Indulge this Halloween with this craft chocolate collection: a fantastic present to gift this spooky season, or a great treat for yourself.
We have put together 4 delicious bars, each with a small nod to Halloween and its various traditions. We have included white, milk, and dark in this collection so you can enjoy the full craft chocolate spectrum.
Firstly, we have the Omnom Coffee and Milk bar, this luxury white chocolate is ground with coffee beans, creating a bar reminiscent of coffee buttercream. This bars’ geometric bat packaging made us question why these furry creatures have become the poster animal for halloween. Three species of bat are blood-drinkers, influencing Bram Stoker to include them in his novel Dracula (1897), where he depicted vampires shapeshifting into bats.
Next, we have a Peruvian milk bar from Hogarth, flavoured with Kumara (sweet potato). The potato crisps create a sweet and fruity bar, with a flavour similar to that of the quintessential Halloween pumpkin.
For our third bar, we have included Taza’s Mexicano Cacao Puro disk. Taza simply grinds its organic cocoa beans with cane sugar and spice in a traditional Mexican stone mill called a molino, creating its signature gritty texture. Mexican traditions are also prevalent at Halloween, with Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) being celebrated on All Saints’ Day. This is a national holiday that joyfully celebrates the lives of lost loved ones.
And to finish off this gift box is a delicately sweet dark bar from Original Beans…because it’s orange!
