Made exclusively with cocoa (originally ground on stone), cane sugar and a flavouring (vanilla or cinnamon), this chocolate is granulated and dark in colour. It is shaped into large tablets with large blocks and although it is primarily a chocolate made to be melted, it can also be eaten as it is. Agramunt chocolate is distinct for the traditional methods used in roasting and hot-grinding the cocoa. Along with the torrons (nougat) made in this town, this chocolate obtained the 'Q' quality stamp in 1984, and the PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) in 2000.
