We’ve combined perfectly tart raspberry ice cream with the delicate snap of white chocolate curls to create our newest seasonal flavor — Raspberry White Chocolate. The core of the flavor is elegance — the natural flavor of real raspberry puree is accentuated by the richness of white chocolate for an unparalleled tasting experience.
Let's take a closer look:
ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS
Raspberries, known for both their flavor and beautiful color, are a springtime favorite around the world. Named after the nymph Ida of Greek mythology, who’s said to have invented the raspberry, Rubus Idaeus can be either red, purple, gold or black. We chose red raspberries for their even mix of sweetness and tartness. Each raspberry is made up of a hollow core surrounded by hundreds of “druplets,” each containing a seed. If you ever can’t tell the difference between black raspberries and blackberries, raspberries have a hollow core while blackberries have a center stem. Another tip — raspberries are one of the only fruits that don’t ripen after they’re picked. So some patience is required, but it’s so worth it!
We’ve combined raspberries with rich, sumptuous white chocolate curls. White chocolate was first developed in Switzerland in 1936, according to legend, as a way to use up extra milk fat that had been stockpiled for World War 1. Naturally, it became an instant hit. The key to white chocolate’s brilliant color is that, in contrast to dark and milk chocolate, white chocolate actually contains no cocoa solids, but relies on cocoa butter for its chocolate component. This, of course, has the added benefit of giving it it’s signature melt-in-your-mouth smooth taste.
This mochi is multi-faceted – the subdued profile of the raspberry ice cream is one that’s even parts sweet and tart. This complexity when combined with the white chocolate curls put it over the top– a pairing that oozes luxury and romance. Pair with a glass of rose Champagne for the ultimate indulgent dessert.
Whether it’s an unforgettable gift for that special someone, a thank you, or a well-deserved treat for yourself, Raspberry White Chocolate is a can’t-miss delight. It’s available online starting today or if you’re in New York City, you can pop by the Soho or Upper East Side shops to try it in person.
