We love bringing new chocolates to our 106 Pine store! We have quite a few right now that we’re just dying to share with you, so we hope you’ll come by soon!
Lillie Belle Farms brings us two new – and interesting – chocolate bars to try. First up is their tasty “Whiskey in The Bar Barrel-Aged Dark Chocolate” bar. It’s made with 65% chocolate that’s infused with oaky, distilled grain flavors, since it was aged in used whiskey barrels. “We got this idea to age chocolate in used whiskey barrels and after much trial and error we figured it out,” according to Lillie Belle’s website.
Next up is a creamy experience with a one-of-a-kind taste. Lillie Belle’s “Stella Blue” milk chocolate bar is their newest ‘bean to bar’ item. It’s made with dark milk chocolate and Rogue Creamery’s Powdered Blue Heaven Cheese! The bleu cheese adds a unique flavor that pairs the chocolate bar very well with wine.
Some more Lillie Belle highlights on our shelves – we’ve had these for a bit, but we wanted to remind you how good they taste – are the Caramelized Almond Bar and the Most Awesome Chocolate Bar EVER! The first mentioned is made with Lillie Belle’s signature 68% organic, single origin dark chocolate – yum – and then stuffed with delicious caramelized almonds. It’s a crunchy, addicting bite every time! The Most Awesome Chocolate Bar EVER is just that, and more. Crafted with home made almond and hazelnut gianduja, feuilletine wafers, sea salt, and creamy milk chocolate, it’s bound to become a favorite.
Let’s get back to the new stuff…
Just in time for Father’s Day – but these are great for everyone – Moonstruck Chocolates has crafted a gigantic peanut butter truffle that’s decorated to look like a baseball! We’re not kidding around about the size, either; it’s nearly three inches in diameter for an indulgence in chocolate-and-caramel, peanut-buttery goodness! “Milk chocolate peanut butter ganache envelops our luscious sea salt caramel, all enrobed in ivory chocolate and hand-decorated to look like a baseball!” reads their description.
Moonstruck also has a fantastic six-piece whiskey truffle collection. The truffles are infused with Hennessy V.S. Cognac, Knob Creek Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and Sazerac Rye Whiskey for delicious liqueur and dark chocolate ganache in every bite. Each truffle is topped with vintage tattoo inspired art by a tattoo artist out of Portland, Joel Baca.
We hope you’ll love these great chocolates that are new at Chocolate Box! Whether you’re looking for a gift for Dad as Father’s Day approaches, or you’re in the mood for a chocolaty indulgence, you’ll find everything you need in chocolate and wine on Pine!
