The oldest family-owned and operated company in the United States, Guittard Chocolate Comp
L’Etoile du Nord 64% Cacao has a nice balance of dark, bittersweet chocolate flavor, minimal sweetness and mellow spiciness. This is an excellent baking and eating chocolate that is universally well-liked. From Guittard Chocolate Company, in operation since 1868 and the oldest family-owned and operated company in the United States. The elaborate process of turning cacao beans into Guittard chocolate has been handed down through generations, from drying the beans naturally in the sun, to French roasting, stone grinding and conching formulas that were developed by Etienne himself. All Guittard chocolates use only all-natural ingredients, such as pure cane sugar, real vanilla and fresh milk. They are free of any genetically modified ingredients. All are kosher certified by the Orthodox Union, and produced on traditional European equipment to ensure quality and consistency.
