Kefir is milk’s victory against time. In Lithuania, there are 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 flavours develop over time. How timeless is that?

In a little town on the Eastern side of Lithuania, Naive Chocolate makes outstanding 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 release their 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. Two key principles are most important to Naive. First, the maker only works with the best ingredients in the world. Second, they seek to become world-class craftsmen in working with this type of exquisite production. Naive makes chocolate in ways that help to reveal the character of a particular cacao bean. The chocolate is finally born after a meticulous analysis of taste, colour, smell and texture.
