Easter marked with California Prunes confectionery
UK-based chocolatier Paul A. Young has devised a special Easter offering featuring California Prunes.
His latest series of chocolate creations comes as Mintel research reveals that confectionery continues to drive Easter purchases in the UK with 49% of Easter shoppers buying chocolate gifts in 2016.
The California prune and Custard Truffle are targeted towards connoisseurs looking for an original, experimental yet balanced flavour experience.
The chocolate features Guittard white chocolate, Madagascan Vanilla, California prune purée and an Easter themed custard-yellow chocolate coating with a delicate cocoa butter decoration.
Commenting on his latest innovation, Young says: “This chocolate is a direct play on the traditional prunes and custard combination but with a thoroughly modern and innovative twist. The California prune purée delivers a wonderful texture to the truffle as well as a rich flavour and natural sweetness.
“At the heart of our brand is the ongoing commitment to produce chocolates which represent the best in class, and this can only be achieved by investing time to seek out superior flavour components which deliver the ultimate taste sensation. California prunes are regarded as quite literally the pick of the crop and therefore, feature within our select repertoire of choice, premium ingredients.”
