Go Ahead, Make Her Day


It wouldn't be Valentine's Day without chocolate. But add honey to that chocolate and this cozy little holiday becomes unforgettable. We suggest marrying our single varietal raw honeys with the bold, single estate & single-origin chocolate from Mast Brothers. Handcrafted in Brooklyn, these chocolates are made from the finest cacao in the world. We sat down with Mast Brothers and did a tasting exploratory and we were all amazed at how the honeys and chocolates melded to bring out the hidden and unexpected flavor notes in each other. Like any great couple, we are wonderful on our own, and we make each other even better.

Here are the first two perfect pairings: 

Colorado Sweet Yellow Clover Honey and Madagascar Dark Chocolate
This organic cacao is sourced from a single farm in Madagascar’s northwest coast. With notes of blood orange, raspberry and red wine, Madagascar is heavenly when paired with our Sweet Yellow Clover. The bright and bittersweet chocolate beautifully complements this raw honey’s notes of butter, cinnamon and cardamom, creating a hedonistic indulgence just begging to be shared.

Maine Wild Raspberry Honey and Papua New Guinea Dark Chocolate
While light and floral, our Wild Raspberry Raw Honey also has a natural whisper of cocoa butter. This honey provides the perfect feminine counterpoint to the bold Papua New Guinea dark chocolate with notes of hickory smoked bacon and aged scotch. The combination is incendiary, creating an explosion of raspberry at the finish. 

So passionate!—Zeke
