Kefir is a fermented milk product with a long tradition in Lithuania. The probiotics, yeast and beneficial bacteria in Kefir that provide health benefits are living organisms whose flavor changes as they age. Like sourdough starters, the kefir "grain" is passed down from generation to generation as part of a family's cultural heritage. Domantas Uzpalis celebrates his country's love of Kefir with this unorthodox bar.

In the tiny town of Giedraičiai, in eastern Lithuania, Domantas Užpalis creates unique chocolates blending tradition with instinct and innovation. Naive is one of just a few bean-to-bar makers across Europe. In his small farmhouse workshop, Domantas takes carefully selected beans through the labor-intensive steps to make his exquisite bars, often combining ingredients foraged from the forests nearby, milk from the town's grass-fed cows and spices from afar to realize his singular vision.
