With a new month, comes a new giveaway!  

This June be the lucky winner of a Chocolate Gift Package stuffed to the brim courtesy of Hagensborg Chocolates! 
(Value $80.00) 



Check out the bottom of this post for contest details.  

Not only are these chocolates delicious, we love the packaging and the story behind the idea of pigs to represent the Hagensborg chocolate line.

At Hagensborg, we believe in the magic of chocolate. We believe we are sweetening the world by making an emotional connection with everyone who enjoys our products. Hagensborg is committed to inviting all to be part of the fairytale of life, through childlike simplicity, playfulness, quality, authenticity, warmth and love.  

Why Pigs?
If I only had a dollar for every time somebody asked me why we put “PIGS” on our chocolate bars I would be a very wealthy lady!
The truth of the matter is quite simple. We produce high quality All Natural European chocolate truffles. When we decided to create a chocolate bar we researched where the word truffle originated from and learned everything there is to know about the subject. What we learned is that truffles are a rare mushroom found in the forest, also called the diamond of the kitchen. To find these unique delicacies pigs were used because they have an innate ability to sniff out these exotic treats.
Understanding that chocolate truffles and truffles have nothing in common we decided to bring these two ideas together, thus creating “The Truffle Pig”.

Something we learned while researching for this post is that just like a wine connoisseur can taste the wines of varied regions, Chocolate is assessed in this same way and referred to as Single origin Chocolates.

What is Single Origin Chocolate?: Single-origin chocolates are purer and less processed, so you’ll get the flavors that these respective countries’ cocoa beans intended. Choose from:

  • Ecuador 39% milk chocolate
  • Santo Domingo 70% dark chocolate
  • Madagascar 64% dark chocolate. 

Hagensborg's cute truffle pig mascot combined with these chocolate bars’ jungle origins inspired the Wild Boar name, and three voracious cartoon boars adorn the colorful packaging. These pure chocolates allow more subtle tastes to come through, such as fruit and creaminess in the Ecuador bar, acidity and red fruits in the Madagascar and strong cocoa in the Santo Domingo.
