In celebration of the Year of the Dragon, we collaborated with Kasama Chocolate to bring you this special chocolate bar made with a biscuit inspired by a childhood hot ginger drink with smoked longan drink made by Olivia’s mom – Mama Wu in Taiwan.
Longan (龍眼), also known as “Dragon’s Eye”, is a tropical fruit found throughout Asia and is prized for its sweet flesh and floral aroma, similar to that of lychee. When de-shelled, the fruit resembles the eye of a dragon. The longan used in the biscuit were sourced directly from Dongshan (東山) district in Tainan, Taiwan where they are kiln roasted and smoked for several days. Soaked in Shaoxing wine, longan is combined with ginger and freshly cracked black peppercorn.
Bits of Buzzed Ginger Longan biscuit are sprinkled into a 55% dark milk chocolate made with cacao from Davao de Oro and infused with Philippine dalandan resulting in a creamy chocolate bar with a crunchy, layered texture and notes of citrus, ginger, smoke and pepper.
Ingredients: Cacao, organic unrefined cane sugar, organic cacao butter, milk powder, Dalandan oil, earth kiln dried smoked longan, Shaoxing wine, unbleached flour, ground ginger, allspice, black peppercorn, butter, molasses, sugar, egg, baking soda, kosher salt.
