KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates Debuts Flavorful Line of Chocolate Bars

Available is six mouth-watering flavors, the line boasts a new size, improved flavor and new packaging

KOHLER, Wis., Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kohler Co., leading manufacturer of kitchen & bath plumbing products, is pleased to add to its successful line of KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates – the silky smooth Chocolate Bar Collection. The bars, now available as 1.5 ounce confections, make their debut at this year's Fancy Food Show in San Francisco and are offered in six delicious flavors: Milk and Dark Chocolate, Hazelnut Crunch, Mint, Cherry Almond and Peanut Butter.

The line of Chocolate Bars underwent a complete transformation, improving the recipes and packaging. The recipe for each Chocolate Bar was reviewed diligently while the staff worked tirelessly to create a memorable tasting experience. The Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar is one that Chocolatier Anette Righi DeFendi and her staff recall fondly as the research, trials and improvements made set the tone for how thoroughly each bar was approached.

The new Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar includes a filling of natural creamy peanut butter, a hint of sea salt and a dash of milk and dark chocolate – encased in a perfect blend of a milk chocolate shell. "Our goal with the new Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar was to find the perfect blend and balance of a rich and silky smooth filling that melts in your mouth," said DeFendi.

"We tried several versions of each Chocolate Bar until we found the perfect combination. We really aimed to 'set the bar' high with our versions and are excited to introduce these delicious chocolate bars to our consumers," DeFendi added. The Chocolate Bars are available year round and can be purchased online at www.KohlerChocolates.com or in Kohler at Craverie Chocolatier Cafe.

KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates are made at The American Club resort in Kohler, Wisconsin. The Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond resort, owned by Kohler Co., is home to world-renowned Championship golf courses, Forbes Five-Star Kohler Waters Spa, and artfully-crafted chocolates.

The Chocolate Bar joins an already lauded line of KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates that include a variety of tasty morsels including by not limited to:

  • Original Buttery Terrapins, Kohler Co's version of the turtle. Expertly crafted, these turtles are set apart from the ordinary offering the perfect blend of chocolate, salted pecans and smoky, burnt caramel. Also available in Blackstrap, Java and Cranberry.
  • Perfect as sparkling gems, Rare Facets are artfully-created to capture the complexity and beauty of 63% dark chocolate paired with flavors such as Pineapple, Sour Cherry, Cranberry-Raspberry, Blueberry, Mandarin Ginger and Pomegranate.
  • The Garden Ganache is the faultless chocolate for that person who truly appreciates a beautiful piece of art. Inspired by garden varietals, the colors of these hand-painted milk chocolates hint at their unique flavors – each elegant, artistic and delicious. The Garden Ganache top-selling flavors include: Raspberry, Creme Fraiche, Hazelnut Coffee and Passion Fruit.
  • The Platinum, a beautifully-crafted piece of edible artwork that contains one layer of homemade brown sugar caramel and a second layer of salted pecan praline, all wrapped in a 63 percent dark chocolate shell that is delicately air-brushed a brilliant platinum color.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
