Chocolate Guide

Fun Stuff About Our Chocolate…Choc_Strawberry

All chocolate has varying amounts of cocoa, cocoa butter, sugar, milk and sometimes even cocoa liquor and vanilla to give it its signature flavor.

Kinds of Chocolate:

Milk: Has a lighter color (due to the milk), generally sweeter than Dark.

Dark: Has little or no milk.  Darker Chocolate has a richer dark brown color and higher cocoa content than Milk.  1Contains epicatechin and gallic acid, which are thought to possess cardio-protective properties (i.e. It’s good for your heart!)

White:  Does not come from the cocoa bean – So, guess what? It’s not really chocolate!  Though it sure does taste good, doesn’t it?

Sugar Free:  Taste varies.  Ours is very good.  However, easy does it!  Sugar Free chocolate can have a laxative effect when eaten in large quantities.

How To Store Chocolate:

Chocolate is very sensitive to temperature.  Store in a cool, dry place away from heat/light/humidity sources (air vents, windows, etc.).  Room temperature is fine.  If chocolate is exposed to temperature fluctuations, the chocolate loses its tempering and crystals form, creating a "cloudy" appearance known as "bloom."  It is still tasty, just not as pretty.
