Daring new chocolate flavour for broccoli-lovers launches for Valentine’s Day
9th February 2024
An unusual box of chocolates has been launched just before Valentine’s Day. Tenderstem broccoli has dared to marry its flavours with premium British chocolatier, Chococo, for this limited-edition, divisive new gift.
The broccoli-flavoured chocolates are now on sale. Each box of Tender-Choc contains nine handcrafted 72% dark chocolates from Ecuador, filled with an aptly green ganache made of real Tenderstem blended with fresh Dorset cream, and the addition of almond notes for a delectable but undoubtedly unique taste.
The tender treats are hand-topped with artistic green splatters of chocolate, playfully nodding at the Tenderstem infusion within. The combination of sweet and nutty notes, coupled with the rich cream and indulgent single-origin dark chocolate tang, makes for a whirlwind (romance) of flavours.
Tenderstem partnered with renowned UK-based independent artisan chocolatier, Chococo, to handcraft these quality chocolates. Both companies are equally brave and bold enough to take the plunge – it seems that love really does make you do crazy things.
Brand director at Tenderstem, David Samuels, said: “Love knows no bounds, and neither does flavour. This Valentine’s Day, we wanted to offer something truly special and unexpected for lovebirds, to allow Brits to reflect their unique and special feelings with a unique and special gift.
“We are thrilled to have joined forces with Chococo for this truly one-off offering and inject some classic Tenderstem cheekiness into the annual day of romance.”
The co-founder of Chococo, Claire Burnet, added that the company is “thrilled” to announce this very unique collaboration. She added: “Initially, we were surprised by the prospect of this partnership, but we were excited about the possibilities of using an ingredient as versatile as Tenderstem.
“At Chococo, we have been handcrafting award-winning chocolates since 2002. Celebrating the finest, single origin, ethical chocolates and incredible flavours is at the core of what we do, so we are proud to work with one of the UK’s most well-known vegetables and looking forward to revealing these unusual chocolates to the nation’s lovers!”
