Exquisite chocolates made with passion, pride and creativity
- Open a bar or box of Maurie's Fine Chocolates
- Begin by snapping the chocolate in half. Inhale and ponder the lovely aromas you can sense: cocoa, vanilla, sweetness,
- Let the first bite be small to “warm up” the tongue, which can taste only sweet, sour, salty, bitter. Some chocolates can hit all four tastes.
- The second bite is the one that counts. Suck on the chocolate and feel how it melts, sense the texture (grainy or smooth?). Is it sweet or dry?
- Don’t rush on to the next bit. Enjoy the aftertaste—good chocolate will offer new and subtle flavors after a few seconds.
- Whether eating truffles or bars, always start with softer flavors and move slowly up to stronger varieties.
- Don’t ever eat more than four or five different kinds of chocolate at a time. You will overwhelm your sense of taste and ruin the experience.
- For our rich chocolates or truffles, don’t taste more than two in one sitting.
- Cleanse your palate with water before and in between each new variety that you taste
