Valrhona Cara√Įbe 66% Dark Chocolate Sampler

Darkly Fruity

From Caribbean plan¬≠ta¬≠tions comes this this tin of one of Valrhona‚Äôs fruiter, aro¬≠mat¬≠ic blends. Each bite is a call to the warm, breezy isles of the Americas.


A blend of Trini¬≠tario cacao beans from dif¬≠fer¬≠ent plan¬≠ta¬≠tions along the Caribbean, the Cara√Įbe choco¬≠late squares are bal¬≠anced and vel¬≠vety, aro¬≠mat¬≠ic and fruity, bare¬≠ly sweet, and reveals the del¬≠i¬≠cate fla¬≠vors of almonds and roast¬≠ed cof¬≠fee. It has a long fin¬≠ish with a slight¬≠ly oaky tinge to it.


As a choco¬≠late square, the Cara√Įbe makes a deca¬≠dent treat with your tea or cof¬≠fee. It is, of course, great to pair with many dif¬≠fer¬≠ent fla¬≠vor pro¬≠files. We like it with all things cit¬≠rusy, of course‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČfrom clemen¬≠tines to grape¬≠fruit to the ever-pop¬≠u¬≠lar orange‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČto bring out its fruity notes best. Reach for some nuts, be they almond, wal¬≠nut, or hazel¬≠nut, to com¬≠ple¬≠ment its fla¬≠vors. Choose a for¬≠ti¬≠fied wine like port or a red wine in the port tra¬≠di¬≠tion like Mal¬≠bec, Zin¬≠fan¬≠del, or Shi¬≠raz to go with your treat!


Fruity notes are a Val¬≠rhona sig¬≠na¬≠ture, a result of this choco¬≠late house‚Äôs light cacao roast¬≠ing style. They also tend to be sharp or tan¬≠nic, from both the roast¬≠ing and the fer¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠tion process¬≠es of the beans. Of all the pres¬≠ti¬≠gious choco¬≠late brands from France, Val¬≠rhona is a text¬≠book exam¬≠ple of smooth¬≠ness. In the 1980s, Val¬≠rhona pio¬≠neered the Grand Cru choco¬≠late move¬≠ment, includ¬≠ing the exclu¬≠sive ter¬≠roir of their dif¬≠fer¬≠ent part¬≠ner plan¬≠ta¬≠tions in com¬≠ing up with their blends.

Storage Instructions

Store your choco¬≠lates in a cool, dark place, ide¬≠al¬≠ly between 18 to 24¬įC. You can use the refrig¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tor, but place the choco¬≠late in an air¬≠tight con¬≠tain¬≠er to keep the mois¬≠ture and humid¬≠i¬≠ty out‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČand retain its full range of fla¬≠vors, of course!
