DESCRIPTION: This chocolate bar flatters the duality of the two climates in Bolivia. It is a perfect combination of the pureness found only in the jungles of the Amazon and the purest wealth of the Andes. When the Dark Chocolate is combined with ANDEAN ROYAL QUINOA and a touch of salt (from the salt desert of UYUNI), it will delight your palate with a strong and balanced taste. Royal Quinoa is the only cereal that has the exceptional nutritional value and has garnered superfood status in recent years. It originated simultaneously in different highlands regions of Bolivia. Some findings show that the cultivation of QUINOA goes back 500 BC. and were used as food as early as 3000 BC. "While no single food can supply all the life sustaining nutrients, QUINOA comes close as any other in the plant animal kingdom"
