Herza Schokolade’s latest chocolate pieces offer tea and liquorice flavours
German-based Herza Schokolade has expanded its range with the launch of two key lines of chocolate pieces including tea and liquorice flavours, amid a rising trend of flavour pairing, writes Neill Barston.
According to the company, its latest arrivals have been created for muesli, nut mixes, cookies and ice cream, which the business believes offers confectionery brands a way to stand out from the competition.
The firm’s six different tea varieties bring together various mixtures with quality chocolate indulgence. This includes African Rooibos Orange, which zings up white chocolate leaves with the popular taste of rooibos and orange oil.
Furthermore, Japanese Matcha Peach is a combination of green matcha tea, orange and peach notes in double leaves of white chocolate. Indian Chai is perfect for ice cream or snacks – long, flat squares of milk chocolate with a spicy mix of ginger, cardamom and cloves. For an intense chocolate taste with fruity ginger and lemon nuances there’s Asian Ginger Lemon. These broad dark chocolate squares are 50 percent cocoa, and are great for hot chocolate drinks among other things. The new products are also available in organic versions.
Bitter Sweet Liquorice
With its new Bitter Sweet Liquorice line, the company has opted for the unusual. Whether salty, with a bit of crunch or a bit of heat, these six products leave no liquorice wish unmet. For example, the brown buttons of soft milk chocolate with mild liquorice nonpareilles are ideal as decor, monoproduct or muesli ingredient. In addition, it gets even more out of the ordinary, with chopped pieces of cocoa butter glaze with fruity raspberry bits and intense liquorice flavour. These new products offer customers a wide scope for creative new product ideas.
