Seasonal Box – Gift Subscription
A curated box of limited edition truffles, and two Chocolarder chocolate bars. A great one off gift or subscribe them for three or six months of deliveries.
We’re always getting excited about what’s in season, there is something so special about being able to take the freshest of ingredients, and capturing them in chocolate so they can be shared. We’ll collaborate with local growers and producers, we’ll forage ourselves where safe and we’ll challenge Mike each month to come up with a new delicious combination of our chocolate and these incredible ingredients we have on our doorstep.
Cornwall has such an abundance of incredible ingredients, we have been itching for a way to showcase them in our chocolate. These truffles allow us to show off everything the ingredient can be, A filling inside, blended into the chocolate itself, even pressing them into a powder to roll our chocolates in, the possibilities are endless and plan to explore them all.
Alongside these indulgent boxes of chocs, you will receive 2 bars, usually selected from our standard range but there will be the limited edition bars crop up. Some of these are born from the ingredients in our truffles, some have been in development for a long long time, and some are just micro-batches we are experimenting with, like the truffles these will change every month and will complement the truffles.
You choose the length of the subscription, but as its a gift we’ll take the payment in one and post it to the delivery address for your chosen length of time. The longer the subscription, the cheaper it makes each box. Your first box will be posted out next working day so there is no need to wait, however, if you would prefer us to wait before posting (so it arrives for a certain occasion) please add a note at checkout. We can even pop a little note in with the first delivery to say who has sent the box and if appropriate, how many months their new subscription will last. Simply add a note at checkout if you want to add any other message at all.
July Box – Strawberry and Elderflower
This month’s box contains a box of Strawberry and Elderflower Fondant Truffles, joined by a bar of Cinnamon Toasted Nibs 74% Dark, and Oko Caribe 60% Browned Butter Milk.
Thinking about the seasons, what grows locally and what we know there will be surplus off from the local farmers due to the quiet summer season, the first thing that sprung to mind was strawberries! Thankfully the local farms haven’t had as much trouble harvesting their strawberry crop this year as initially thought, but presumably that’s because everyone is making lots of pimms at home?
We were quite surprised to find a large tree just visible from the factory in Tregoniggie woods! Zero miles, and from tree to factory in around 1 minute to be washed and soaked with sugar overnight to become beautiful elderflower syrup.
The Cornish strawberry fondant is infused with the elderflower for a sweet fruity burst inside our 72% Ashaninka dark chocolate shell. The truffle is coated in a Cornish Strawberry sugar powder.
Tasting notes: A sweet hit of strawberry and elderflower sherbet, with a malty marzipan finish.
Next month? Lots of ideas in the pipeline.
