Christmas came early to the chocolatiers at She Universe…
This year we entered 3 of our chocolate creations to the NZ Chocolate Awards - and all 3 won Gold!
We are very grateful and so delighted to share these with you.
Christmas Whiskey Fruitcake - Gold 🥇
Our Christmas Whiskey Fruitcake has always been an absolute favourite amongst our customers and the judges agree - here's what they had to say:
Christmas in a chocolate! Excellent temper and good developed flavour with many fine components.
Lovely Christmas notes resembling the context of panefort with its nuttiness.
Complex mix of ingredients expertly melded. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would certainly buy it. We loved the gentle hand applied to the use of the whiskey too. Had the WOW factor.
Decadent Drinking Chocolate - Gold 🥇
One of our recent Pacific inspired creations, the Decadent Drinking Chocolate also named the Best Pacific Inspired Hot Chocolate at the Pacific Cacao & Chocolate Awards 2022 has taken Gold again.
This win is very special for us, honouring the amazing work of Solomon Island cacao farmers and enters a whole new realm of drinking chocolate - made with Single origin cacao beans, raw organic sugar and a touch of coconut - enjoyed equally with water or your choice of milk.
From the judges:
Good aroma with a balanced flavour.
Very smooth, silky and creamy on the palate.
We enjoyed the hint of coconut. Optimal particle size. A very enjoyable hot chocolate.
Cardamon & Coffee Vegan Milk Bar - Gold 🥇
Beautiful concept with great depth and complexity. Very well balanced flavours.
Our new Cardamon & Coffee bar will be released online mid-November and we can't wait for you to try it.
Congratulations to all participants and all the award-winning chocolatiers! What a wonderful way to enter the festive season.
