Just when I thought mankind’s greatest invention could not get any better (see my compilation of pho reviews), I learn about a company called Marou Faiseurs de Chocolat which makes pho chocolate. Per Bloomberg’s article, These Asian Chocolatiers Are Spicing Up the Global Sweets Scene, pho chocolate is, “A distinctly Vietnamese communion of dark chocolate with star anise, cardamom, coriander, fennel, cloves, cinnamon, and pepper—a classic melange in the country’s famous soup, without the beef.” I’m not a fan of dark chocolate but if this tastes anything like a delicious bowl of pho, I’m willing to give it a shot. Indeed the article says that the inspiration for the chocolate came from a pho vendor near the chocolate factory who was grilling fresh spices for her soup noodle dishes. Someone please figure out which vendor this is so I can have a pho taste test and a chocolate taste test the next time I am in Vietnam.
