Tastemaker Review: Recchiuti Confections

0191

You can not get more gourmet than Recchiuti.  My friends over at FoodBuzz have outdone themselves once again, providing me with another product that I love more and more every time I indulge.  Hailing from San Francisco, owner, entrepreneur, and true chocolatier, Michael Recchiuti has created a product unlike anything I’ve ever tasted, and I have reason to believe that the incredibly addictive Asphalt Jungle Mix from his Dragee line is only the tip of the iceberg.

0221An unbelievably satisfying snack of balanced salty sweet nuggets and chewy, melty, and crunchy textures, it meets every demand of the tastebuds with smooth panacea and elegance.  My favorite are the burnt caramel hazelnuts and almonds.  The burnt caramel itself is a signature of Recchiuti.  From the first taste of these nuts, I was intrigued.  I couldn’t quite put my finger on what made them so delightful, but  after a quick visit to Recchiuti.com, it all made sense.  That perfect balance of salty sweetness came from the alluring flavor of delicately burnt caramel mixing with gently roasted nuts.  I couldn’t ask for anything more in a chocolatey treat, but Recchiuti has lots more to offer and for such an upscale, high-quality product, the prices aren’t too bad either.  The Dragees run at only 12 dollars for a 6 ounce box.  In fact, I may even order one of their many other selections.  Who could resist such innovative flavors as Rose Caramel, Bergamot Tea, and Tarragon Grapefruit?  Not me that’s for sure!  And, don’t even get me started on how badly I want to try their brownies!  I’ll be sure to let you know if I do.
