1. Art Series GuayaSamin by To’ak

To’ak is a luxury chocolate making company based out of Ecuador. The Art series is inspired by the legendary Ecuadorian artist, Oswaldo Guayasamin and is also the company’s inaugural blend. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience in the mouth- an explosion of striking flavours that gives a heady sensation of that familiar chocolate high. To accentuate the headiness, this is well paired with sweet fortified wines like Port and Pedro Ximenez sherry; in the realm of cheeses, Gruyere,Comté, aged Gouda, and Brie are recommended by To’ak.

If you’re still not sold, adding to its luxurious aura, it comes packaged in a dark wood colored box decorated with gold trimmings, and a smaller box inside with actual renditions of Guayasamin’s sketches in the form of a booklet. Imagine, a chocolate box with original sketches of Ecuador’s most celebrated artist! This isn’t just a chocolate, this is a masterpiece that tells a story.
