Our classic caramel infused with orange blossom water to create a smooth intense and sweet citrus flavor that pairs well with the rich buttery flavor of the caramel. Orange blossom water is produced, by distilling water that is infused with crushed orange blossoms. Used extensively in Mediterranean dishes, orange blossom water is quickly becoming a foodie favorite here in America. The caramels are then bathed in a 55% dark chocolate couverture and finished with a little Hawaiian Black Lava salt.
Health benefits from chocolate? Studies show that confections containing dark chocolate are a rich source of the flavonoids epicatechin and gallic acid, which contain cardio protective properties. These same flavonoids prevent excessive clumping together of blood platelets that can cause blood clots. Furthermore, the saturated fats found in 55% dark chocolate do not elevate the body’s cholesterol levels and the amino acid arginine, which is required for the production of nitric oxide, is found in abundance in 55% dark chocolate. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to dilate, which helps to regulate blood flow, inflammation, and blood pressure.
Hawaiian Black Lava Salt
This salt is a blend of sea salt and purified volcanic charcoal. It is evaporated in above ground pools that formed naturally from lava flows. Activated charcoal is added for color and its detoxifying effects. Hawaiian black lava salt contains many trace minerals that are essential to the human body. Some of these minerals include calcium, boron, fluoride, iron, magnesium, potassium and sodium.
