Cacao Bean Discovery

From the NY Times, a story of the discovery of a supply of rare Nacional cacao pods that yield especially mellow and minimally bitter chocolate.

It sure sounds delicious and intriguing, but at $12 for a 2 ounce bar and $12 for 3.5 of Nacional chocolate-covered Nacional beans, it ain’t going to be cheap. I can only hope that these special cacao trees will still be alive and producing when I get to the point where I can afford such pricey goodies.
