|Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Peanut Butter Hearts|
Valentine's Day Collection also with 7-pieces but these are 5 different varieties of chocolates. There are two of the peanut butter hearts we already looked. There is both milk chocolate and dark chocolate pieces that I will lay out one at a time for you to look at. First, this shot of the entire 7 pieces in the box. I took these out of the box but I copies the layout of the chocolates that was inside the box, just moved them a bit closer and put them in a non-brown background so you could see them a clearly. On the back of the box it lists Liquid Caramel Truffle that would be in white chocolate but inside my box was two different sea salt caramels... I'm fine with that because I'm not a huge fan of white chocolate but I know that given the ingredients this would have been a real white chocolate and it would have been nice to share what Chocolate Chocolate Chocolates version of that type of our sacred substance is like. So many companies add oils and fats beyond cocoa butter and that makes it white candy versus white chocolate; this brand is creating real white chocolate.
With a name like Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate this Saint Louis company must attract a lot of attention. A company has to go beyond initial name grabbing to be worthy in our eyes. Their ingredients are 20% or more certified Fair Trade by Fair Trade U.S.A., a 501 non-profit that wants to "promote sustainable livelihoods for farmers and workers and protect the environment". Among the ingredients in these two boxes that are certified are cane sugar, cocoa butter, and chocolate liquor. There is good information about allergens for anyone who needs that. The palm fruit and palm kernel oil in the peanut butter filling does not affect the milk chocolate itself plus these but it may be of concern to some environmentalist; it is a matter of how it is farmed and whether or not rainforests are being destroyed but some manufacturer have earned favorable ratings from environmental groups, too.
Ultimately Sacrament status comes down to the chocolate and how well it blends with other flavors. The Peanut Butter Hearts are Sacrament worthy and appeal to those milk chocolate and peanut butter lovers in your life that really dislike darker chocolate. The Valentine Collection is more of a mixed bag which is often the case with a variety box of any food item.
