I can get lots of cool things here in Austin, but one thing I can’t get is Mast Brothers Chocolate. So I am telling you about something that I’ve never actually eaten. Despite that little detail, I am very in love. These bars had me at hello. Look at these beauties!
I went to the Mast Brothers website to find out if I could buy some online (answer: no), and was intrigued, make that fascinated, by this picture of the brothers on their main page. Doesn’t it make you want to know more? Who are these people making the chocolate?
Despite this picture, they are not Amish. They are 30-something brothers who look pretty normal the rest of the time. They make the chocolate from bean to bar. The brothers buy the beans, roast them and make chocolate from scratch. Utterly fantastic.
Their info page is delightfully vintage. I so love it when people do things that are weird and different in a wonderful way.
