HERSHEY, Pa. Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker has released a limited edition chocolate bar that has hints of both spices and fruit.
The new Ben Tre chocolate bar is made with cacao beans from the Ben Tre province of Vietnam, the company said. Beginning this month, the Scharffen Berger Ben Tre chocolate bar will be available on the chocolate maker's website and select retail locations nationwide.
"What makes the Scharffen Berger Ben Tre bar incredibly special is the attention to quality and care given throughout the entire bean-to-bar process," said Ray Major, lead expert on cacao sourcing for Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker. "Plantations are small in Vietnam, and the farmers are meticulous cultivators, treating their properties more like gardens rather than farms."
