|Real Chocolate from the Cacao Bean|
Oaxcabar's main ingredient are freshly ground locally sourced cacao beans. Lightly mixed with cane sugar then blended with hints of cinnamon followed by a slight dusting of almond. The bean pods are harvested from surrounding rain forest plantations in Oaxaca and Chiapas. Every batch of our handmade artisan chocolates will have a slightly different but similar taste depending on time of year. Try some and reap the benefits of REAL Cacao.
