Amano have asked us to pass on news of their new competition – with the prize a chance to win one year’s supply of Amano chocolate. (Which, apparently, is 10 bars a month.)

Amano have a growing range of origin fine chocolate bars and seem to be heading for one of the widest ranges of origins on the market.

The fledgling Utah chocolate maker are certainly excited about the new chocolate, Art Pollard, founder and chocolate maker of Amano told us.

“I’m passionate about the incredible array of flavors that are to be found in cocoa. Each time I taste a new cocoa bean, I ask myself ‘What can I do with these beans? What flavors can I bring out?’

Then I rush home and make a test batch. Such was the case with these beans and I believe this will be one of our most flavorful chocolates yet.”

For full details of the competition and terms and conditions, visit Amano’s website here. (Valid though in certain countries only, better check the list before you enter!)
