Fjåk - Milk Chocolate - Liquorice Root 50%Fjak
Does including liquorice root in a chocolate bar make it medicinal? We’re not sure but it’s definitely a convenient way to justify this purchase… Not that we need any sort of rationalization when it comes to chocolates. Looking for a gift for that English friend who has to have his daily dose of English liquorice candy? What about that friend who is adamant about chocolates luring her away from her healthy(ish) lifestyle? Now she can have the best of both worlds.

As the first bean-to-bar chocolate maker in Norway, Agur and Siv - the co-founders of Fjåk Sjokolade, infused natural Nordic elements of the finest quality into ethically and sustainably traded cacao beans to create beautiful, au naturel, award-winning chocolates. “Fjåk” roughly translates to “loveable” or “honest” in the Hardanger dialect, which roots this chocolate maker to the ancient fine craft of chocolate making and spreading bona fide love and candidness for craft chocolate. The excellence of their chocolates speaks for itself, as Fjåk had won 7 awards for all 7 bars that they had put up for the Academy of Chocolate Awards within 9 months of being in the market.
The liquorice is muted but this is a bar addictive on its own terms: sweet and smooth with a malty finish.
