Premium Chocolatiers, located along the beautiful Jersey Shore, started with the goal of offering the highest quality chocolates to those preferring to avoid products containing milk or nuts. Many people suffer from food allergies or are lactose intolerant. Vegetarians and Vegans often avoid products containing milk and many kosher consumers search out products with a pareve (non-dairy or meat- based) status. We are talking about real milk-like chocolates that are not easily discernible from the real thing as opposed to bittersweet, dark chocolates. Finding a suitable replacement for milk chocolate has always been quite challenging and perhaps never before accomplished. Nothing turned up when our people scoured the markets looking for anything that met our criteria. We next began searching out suppliers of non-dairy couvertures to produce our own dairy-free chocolates of high quality and beauty that would be comparable to milk chocolate, but we again came up empty. We could not find anything besides dark, bittersweet chocolates and chocolate coatings produced from shortenings and vegetables oils rather than real cocoa butter and cacao beans like chocolate should be. Not wanting to sacrifice in quality and taste, we finally chose the path of creating our own chocolate couvertures to use in crafting these gourmet and artisan delights.
Our chocolatiers experimented with various cacao beans in an effort to create this alternative to quality dairy chocolate. They roasted the beans and produced chocolate using the quality ingredients used in real chocolate and settled on soy as the milk substitute. After conching, refining, and tempering the chocolates, and with a lot of consumer feedback, we had what we were looking for--real pareve chocolate. These couvertures were then utilized to create the truffles that we enjoy so much, as well as all the other beautiful confections that you will find here. We think you will agree with us when you try them. This is an ongoing project and we aim to get better and closer to the real thing with every batch we produce. Who knows where this can lead?
Whether you are giving a gift for a birthday, anniversary or holiday, or just want to enjoy some delicious chocolates anytime, you have come to the right place. You can also get our signature pieces in bulk should you want to spice up your affair or event. Premium Chocolatiers - Never Compromise!
