More about each flavor....
"Peppers and chocolate make a good pair," says grower and pepper enthusiast, Bobby of Jah Works Farm in Asheville. Both possess euphoric qualities, boost energy, and lend themselves to tasting with discernment: relishing the layers of flavors that reveal themselves slowly, and differ slightly on everyone’s tongue. Scorpion peppers are among the most piquant in the world, with more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units. Aside from the heat, The Scorpion offers a tender fruit flavor, which makes it the perfect pepper to pair with a fruit-forward cacao blend.
This chocolate isn’t a badge-of-honor experience meant to burn you from the inside out; our use of The Scorpion is judicious. We taste the fruit notes of both the pepper and the cacao.
Ingredients: Cacao, Sugar*, Cacao Butter*, Dried Trinidad Scorpion Peppers
Asheville has won national attention for its thriving craft beer scene, boasting more breweries per capita than almost any other U.S. city. Rising up to support this industry is a new kind of malt house, one that provides locally-farmed, artisan malts that bring depth and character to beers. We are honored to collaborate with this innovative business, Riverbend Malthouse, to bring you our Malted Milk Chocolate: a milk chocolate featuring Heritage barley malts, locally milled by community grain miller, Carolina Ground. To create this chocolate, we toast malted barley, and grind it with our cacao and organic milk powder.
It holds the honor of being the reigning favorite in our bean-to-bar lineup among the residents of Asheville as well as international judges, bringing home in 2016 both a silver medal in the Americas category of the International Chocolate Awards and a finalist ribbon in Garden & Gun's Made In The South Awards.
This chocolate has a creamy, malty flavor, with aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. It might bring you back to your youth, when "malt" meant a light, chocolatey milkshake.
Ingredients: Sugar*, Cacao, Cacao Butter*, Malted Barley Flour, Non-Fat Dry Milk*, Butter (milk)*
Brown Butter Milk Chocolate
We have fond memories of eating chocolate as kids: Indulging in s’mores around the campfire; sipping hot chocolate with marshmallows after sledding on a snow day; sorting Halloween candy with our friends after trick-or-treating. All of these nostalgic experiences revolved around a dear flavor to us: classic milk chocolate.
With our Brown Butter Milk Chocolate, our intent is to recreate this iconic flavor and elevate it with superb ingredients and expert attention to detail. We feature a much higher cacao percentage compared to the milk chocolates of our childhood (think 45% instead of 11%), with organic milk powder and browned butter.
This chocolate is a smooth & creamy, not-too-sweet, grown-up version of a childhood favorite.We taste caramel, cream, and yes, hot cocoa with marshmallows.
