Description

Description: 

This company was founded in 2012, in Funchal - Madeira Island, after some years of experiments carried out by the owner, in which she tested several bold combinations of exotic, acidic, bitter, salty, sweet and spicy flavors in her handcrafted chocolates

The end result of her experiences was very well accepted in the regional market. The company was incorporated and the owner created a space for tasting in the large flowered garden of her house, to promote the products.

The company combines flavors such as fennel, basil, peppermint, pepper, strawberry, orange, lemon, blueberries, cherry, banana, tomato, physalis, almond, raisins, walnut, hazelnut, cinnamon, salt flower, grape and Madeira wine, among others.
