The Nobel Chafer Beetle is a striking, metallic green and lives hidden away in traditional orchards.
This one is 255g of creamy Belgian White Couverture chocolate with 28% cocoa solids, natural vanilla and 100% pure cocoa butter.
More about this vulnerable species:
As its habitat reduces the Nobel Chafer beetle is becoming increasingly rare and is classified as ‘Vulnerable’ here, which means it has a very high risk of extinction in the wild.
This beautiful beetle prefers traditional orchards that contain mature fruit trees of 50 to 80 years old. These sites are often cleared as the trees are reach the end of their productive life.
In Britain, the species has been rare for the past century and is a Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) species with organisations such as the People’s Trust for Endangered Species taking action to save them.
