It’s all about balance.
As a chocolate company, we’re in the food business. And so we are always keeping an eye on current flavor trends. Sometimes we jump on board, sometimes we don’t. In general, Lake Champlain Chocolates is more about balanced flavor combinations rather than crazy flavor combinations (think mushrooms and chocolate).
Sometimes it seems like there is a race to see who can come up with the craziest chocolate combinations out there—but is that what people really want? Perhaps once…but in the end, I bet most of you will go back to your favorite milk caramel bar or dark chocolate almond bar.
We try to strike a balance (there’s that word again) between offering classic confections like our Almond Butter Crunch, Dark Raspberry Truffles and Peanut Butter Chocolates that our customers buy again and again, with some new and interesting flavors like the Grace Under Fire Bar, Organic Honey Fig and Mango Truffles and our Sea Salt Caramels– which I would argue is fast becoming an entry in the classic category.
What classics do you love? And what interesting flavor combinations have you tried? Or would like to see us try? Let us know!
