Ritual Chocolate is releasing four new chocolate bars, just in time for the fall season. Inspired by Utah’s impressive landscapes and flavors unique to the state, Ritual Chocolate’s new flavor profiles are a nod to the place they call home.
The four new flavors include Honeycomb Toffee, Juniper and Lavender Chocolate, Pine Nut Chocolate and S’mores. Each bar has its own unique feel and inspiration, highlighting the Utah landscape and it’s rich ingredients.
“We wanted to create a line of bars that was unique to our location,” said Anna Davies, co-owner of Ritual Chocolate. “We have been working on these flavors for some time so we are excited to have these out in the world for people to enjoy.”
Honeycomb Toffee takes Belize cacao and blends it with house-made honeycomb, using local Hollow Tree Honey which sources from hives across the Wasatch Mountain range. The Juniper and Lavender bar is inspired by the high mountain meadows, sourcing the lavender from local Lavender Hill farms. The Pine Nut bar combines Ritual’s dark chocolate with ground pine nuts inspired by the Pinyon pine woodlands in the Great Basin. Lastly, the S’mores bar, made with caramelized sugar, topped with graham cracker and reminiscent of a night spent camping in the mountains, is Ritual’s solution to a s’more without having to tow around the ingredients.
Founded in 2010 by Robbie Stout and Anna Davies, Ritual Chocolate has dedicated itself to providing sustainably-sourced, exceptional quality chocolate while celebrating the complexity of the cacao bean. Sourcing some of the highest quality cacao in the world to make their chocolate, each bar from Ritual represents an authentic expression of the flavor unique to each origin of the bean.
