Dark Chocolate Devotion
With over 2 million residents, Houston isn’t only the largest city in the state of Texas--it’s the largest in the entire Southern United States. And while many people’s first impression of the city focuses on its famous Tex-Mex cuisine, staggering combination of heat and humidity, and historical ties to the Space Industry, Houston is actually one of the country’s most important cultural hubs. Boasting an active ballet, opera, symphony, and theatre scene, Houston is proud to host more performing arts seats than nearly any other city in the USA. It is also home to numerous museums, artisanal coffee shops, and a population with impressive upward mobility. These unexpectedly refined tastes are also reflected in an increasing preference for luxury chocolates, including those featuring less sugar and darker, more robust, chocolate flavors. zChocolat has built its reputation on delivering chocolates made with premium single-origin cocoas featuring intriguingly complex flavors and smooth finishes. Their 40% Ivory Coast milk chocolate is perfectly balanced with milk and sugar for a creamy, never too-sweet, taste, while their 70% Venezuelan dark chocolate brings a bright, pleasantly bitter flavor to any recipe. For those seeking something truly exceptional, extra dark 73% Bolivian chocolate adds hints of licorice and dried fruit to zChocolat’s most massive creations, including the astounding ¾-pound Large Z chocolate. No matter which couverture your recipient prefers, they’ll experience the best flavors of France without the interfering effects of preservatives and artificial ingredients.
