Herza Schokolade set to unveil new chocolate confectionery series
German-based Herza Schokolade has announced plans to release three new lines of chocolate pieces, which it is set to release at this year’s Food Ingredients Europe event.
The company will use the trade fair, which takes place in Paris between 3-5 December, to unveil the new series that are expected to offer a key boost to its confectionery portfolio.
Each of the new product lines contains six types of chocolate pieces, delivered in flavours including chocolate coffee chunks, cheesecake temptations and caramel creations. Adding crunch, fruit or salt turns these chocolate pieces into a flavour sensations that give muesli, snack mixes and ice cream a special note. At the shared booth 6D90 of the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe fair visitors can let the new products inspire them.
As the company noted, caramel is one of the fastest growing sweets categories around the world, and is also becoming a leading flavour in many other product areas. The new Herza caramel range offers six different chocolate pieces with the most popular caramel notes. There are short, narrow chips with a creamy toffee flavour and extra wide chips with a caramel flavour reminiscent of Butterscotch.
Both are made of white chocolate, just like the fruity caramel leaves, little amber flakes with a light, fruity caramel note. White chocolate is also the basis for the irregular Burnt Caramel cubes with their dark caramel tone and strong caramelised, burnt note, and the Salty Caramel chips with the salty accent that is more and more a trendsetter. Hard crunch gives the Salted Caramel Crunch pieces made of milk chocolate a special note.
Furthermore, the company added that its decision to create a cheesecake flavour was based on a longstanding trend for the type of flavour in cakes, pralines, yogurt and ice-cream ranges. Four of the six variants within this product type are based on white chocolate. These include Matcha Cheesecake, little green leaves with real matcha powder and cheesecake flavour, and Lime Cheesecake, irregular broken pieces with lime crispies. Blueberry Cheesecake consists of irregular pieces with a special handmade character and eye-catching purple colour from trendy blueberries.
In New York Cheesecake the white chocolate leaves are dressed up with raspberry powder and crunchy bits for a second bite. The range also features Crunchy Chocolate Cheesecake, super thick chunks of milk chocolate with brownie crispies, and Caramel Cheesecake, whose large double leaves resemble a two-layer cheesecake. The top is delicious caramel chocolate, while the bottom is white chocolate with a fresh cheesecake note for an unusual treat.
With its new product line, Herza puts beloved coffee shop classics into chocolate pieces. One is the Café Latte squares marbled in mocha and white chocolate, with a pleasing milk note. In Latte Macchiato the double chips of mocha chocolate is covered in white chocolate, giving it an unusual two-phase look with latte macchiato flavour. The Frappé Xylit chocolate chunks are a special experience. The Xylit sweetener gives these white chocolate pieces with coffee powder a cooling effect, making them refreshing like ice coffee. In contrast, the Espresso chocolate bits combine dark chocolate and coffee powder for a strong espresso note in a special format.
Meanwhile, Caramel Macchiato features irregular white chocolate chips with coffee and caramel flavour. The milk chocolate pieces with crunchy chopped Coffenibs are a special indulgence. Fair visitors can experience these innovations in person at FI Europe, and learn more about their advantages and applications.
