolate bars when I saw flavors and ingredients like Dark Chocolate with Quinoa, with Kiwicha (amaranth), with Cocoa Nibs and Coconut. All of La Orquidea’s chocolates are sourced and manufactured in the Peruvian Amazon.  The bars are made in small batches by hand, providing fair wages to locals, mostly women. The cacao beans used in the chocolates won an award for the most aromatic beans at the 2009 Salon du Chocolat in Paris.

The flavors are rich and delicious and I always enjoy my food more when I know that by eating it I’m supporting local farms and communities. (I enjoy a square of dark chocolate every afternoon with my coffee.)

To enter to win a variety pack of these exotic chocolate bars in time for Valentine’s Day, leave a comment on the Scramblog by this Friday at midnight or visit Facebook to leave a comment on my giveaway post this Friday.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, thank you so much! This will be the perfect gift for my boyfriend, it will remind him of his journey to Macchu Picchu this past summer.  Did you know the cacao tree is native to the Amazon? Your blog piqued my interest and I found this great article on the new flavors of chocolate that come from Peru: http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2011/10/10/141153396/in-peru-a-hunt-for-chocolate-like-youve-never-tasted-it
