Life is Too Short for Bad Chocolate
The idea of any it being “bad” may seem impossible. But if you've ever treated yourself to gourmet confections, then you know that not all chocolate is created equal.
Don't be tempted by the cheap knock-offs you find on grocery-store shelves. Those boxes may look good on the outside, but inside are dull, factory-made candies that are created from cheap, bulk ingredients.
If you want to experience the full richness, unlike anything you'd find in traditional shops, then you must be sure to buy from the right places. Here are some quick tips to follow:
➤ Always stick to specialty boutiques like Sucré, which is staffed by world-renowned pastry chefs and chocolatiers.
➤ Stay away from heavily discounted candies that are sold in bulk. This is typically a sign that the products are old and were probably created with low-grade ingredients.
➤ Shopping for someone special? Chocolate makes a great gift for anyone – but you can't skimp on quality! Treat them to gourmet delicacies that they will absolutely love.
➤ Mix it up! Don't be afraid to try something new and different. Instead of buying a box full of one type, experiment with assorted varieties.
Dark vs. Milk vs. White Chocolate
Everyone has their favorite. But in order to truly appreciate the various styles, it's important to understand the key differences between them.
- Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate is made with a higher concentration of cocoa solids mixed with sugar, cocoa butter and other ingredients such as milk and vanilla. A higher percentage of pure cocoa ingredients gives it a darker coloring and is typically a sign of richer, higher-quality product.
It is rich with antioxidants and other beneficial properties, which studies have shown to improve overall health and reduce the risk of heart attack.
- Milk Chocolate
Milk chocolate is created with additional milk in the form of milk powder, liquid milk or condensed milk. This gives it a sweeter taste than dark chocolate, because of a lower concentration of cocoa solids.
- White Chocolate
White chocolate contains no cocoa solids, but is made with similar mixtures of cocoa butter, sugar and milk. The lack of cocoa solids gives it the paler coloring and distinctive taste that's unique from dark.
Amazing Flavors Based on Local Favorites
If you crave all different types, then be sure to indulge in our mixed assortments containing a variety of unique flavors and styles.
Sucré artisan chocolates are made using the finest ingredients, highlighting many flavors that are local favorites in New Orleans, where our boutiques are based.
Here is just a tiny sampling of the many different flavors you'll find among our assorted delicacies:
➜ Meunière: Brown butter folded into white ganache encased in a fleur de lis.
➜ Blangé: A white ganache blended with bananas and rum.
