A mixture of heat and spice for the adventurous palate, this box combines our Chile Caramels and our World Spice Pralines collections. 

Chile Caramel Collection

The Chile Caramel collection is for lovers of fine caramel that want to flirt with real pepper flavors and heat. That’s not to say these don’t bring the heat; you can’t put Ghost or Carolina Reaper peppers into anything without making it HOT. But these caramels are a lovely exploration of how capsaicinoids and casein can come together to smooth the build of the heat out, allowing the fruity, earthy, citrus, and floral flavors of the peppers showcased here to shine. 

Each pepper boasts unique and specific flavors that you’ll be able to fully enjoy in these pieces-- yes, even the hottest of the hot. Join the few culinarily curious chocolate connoisseurs who can say they know what a Carolina Reaper pepper tastes like (before its ripping heat gets you). 

World Spice Praline Collection

If you’re like us, you love to travel.  And if you’re even more like us, the best thing about traveling is diving into another cuisine while immersing yourself in the color, music, history, and art of another culture.

Prepare your culinary passport for a new type of world tour. This collection globe-trots in the most delicious way, celebrating iconic spice blends from around the world.

These spice blends each have deep roots, with modern nuances and evolutions that naturally result simply from existing for such long swaths of history. The variations we’ve blended for this collection nod respectfully to the deep impact spices have had on our world, from sparking curiosity and exploration to driving shifting economic tectonics. These blends pay homage to the cultures and places from whence they hail, built from a combination of culinary memory and scrupulous research. 

The spices we use are arguably the best in the world, sourced from single-origins by our friends at Burlap and Barrel.  The Vietnamese royal cinnamon is impossibly sweet and fragrant.  The Turkish flowering hyssop thyme is floral and herbaceous. The Guatemalan green cardamom is sweet and tart.  The Indonesian fermented white pepper is fresh and spicy.  The flavors you’ll find in this collection are without peer, meant to coax your imagination to their distant, exotic homelands.

Each praline is enrobed in our signature 70% dark chocolate and finished with a scene evoking life in its country or region of origin.
