Fodor's Expert Review Grenada Chocolate Company

Grenada Other Specialty Store

The small Grenada Chocolate Company, founded in 1999 by "free spirit" Mott Green, initially produced its now-famous chocolate bars in a small house-turned-factory in the village of Hermitage. Employees use antique machinery powered by solar energy to roast cocoa beans supplied by a local cooperative of growers representing more than 150 acres of organic cocoa farms—the largest of which is Belmont Estate. They mix and temper small batches of rich, dark chocolate that are then molded and wrapped by hand into high-quality, organic chocolate bars (cocoa powder and cocoa butter are also available). The 82% chocolate bar was awarded the silver medal in 2008, 2011, and 2013 by the London Academy of Chocolate. Buy the candy bars at Belmont Estate or in supermarkets or gift shops for about $6 each. (Green, 47, died in Grenada in 2015; he was electrocuted while working on solar-powered machinery for cooling chocolate during overseas transport.)
