Good Price on Chocolate

Recommended Posts

Got a call today to say that the New World Chocolate that Tomric has had produced is going to be discontinued. It can be purchased for a very reasonable price from them.

While we are not talking Bonnet here, this is nice couverture chocolate in the belgian style and would be great to have around for making some basic items.

Let me know if you need to know who to contact there.

I'm not familiar with this chocolate Kerry, could you tell me more about it? Is it good eating/baking chocolate or more in the range of chocolate decoration that could but not likely would be eaten usage?


It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

I've already sent Kerry a PM, but I'm curious too. I would only be using it for baking, as a sub for my usual Callebaut.

It is a chocolate that would be suitable for molding, baking, ganaches to which you were going to add flavourings. At the price - you could use it for chocolate showpieces too. It's a good 'basic' chocolate, nothing startling in the flavour.

If I were going to make a bunch of chocolate suckers for halloween or bunnies for easter I wouldn't hesitate to use this chocolate.

Perfect for the buttercrunch.

I typed 'Kerry's Buttercrunch' into the eG search engine and got back more entries than I could deal with in a week.

Pray tell, what is Kerry's Buttercrunch and how do you make it? Thanks. :smile:

It's in the eGCI and should be in recipeGullet as well (but it seems to be down right now). Just search for buttercrunch - I don't think it's called 'Kerry's buttercrunch'.

The Recipe section should be back in operation soon and I'll get it then. Thanks. And thanks for always helping me navigate this amazing organization.

I only called it Kerry's Buttercrunch because she made it for/with me last year. :biggrin:

Kerry's Buttercrunch. Yummmm...

I see that the RecipeGullet is still not back up. Is there any chance that a kind soul will give me the buttercrunch recipe? Suddenly I have this urge for buttercrunch dipped in chocolate.

Thanks. :raz: (That's supposed to indicate 'yummy')

Hello Kerry, I would like to know the contact person for the chocolate. I like your suggestion for using it for such things as ganache. I have tried it at the trade show in Atlantic city and I found it rather bland in flavor. Thanks for letting us know about the chocolate being offered at a discontinued price.

:smile:

Hi Kerry

Its been awhile, but looks like I came back just in time for a deal!

I received samples of this chocolate after I attended a food show here, its funny they were still trying to market it.

I would also like some contact info if you don't mind.

Btw, saw the catalog with your DVD's in there, congrats!

Hey Mary,

I've PM'ed the information to you. Perhaps that was the show that convinced them it was time to unload chocolate - I don't know - I don't think people see it as their niche in the market - so I guess it was a really hard sell.

Have my DVD's finally made it into the Tomric catalogue? Woohoo!

      Hi All,
      I am an artist ( oil and pastels) by trade so the coloring of artisan chocolates really appeals to me. I was wondering if I could make my own colored cocoa butter using oil candy colors and cocoa butter, or is there more involved.
      Also, if I add the oil candy color to white chocolate will it affect the temper?
      Thanks,
      Mark

      Hi there, I’m looking for some interesting flavours for truffles. Any combination of filling and coating ideas? For lemon, dark ganache, orange and caramel example. 
      I also realised that when deciding to use ready made truffle shells filling needs to have a creamy texture. Any advice on this?

      Hello! 
       
      I am doing some spring cleaning and am selling some of my used polycarbonate molds. I've attached pictures and dimensions below.  The mold prices do not include shipping fee. I will ship these via USPS priority mail. 
       
      For estimation purposes only, 4 - 5 molds can fit in a medium box and it costs $15.05 to ship. Please let me know if you have any questions.  
       
      Thank you. 
      Charlotte W.

      I am wishing to purchase some black cocao butter, but it is scarcer than hobby-horse sh*te here in the UK. I do have some cocao butter, and some black fat-soluble powder. Tips and tricks for the making of black cocao butter at home would be most welcome...
