COCOBEL CHOCOLATE (Woodbrook, Trinidad)

Cocobel Chocolates Trinidad



The sweet part is that COCOBEL starts (and luckily ends) right here in Trinidad.  Trinitario cacao beans are sourced from a local cocoa estate and then processed by COCOBEL from bean to bar.

COCOBEL’s final products are a luxury collection of dark chocolate bars and chocolate confections that incorporate local fruits, nuts and spices:

  • Bark – shards of chocolate sprinkled with crystallized ginger, toasted coconut & pineapple, or cranberries, apricots & almonds.
  • Bonbons – infused with local fruits and spices like gingerbread spice, chai, espresso, ginger rum, rich dark sorrel, ponche de creme, honey passion fruit, cashew coconut, or mango pepper.
  • Boxes – include multiple bonbons (from three pieces up to 25 pieces).
  • Cocoa nibs, Cocoa powder, Chocolate chips, 100% Baking bar, Market squares, Coated cocoa beans and Triple Chocolate cookies.
