Blanxart Sugar-Free White Chocolate 100g
Sweetness without Sugar
Blanxart has made a name for itself as a purveyor of amazing single-origin chocolates. But founder Francesc Agrás caters to all tastes and has created this guilt-free white chocolate bar as a result.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
This creamy, buttery white chocolate bar is as rich as any of its milk and dark chocolate counterparts. It comes with a hint of vanilla flavoring and, because all white chocolate needs an extra helping hand for sweetness, maltitol sugar alcohol is added. It has 75 percent of the sweetness of regular sugar, so you don’t miss a thing.
PREPARATION OR PAIRINGS
The creamy finish of white chocolate makes it a lovely complement to citrus fruit, while its sweetness makes a great contrast to all things salty and spicy. Try white chocolate pieces with a bowl of strawberries and macadamia nuts. It also goes well with dessert-style cheeses like Brie de Meaux AOC by Fromagerie Beillevaire. For the Japanese food-lovers, this is the perfect chocolate to pair with matcha.
A HUMBLE START
In April of 1954, Francesc Agrás set up what was then Bombons Blanxart Chocolate Company in a small, rented building in the Les Corts neighborhood of Barcelona. Within the small factory, everything from selecting cacao beans to toasting and grinding happened, allowing the chocolatier and his assistants full control of the chocolate at each stage of the process. They were able to relocate to Sat Joan Despi, another, better part of Barcelona in more recent years, where they continue to produce some of the finest chocolate in Spain.
Store your chocolates in a cool, dark place, ideally between 18 to 24°C. You can use the refrigerator, but place the chocolate in an airtight container to keep the moisture and humidity out—and retain its full range of flavors, of course!
