This is no ordinary chocolate. Created by renowned chef Thomas Keller (The French Laundry, Per Se, Bouchon) and Armando Manni (famous for his chef-beloved super antioxidant Tuscan extra virgin olive oil), the K+M line of extravirgin chocolate is like no chocolate you've had before.
With this dark chocolate gift box, welcome to the delicious dark side, with rich, complex flavors highlighting the dramatic differences from four different origins. The four-pack includes: Dark Ecuador, Dark Nicaragua, Dark Peru, Dark Magadascar. And perfectly chic to boot.
The cocoa bean is naturally high in antioxidants that not only provide much of the aroma and flavor of chocolate, but also offer a wide range of health benefits. But standard methods used today for turning cocoa beans into chocolate often result in a 60 percent or more loss of those antioxidants.
In a pilot study, K+M found that their proprietary chocolate-making process retains three times the amount of antioxidants versus the common method. Their unique production methodology and the addition of heart-healthy MANNI organic extra-virgin olive oil infuses their bean-to-bar chocolate with its signature texture while further boosting its antioxidant properties.
Good for your body, good for your soul.

About the brand: As the first and only American-born chef to hold multiple three-star ratings from the prestigious Michelin Guide, Thomas Keller has established a reputation for excellence unparalleled in American cuisine. In Tuscany, Armando Manni has forged a similar reputation for quality by producing super-antioxidant, extra-virgin olive oil. Together, they have spent the past five years on a unique mission: crafting a chocolate from the bean unlike any we have seen before. They have collaborated with the University of Florence to develop a new methodology to preserve the naturally occurring antioxidants in the cocoa beans. This proprietary process produces delicious, complex chocolate that draws the full potential out of every bean.
