Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Mother's Day Series that includes two chocolates each day. One sweeter chocolate (this post), and one on the darker side (separate post)--reflecting my Mother's love for sweet confections, and my love for darker chocolates.
Today's FrischSchoggi (Fresh Chocolate) Heart Strawberry-Curd chocolate was distributed by Läderach Chocolatier Suisse ("UK Lmted.") and produced in Switzerland.
Läderach premium chocolates are made from bean-to-bar in Switzerland, and the company has retail locations in U.S. cities, including a shop in Palo Alto, CA.
Today's attractively packaged confection (individually-wrapped heart in clear wrapper with a pink bow) was one of Läderach's featured heart-shaped items for Mother's Day (Sunday, May 8, 2022 in the U.S.).
The pretty blush-pink heart was topped with tiny red, pink and ivory rose-colored pieces.
The aroma for this chocolate: subtle sweet chocolate aroma with fruit (tart-sweet/tangy berry, strawberry), and vanilla notes.
This confection was a blend of satisfying creamy sweet and slightly crunchy (from crisped rice) texture and taste. A touch of cocoa powder added faint chocolate (think milky/creamy hot chocolate) flavor to this fruity and flavorful heart. (Note: This is not gluten-free.*)
