This bar is a perfect balance of sweet chocolate and salty licorice. Made with local licorice, this is sure to be a favourite among aniseed fans.
“The licorice is super hand made 🙂 We cut licourice pieces by hand and place on piece in each cavity, takes forever, but taste good. Then we pour chocolate just using a litre measure, no machine is filling the mould. Then we sprinkle sea salt and grinded REAL licourice root by hand on top.” Jenny Berg, chocolate maker.

Jenny Berg of Vintage Plantations in Sweden first studied chocolate on a study trip to the UK in 1993. But it wasn’t until 2006 when she met Pierrick Chouard of Vintage Plantations in the US that she became involved in bean-to-bar chocolate.
As Vintage Plantations in Sweden, Jenny has set up collaborations with cocoa growers in South America and the Caribbean, and takes pride in adding only raw sugar and local Nordlanska berries, herbs and speciality ingredients, such as Swedish Licorice Factory licorice, to her bars. See more
