The World’s Priciest Aged Chocolate Looks Delicious

Fine chocolates are expensive by definition, but what exactly makes Aged To’ak chocolate so special that it commands a price tag of $270 for a 50-gram bar? Well, the fact that it’s created from the rarest and oldest Nacional cacao probably has something to do with it. It was made in Ecuador using a mix of cacao and cane sugar, and it was aged in a Spanish elm wooden box. Its main compounds, namely tannins and other polyphenols go through an altering process at a chemical level thanks to oxidation, and this results in an incredibly intense flavor.

The chocolate is “halal” certified, and it boasts three versions named first edition, light, and dark. Limited to just 250 bars of 50 grams each, each chocolate is presented in a hand-crafted Spanish Elm wood box, and it is accompanied by a pair of hand-made tasting utensils.
