"The Forager collection is madly experimental and multilayered. At first, we deconstruct all ingredients and then combine them back to form one of a kind chocolate bars with 'patented' flavours. With this collection we have created new way of introducing flavours into the chocolate by using locally sourced and intense ingredients refined into chocolate bar for them to naturally extend the complex chemical flavour composition of cacao."
Kefir is milk’s victory against time. In Lithuania, we have ancient traditions of creating kefir, an authentic culinary heritage product. Kefir contains probiotics, a symbiosis of beneficial bacteria and yeast that ferments the milk. From generation to generation, the mysterious kefir grain is passed on to perpetuate this sparkling beverage. Living up to my innovative spirit, I decided to make something genuinely unorthodox by blending kefir into chocolate. Due to living microorganisms, this bar ages like cheese and flavors develop over time. How timeless is that?

In a little town on the Eastern side of Lithuania, Chocolate Naive makes their bean to bar chocolate. Each and every morning, the chocolate master carefully roasts fresh cacao beans whose delicious aroma gently awakens the residents of the town. Just as they were hundreds of years ago, cacao beans are slowly rolled and conched to releasetheir extraordinary bouquet of fruits, nuts and flowers in a delicately finished chocolate bar. These handcrafted bars are later stored to mature and form a complicated array of tastes and seasonings.
