La Nef Chocolate Bar - 70% Dark with Monhegan Sea SaltDylan Metrano-AP
The box that contains this new bar features a colorful cut-paper illustration from “Beautiful Blackbird,” the beloved children’s book by the incomparable Maine author and artist Ashley Bryan.
The bar is a 70% Honduran dark chocolate from Lake Yojoa, with hand-harvested Monhegan Island sea salt.
Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Ashley Bryan bars will benefit Black Lives Matter.
La Nef co-founder Mandy Metrano says “2020 has been such a difficult year. With a global pandemic and the country reckoning with systemic racism, it has been hard to know how to deal with it all. At 97 years old, Ashley Bryan is a shining example of someone who has been able to find hope and inspiration through his art and relationships, even during the horrors of war and racial segregation. With a desire to contribute to the movement for racial justice, we are thrilled to collaborate with Ashley Bryan on this bar to benefit Black Lives Matter.”
