The Nobel Chafer Beetle is aÂ striking, metallic green andÂ lives hidden awayÂ in traditional orchards.
This one is 255g of creamyÂ Belgian White Couverture chocolate with 28% cocoa solids,Â natural vanilla and 100% pure cocoa butter.
More about this vulnerable species:
As its habitat reduces the Nobel Chafer beetle is becoming increasingly rareÂ and is classifiedÂ as â€˜Vulnerableâ€™ here,Â which means it hasÂ a very high risk of extinction in the wild.
This beautiful beetle prefersÂ traditional orchardsÂ that contain mature fruit trees ofÂ 50 toÂ 80 years old. These sites are often cleared as theÂ 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 SpeciesÂ taking action to save them.
