Based in Gallargues-le-Montueux in Occitanie, France, Barre Clandestine was founded in 2022 by Émilie and Emmanuel. Émilie is a great chocolate lover, who, on discovering that only a handful of passionate craftsmen made their chocolate from the bean, wanted to learn this skill. Falling in love with this profession, she could no longer see herself doing anything else: selecting the best beans, imagining recipes to reveal incredible aromas, creating taste emotions... Émilie left a comfortable public sector role, a position of responsibility, to make chocolate, out of passion. Before chocolate, Emmanuel divided his life between two activities: consultant in the energy sector by day and magician by night.  Consulting taught rigor and high standards, whilst magic allowed Emmanuel to cultivate astonishment. "Today, I would like our chocolate to be the synthesis of my personality, both demanding in terms of quality and values, surprising in its taste."

“At the foot of Pic Saint-Loup, between vineyards and scrubland, Les Co’Pains du Pic are one of the rare artisans to make sourdough bread from ancient cereals, without added yeast. Listening to our childhood memories, we combined our grand cru dark chocolate from Belize with “Méteil” country bread which reveals its rustic aromas of Sous bois, while providing the characteristic comfort of good crusty bread.”We had to look this up – Sous bois is a French term meaning undergrowth or forest floor. It’s used to indicate more than just dead leaves, with a mushroom, white truffle, hint of crushed pine needles or other vegetative quality to it.

Ingredients: organic cacau beans (49%), organic cane sugar (26%), organic cacau butter (13%), organic sourdough bread (rye and wheat flour) (12%)
