Ocean Heart

Ocean Heart is the drone of the manta ray that will help regenerate the Coral in the ocean.

I Have picked this Flavor profile because my home of  California offers amazing citrus and pistachios that  grow along the coast of the Pacific Ocean. 

The Chocolate  Madirofolo 65% enhances the citrus flavor from the marmalade that creates a  beautiful balance with traditional roasted flavors of the Praline 70% Pistachios.
