David and Cynthia are at the root of all that is beautiful, delicious and happy about SOMA. This bar is no exception, a decadent and creamy bar that somehow still packs punch with deep nutty notes and a surprising fruitness.

This bar we released with the El Vigia, because we were so excited to be carrying SOMA at The Chocolate Garage. This is one that SOMA makes for many shops and is not a new origin, but it is new to our community, so we were excited to release it! A classic Venezuelan bar in sharp contrast to the fruity El Vigia.
