Dark Oregon Gianduja
Madagascar Dark Chocolate blended with Willamette Valley hazelnuts
Fruity Madagascar cacao blended with Willamette Valley hazelnuts, a few more hazelnuts folded in, and Oregon sea salt sprinkled over the back. It’s super rich and creamy from the hazelnuts, with an underlying brightness and strawberry notes at the end from the cacao, dark because it has no dairy.
Hazelnuts, also known as filberts, thrive in Oregon. The 45th parallel naturally provides the perfect conditions. If you follow it about 6500 miles easy you’ll land in Turkey, the largest hazelnut producer in the world. Unlike some other nut trees, hazelnuts are low maintenance; they have modest water needs and are self pollinating. They’ve been cultivated in Oregon since the mid-1800s, and have been the official state nut since 1989. 99% of domestic production is grown in Oregon, which is only 4% of the world’s production.
Ingredients: Cacao, hazelnuts, organic cocoa butter, Jacobsen's Salt.
