Taraluna has a close relationship with Sjaak's and this means they carry a lot of Sjaak's products day in and day out, but especially for the holidays. Easter 2012 is no exception and they sent us this adorable little Easter basket made by Sjaak's. As you can see it is a milk chocolate basket, a milk chocolate bunny, and in this photo you see two of the three milk chocolate eggs as well as a few strands of the green recycled paper used for "grass" holding them all up.
The basket may seem small at 3.25 X 2 X 2.5 inches but it is solid milk chocolate made the Sjaak's way -- certified organic and fair trade, no artificial ingredients. It has been moled to resemble a wooden basket to some degree.
The bunny is 1.75 X 1 X2.5 inches and he is a milk chocolate shell over a milk chocolate filling. This bunny is crouching down, his ears back, and there is seem running along his back wehre the two pieces were put together. This is similar to the dark bunny you can find online as well.
dark chocolate versions of these you might want to check out.
Since this is a retailer feature not a chocolatier feature, I'll just say that the milk chocolate is the exact quality I expect from Sjaak's -- creamy yet very much chocolate, with a strong cocoa fragrance, that melts slowly in your mouth because of its purity.
Taraluna is a great woman-owned business where everything they sell in turns empowers those people who make the items you buy. Whether it is chocolate or something else, we have never had a bad product from Taraluna. I urge you all, Sisters and Brothers, to check them out and seriously consider buying this completely chocolate Easter basket. While it may seem small, it is delicious from start to finish and the "grass" is recyclable or better yet, reusable for other decorating needs you may have later in the year or even next Easter. Taraluna also has Easter items that are not chocolate in case you are interested in that as well.
