The ultimate chocolate gift this festive season is The Golden Pod, from Willie’s Cacao. As much art as chocolate, this artist sculpted cacao pod tin comes filled to the brim with the most indulgent Sea Salt Caramel Black Pearls – pearls of single estate Madagascan dark chocolate filled with molten sea salt caramel.
Whether you’re looking for a super luxurious stocking filler, something indulgent to share with your family or an unusual surprise gift, The Golden Pod is the perfect answer. The Golden Pod tin is the first in a collectible series of life size cacao pods from Willie’s Cacao. Wonderfully organic and tactile, it opens with a champagne-like pop to reveal heaps of individually wrapped Sea Salt Caramel Black Pearls. Crack through the fruity, Madagascan 71 dark chocolate shell of these rare and precious pearls, into cascades of molten caramel with flakes of Cornish sea salt riding the waves.
The Golden Pod captures the essence of Willie’s Cacao. The pod itself represents the fact that ‘bean to bar’ pioneer Willie Harcourt-Cooze make all his chocolate from the bean. It is all about purity of flavour with the only ingredients being cacao, raw cane sugar and natural cocoa butter – no vanilla or soya lecithin . The tin is a piece of art in its own right, cast from a cacao pod sculpted in clay rather than being computer designed, it is in tune with the artisan nature of the chocolate, in which the use of hundred year old traditional chocolate making machines is still key. Willie also makes the caramel himself -caramelising raw cane sugar, clarifying the butter and adding Devon double cream.
In the season of indulgence, The Golden Pod is the ultimate chocolate discovery gift – the finest quality chocolates beautifully presented in a golden cacao pod tin that will be treasured forever.Sydney Unleashed is one of Australia’s premier entertainment publications exploring the latest in lifestyle trends.
