Alfreton, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 24, 2008 -- The premium chocolate box with an eclectic fusion of delectable flavours and luxurious ingredients from around the world, will be exclusively unveiled by Thorntons - the UK's number one confectionery Superbrand, in 20 of its stores around the UK this week (20th October).
This brand new luxury collection is an eclectic blend of hand finished, filled chocolates infused with flavours in the true style of fusion cuisine. Fusions is a premium, exclusive chocolate box for the discerning foodie.
The Fusions range combines innovative ingredients with real craftsmanship as the chocolates are hand finished by chocolatiers in Thorntons kitchen. The range includes 12 premium chocolates combining flavours such as cocoa & rosemary, smooth balsamic, caramel & soy and madagascan vanilla.
The diverse flavours in the centre of the chocolate really bring out the subtle notes of the single origin cocoa beans, which are some of the finest in the world sourced from Sao Tome, Papua New Guinea and Tanzania. For example, tangy Modena balsamic vinegar in an intense Ganache, highlights the fruity notes of the dark Tanzania chocolate. Fusions are truly sublime and these deliciously unique flavours provide a real taste sensation.
Thorntons new Master Chocolatier, Keith Hurdman says about Fusions: "I'm particularly excited about our new launch. With this new collection, we've been able to combine our chocolate expertise and passion with a real foodie creativity. We've brought wonderful ingredients like Modena balsamic vinegar, Tasmanian honey or soy together with specially selected single origin chocolates so that each one brings out a different note from the cocoa. This means that Fusions really do deliver an eclectic union of flavours.
"Fusions will offer our customers something totally different and allows us to demonstrate our credentials as not only a fine chocolatier but also as an innovator of luxury chocolate made using the finest ingredients from around the world."
