Chocolate Information


STORAGE + CARE

  • Store in a cool, dry place, away from heating elements and/or direct sunlight.
  • Do not refrigerate.
  • If wrapped airtight, they may be refrigerated or frozen to extend their shelf life but to avoid condensation (which could alter the appearance and flavor of the chocolate candies), please remove the sealed items from cold storage for at least 12 hours and allow them to return to room temperature before breaking the airtight seal. Please note: Our J. Rieger & Co. Chocolate Shots can NOT be frozen.
  • Our luxury products are perishable with a limited shelf life because we use only the freshest ingredients in everything we produce, with no additives or preservatives.
  • You will find a sticker on the bottom of each box that indicates the date by which each product should be consumed. Please note: Our truffles are made with real butter and cream so their shelf life is limited to only a few weeks. 

 

OUR CHOCOLATE

 What makes Swiss chocolate special? Its smooth and creamy texture is the result of extended ‘conching’ which acts to evenly distribute cocoa butter within the chocolate while promoting flavor development through frictional heat, oxidation and the release of volatiles and acids. The prolonged conching in our milk chocolate caramelizes the sugars, giving the chocolate a distinct caramel taste. In the darker chocolate, it helps to highlight the cocoa notes, creating a rich yet balanced flavor profile. 

We work with partners who carefully select the best beans from around the world. Our partners work directly with cocoa farmers to ensure safe, fair and sustainable trading practices. The cocoa in our signature dark chocolate and single origin flavors is non-GMO, fairly-traded, ethically-sourced and sustainably-grown. Our confiseurs expertly blend the beans to produce chocolate products that showcase exceptional flavor and texture in every bar, candy, truffle or other confection that we create. When you take a bite of our chocolate, you can taste the difference.

As we take each step in the chocolate making process seriously, from the cocoa plantation to your taste buds, we strive to maintain the highest of standards in all of our processes from start to finish. Our proprietary blends of Swiss chocolate enable you to savour the balanced, subtle and delicate flavor. Whether its creamy milk chocolate or rich, dark chocolate, we create our products from the finest raw materials with a dedication to quality, innovation and tradition.
