A Bit More on Byrne & Carlson - Pansy Bars!
I remembered I had some postcards from the lovely Portsmouth, New Hampshire chocolatier so I scanned them to share pictures of their decorated chocolate bars.
The first one pictures their "Mendiant Bar: Valhroha Equitoriale (55% cacao), an exceptional French chocolate made from South American beans, decorated with nuts, dried fruits and candied violets in the French tradition. Almond Bar: Semi-sweet Belgian chocolate decorated with fresh roasted almonds. Chuao Bar: Venezuelan extra bitter chocolate (70% cacao), sprinkled with crushed Venezuelan cacao beans. Named after the village in Venezuela well known for its cacao beans. Pansy Bar: Semi-sweet Belgian chocolate adorned with an edible crystallized pansy flower and mint leaf. A fine quality Belgian white chocolate with natural vanilla, is used to create the decorative stem design."
These next are Artisan Chocolate Bars featuring Seashell, Mediant, Ginger Gem, Violate, White Chocolate Pansy (again) and Dark Chocolate Pansy. Mmmm...
