The distinctive features of Modica chocolate

Modica IGP chocolate has a number of unique characteristics that make it a precious and unique product. Firstly, it is produced cold, without the addition of butter or milk, according to an ancient and specific tradition. This method of production gives Modica IGP chocolate a grainy and crunchy texture that slowly dissolves in the mouth, offering an unprecedented sensory experience. Moreover, Modica IGP chocolate has an intense and strong flavour, the result of using high quality ingredients such as cocoa from the best producers and cane sugar. Thanks to its millenary history and techniques handed down from generation to generation, Modica IGP chocolate is a gastronomic delicacy that embodies the authenticity and taste of the wonderful territory of Sicily.
