Kissin' Cousins

  A Brazilian relative of the cocoa bean, called cupuacu (koo-poo-AH- soo) , has been successfully turned into a twin of chocolate. The resulting product, called and " Amazon Bar", has the look, texture, and flavor of a fine  chocolate, with faint notes of fruit and coffee.

  Amazon Bars come in dark and milk varieties, plain or with almonds or crisped rice. All are naturally caffeine free and can be used for baking (products made with them will be lighter in color than those made with chocolate).
  Look for Amazon Bars in specialty supermarkets. Or you can order them from the Amazon Origins, Inc. Internet site at  NOTE: ( internet site no longer active)
