Cinnamon Donut and Rum Dark Chocolate Bar
Bronze Medal Winner at the NZ Chocolate Awards 2022 - Bean to Bar category
We've all committed the odd fashion crime. But did you know you can actually go to jail for wearing too much gold lamé?
The Baron found that out the hard way – and was locked up for life.
To escape, he distracted the guards from their sugary, cinnamony afternoon donuts and spiked them with contraband rum. They knocked the guards out cold, and soon The Baron was free.
To celebrate, he recreated the flavour in chocolate.
It’s so good it should be illegal. Consume responsibly.

The Cathliro Way is a committed way of working directly with villages in Central Guadalcanal with over two-hundred farmers. Primarily working with women (70% of farmers are women), Cathliro goes out weekly to the villages to purchase wet beans. The farmers are paid cash upon the weighing of the wet beans in the village. Cathliro then takes the beans into their location in Honiara and ferments and sun-dries the beans by village. The quality and flavour profile is consistent, with variants by village of course, but the dominant notes are chocolate with light fruity and floral notes. Due to low acidity in the beans, they are great for snacking on raw or lightly roasted and for producing rounded full-flavoured chocolate.
After sun-drying, the beans are stored by village and are ready for shipping. Cathliro works directly with the villages in giving back and in educating the farmers on tree management, health, farm management, saving, sanitation and how to use cocoa as a daily food on a village level. The main goal of Cathliro is to improve the quality of life for cocoa growing communities.
