How do we come up with our couverture chocolate delights?
Well, to be honest, we love chocolate and good food around here at the Ticket Kitchen. I mean who doesn’t like chocolate or good food?
Sometimes we get requests for new products from companies we work with as they get customer requests. In general though, three to five months before each season Ticket owner Tyler and Kalani, our Product Development Director, start working out new ideas for products, looking at culinary trends. An idea is formed and Kalani puts the wheels in motion, selecting the best essential oils and inclusions necessary to turn the already fabulous chocolate into a new flavor combination, and working with our Chief Chocolate Maker Rich to perfect that new flavor. Think Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, minus the Oompaloompas.
One of the fun things about working at Ticket Chocolate is sampling the test chocolate on these new product ideas. It’s always fun to come in to work and discover new flavors and Belgian chocolate combinations. Right now we’re testing out some new Artisan S’mores flavors for a possible spring line.
What type of Belgian chocolate products or flavor combination do you think would be good for our Hot Chocolate Sticks, Beloved Chocolate Bars or Artisan S’mores kits? Tell us your favorite combinations and we might give it a try!
