There are a startling amount of chocolate brands that are either:
Hard or impossible to find outside of their country of origin
Not available in many flavors worldwide.
There is, of course, a solution (of sorts). If the chocolate can’t come to you, why not come to it?
If you happen to be planning a trip to Venezuela, you may want to do some research regarding which chocolates to sample during your visit. (You’ve probably heard; Venezuelan chocolate is rather famous. Case in point: Two of the top eight chocolate bars mentioned in recent New York Time article were from….you guessed it!) I’ll cheat and help you with your homework. One of the many brands you should be on the lookout for is Mantuano Chocolate.
Those of us who have had the pleasure of sampling Mantuano (in my case, more times that I care to count) could technically keep our lips sealed. However, that would be a “the less you buy, the more there is for me” mentality, and that is not my modus operandi. I believe good things ought to be shared.
