The Perfect Match - Lavender and Chocolate

One of the most widely enjoyed culinary lavender pairings is lavender and chocolate.  Each, on its own, is delightful and can be partnered with many other flavors across the taste spectrum, but bring these two together and ...wow!  Each flavor elevates the other without diminishing any of its own complexity or potency. 

For chocolate lovers and lavender lovers, the pairing provides a unique taste adventure of lightly floral notes that blend beautifully with the rich notes of chocolate creating a singular experience.

Our Organic Lavender Gourmet Chocolate is made with the organic lavender that we harvest from our own certified organic fields and certified organic chocolate from Rainforest Alliance certified farms.  Rainforest Alliance is a well-respected international non-profit that works across business and agriculture, building alliances to help ensure the protection of the environment and wildlife and to improve the livelihoods of cocoa-producing farm families.

Taking into consideration the spectrum of flavor preferences and because it would never do to have just one chocolate and lavender pairing, we have embraced the maxim "more is better" with three pairings to suit everyone's palate.

Organic Lavender Dark Chocolate

Like a good glass of red wine, Organic Lavender Dark Chocolate warrants particular savoring.  Deeply rich and decadent, this chocolate is lifted by the lightly sweet notes of the lavender.  There is no bitterness to experience when enjoying this dark chocolate, nor any guilt as the health benefits of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate are well documented.  In fact, as red wine boasts the same benefit, pour yourself a glass to accompany your Organic Lavender Dark Chocolate for a "healthy" dessert.  You're welcome!

Organic Lavender Milk Chocolate

Fair warning... Organic Lavender Milk Chocolate is sweet and smooth and far too easy to gobble up.  The natural sweetness of lavender and the sweetness of this milk chocolate are equally enhanced by one another creating a flowery, strong lavender experience.

Organic Lavender White Chocolate

This is the lavender chocolate for those who don't like chocolate.  Our Organic Lavender White Chocolate contains none of the cocoa solids that are found in dark and milk chocolates.  This staff favorite is a sweet flavor retreat that is well-worth taking.  The velvety, creamy texture with sweet, subtle nutty and vanilla undertones supports the lavender through the entire taste journey.  If chocolate isn't appealing to you, may we tempt you with this "unchocolate" that pairs beautifully with lavender?

Each bar of our Organic Lavender Gourmet Chocolate is both GMO and gluten free and 1.25oz of deliciousness!

If you are new to lavender and chocolate's glorious union, we recommend trying all three flavors.  They are all so different — give your taste buds all of their options!  Then start exploring the mouthwatering wider world of lavender and chocolate... Lavender Hot Chocolate, Lavender Chocolate S'Mores, Lavender Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and the easiest and tastiest — Lavender Chocolate Brownie.

If you are, like we are, an avowed lavender and chocolate lover, let us know in the comments below how you prefer to experience this beloved flavor couple.
