When I offer these lovely little raspberry chocolates at the end of a tasting or tucked into a customer’s order as an extra goody, everyone wants to know if I have more on hand.
So, here they are!
They are such a beautiful burst of pure raspberry lusciousness…not too sweet, not too tart, dairy-free, and very, very raspberry. One or two pieces just hits the spot when you are seeking a sweet treat. I might have a nice square of dark chocolate…something with very chocolatey notes… like the Friis Holm Triple Churned Chuno or the Kahkow Los Bejucos…and then follow it with one of these lovelies. Sheer perfection and satisfaction for the taste buds!
They come in little bags tied with a ribbon, 8 pieces per bag, which is one ounce. When you indicate the quantity you would like, a quantity of 1 is equivalent to a 1-oz bag. 2 oz fit very nicely in a bag, and that is 16 pieces.
Valrhona is the French giant in the small world of fine chocolate. Thanks to their first “Grand Cru” chocolate bar Guanaja, crafted in 1986, the fine chocolate revolution began to take shape and a trail was blazed for future micro-batch makers who wanted to work with fine flavor beans.
Based in Tain-l’Hermitage near Lyon, the company was founded in 1922 and adopted the name Valrhona in 1947 in homage to its location in the Rhône Valley.
Since January 2020, Valrhona has been a proud member of the B Corp community. This certification is reserved for the world’s most ethically committed companies whose mission is to create a positive social and environmental impact. Valrhona has pledged to create a fairer and more sustainable cocoa industry that makes the world a better place. Their mission includes improving the living and working conditions of farmers, protecting the environment and preserving the soil so that fine flavor cacao beans can continue to flourish.
Valrhona is the rare big corporation in the chocolate industry that we can count on to make truly ethical choices and ethical chocolate.
