This constant concern guarantees you a concentrate of natural flavors in every bite...
A balanced snack for delicious snacking
Snacking is an art. It is not about taking the first food from the pantry... A snack should combine flavors and dietary balance. It is important that this moment is also a way to treat yourself. For this, add some nuts to your chocolate tablet or bar: hazelnuts, walnuts, chia or pumpkin seeds, pecans... Don't forget that five fruits and vegetables are recommended daily! For this, opt for a few slices of fresh fruit to go with your chocolate. Thus, strengthen the note of citrus, ripe fruit or red fruits of a chocolate.
To make your break a recreational moment, have fun with small sensory games. For example, test the combinations between fruits and chocolates! Accompany your snacking tablets with a different tea every day to find the best pairing... Note how the flavors respond to each other and how they strengthen or oppose each other.
Be aware of your senses!
Texture, melting, crunchiness are all sensations to be experienced. Try to detect the aromas specific to each chocolate. First, search generally: fruits, flowers, roasted notes, spices... Then, let memories come to you during your snacking to identify more precisely the perceived aroma.
Finally, know how to step out of your comfort zone and let yourself be surprised by trying chocolates that you consume less. Valrhona-chocolate.com offers you a wide range of snacking. Vary the pleasures by going from milk chocolate to dark chocolate, white chocolate to blonde chocolate.

Chocolate & Dried Fruit Alliance
The alliance between dried fruit and chocolate has long been recognized. It even gave birth, several centuries ago, to Gianduja, the delicious hazelnut chocolate. This same alliance is employed in Valrhona's Equinoxe gift boxes. Designed not to melt on touch but in the mouth, these chocolate-coated dried fruits combine crunchiness and creaminess.
