Based on family recipes and named for founder George Domurot’s niece, a National Park Service Forest Ranger, Ranger Chocolate Company carefully handles each cacao bean to unlock nuance, regionality, and terroir-driven flavors in their chocolate.
This bar is influenced by the ancient Maya culture from Mesoamerica. The Mayan people are known to have combined cacao (“ka’kau”) with spices and chile peppers to produce the “drink of the gods.” With this bar, we honor the traditional ingredients found in their ancient drink, blending them into a unique chocolate experience.
