My friends bday gift of white chocolate was loved!!
I've tried a lot of white chocolates in my day, including stellar bars made as far away as New Zealand and Iceland. This Castronovo White Chocolate with Lemon Oil and Lemon Sea Salt (made in Stuart Florida) would EASILY be on my top five favorite white chocolate list (if I had such a list). (I seriously think it might even be at the top of the list.) Creamy, lemony, with glimmery crystals of lemon infused salt (from Sicilia, no less). If there's a fan club devoted to this bar, sign me up. :-)

Castronovo was started by Denise Castronovo in Stuart, Florida. While Castronovo was only launched in 2013, Denise has made some strikingly different and exceptional chocolate that has won over twenty awards both nationally and internationally. Denise is the only woman-owned bean to bar chocolate company in the U.S that has won an award from the International Chocolate Awards! Denise picks heirloom varieties of cacao from remote regions that help to conserve the rainforest and highlight the exclusive flavors from those regions. Castronovo also ensures that the beans she uses come from plantations that naturally exist in the wild, or from small farms that practice sustainable farming. Denise is there every step of the way to ensure not only quality chocolate bars but ensuring that even the beans are carefully looked after. Castronovo decided to get into the chocolate making business after her original career as an ecologist and owning her own company that uses mapping technology to look at satellite imagery for ecological health slowed down in 2008. She purchased a bag of cacao beans, when it dawned on her that, that was the first time she realized where chocolate comes from. Actually, her own bars from her first batch was the first bean to bar chocolate she’s ever had! And the rest is history.
Collection title: Chocolate with Salt
Collection description: Why is salt in chocolate so good? Salt is an inspired and natural pairing to chocolate (and sugar). Salt intensifies your body’s ability to taste sugar, and it also suppresses the bitterness of chocolate. Not to mention it also enhances the many flavor nuances found in single origin chocolate.
