Chocolate, as we know it, is derived from the fatty seeds of the cocoa tree –native to Central and South America. Traditionally celebrated by the Aztecs for its rich taste and medicinal properties, these seeds have played a role in Latin American cultures for thousands of years-with its name literally translating to “food of the gods”. Since then much of the world has joined in the celebration of cocoa’s luscious taste and, more recently, have come to discover its legendary nutritional properties. The many health benefits that have now become associated with cocoa are a result of its abundant load of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants –with studies linking moderate cocoa consumption to a variety of benefits, ranging from increasing cardiovascular health to helping control blood pressure.
Hand crafted by our master chocolatier using only the highest quality organic cocoa beans, our chocolates strive to carry on the time-honored respect for this divine fruit. We believe that the genuine taste of the cocoa is what’s important, so we keep our ingredients simple: a rich blend of unsweetened chocolate and cocoa fat, a touch of sweetness from pure organic cane sugar, and (in the case of our milk chocolates) whole milk to create a silky mouth feel. These simple ingredients are then delicately infused with our own spices and herbs to give it a uniquely irresistible taste. The resulting melt-in-your-mouth creations boast the perfect gourmet texture, a rich taste of cocoa, and a variety of complex flavor profiles that promise to satisfy both dedicated connoisseurs and periodic indulgers.
This Organic Cinnamon Sichuan Dark Chocolate features our 60% cacao dark chocolate deliciously infused with ground cinnamon and crushed Sichuan peppers. The sophisticated flavor of this blend comes from these unique peppers, which instead of having the typical pungently hot taste, boast a mild citrus flavor of lemon-lime and famously create a subtle tingling numbness in the mouth. This effect beautifully opens the palate up to the spicy-sweet flavors of the cinnamon and the beautiful bitterness our premium dark cocoa. The indulgent flavor profile is melded seamlessly with our organic vanilla extract, and finished off with the perfect touch of sweetness to enhance, without covering up, the rich flavors.
