When it met Chuao Chocolatier it was love at first sight…err…taste. Seriously, the flavors are melt in your mouth amazing! As a chocolate maker, it’s no wonder they have something special for Valentine’s Day. Chocolate = Love, right?
Chuao, makers of culinary-driven, ethically sourced chocolate confections is offering limited edition bonbon collections for Valentine’s day that are the perfect gift for the chocolate lovers in your life:
- Love Child Bonbon Collection: The love child of port wine wine and chocolate covered dried strawberries, this bonbon is one of the brand’s favorites to create and eat! Dark and rich, sweet and tangy, it’s full of all natural aphrodisiacs and is ready to sweep you off your feet. Available in a 6 pc. or 12 pc. collection.
- The Aphrodisiac Heart Bonbon Collection: An assortment of luscious caramels, infused with tempting treats and bedded in decadent chocolate. Available in a 5 pc. or 16 pc. collection. Ingredients include: Salt Butter Caramel: Soft caramel with a bit of sea salt in dark chocolate*. Sweet Passion: Exotic passion fruit* cooked into soft caramel in milk chocolate*. Meyer Lemon Mojito: Meyer lemon caramel infused with fresh mint* cream in white chocolate. Strawberry Seduction: Sweet strawberry* caramel with a touch of tangy balsamic in dark chocolate*. Rosemary Salted Caramel: Salt butter caramel infused with fresh rosemary* in milk chocolate*.” / *aphrodisiac ingredients
I got to try both of these collections and they couldn’t get much different. The Love Child Bonbons are very rich and decadent. If you love dark chocolate, you will love these little bite sized strawberry chocolates. Dark chocolate isn’t my favorite so I preferred the Aphrodisiac Heart Bonbons. These were really unique and delicious — I love caramel so they were right up my alley but like nothing I’ve ever tried before. To me, these are the perfect gift for a couple to sample together!
Since I have children, Valentine’s Day isn’t all about romance, but simply LOVE.
Chuao Chocolatier has recently launched two new chocolate bars that are inspired by breakfast: Cinnamon Cereal Smoochand Strawberry Waffle Wild.
Chef Michael Antonorsi, co-founder and Master Chocolatier of Chuao Chocolatier, was inspired by America’s love of breakfast and the nostalgic experience the first meal of the day brings.
“I’ve always had a love affair with breakfast foods, whether it’s a Saturday morning with a stack of fresh strawberry waffles, or at midnight with a big bowl of cold cereal,” said Antonorsi. “Inspiration struck the moment I realized we could share the joy of these comfort foods with our fans by marrying them with our chocolate bar. This creates a convenient way to experience chocolate and breakfast any time of the day; breakfast, lunch and dinner!”
Cinnamon Cereal Smooch is a “deluxious” combination of milk chocolate passionately mixed with bits of all-natural cinnamon toast cereal, while Strawberry Waffle Wild offers a multi-sensory experience of tart dried strawberries and crispy waffles, enveloped in a bed of sweet milk chocolate. Chuao Chocolatier’s two new chocolate bars are available for an SRP of $6.00 and can be found online at www.ChuaoChocolatier.com and at the company’s Southern California chocolate cafes.
The brand’s entire line of chocolate bars can also be found online at www.ChuaoChocolatier.com and at the company’s Southern California chocolate cafes, as well as at major retailers nationwide, including Bed Bath & Beyond, REI, and Whole Foods Markets.
These chocolate bars are great little Valentine gifts for the kids — a fun treat! Of the two, we enjoyed the Cinnamon Cereal Smooch most. There’s something about the blend of cinnamon and chocolate that gets me every time. It’s an interesting mix but so yummy!
