A NEW DASH OF DECADENCE FOR THE BLOND® RANGE.
Totally natural Blond® color, biscuity notes reminiscent of DULCEY®, a characteristic flavor profile fusing freshness and indulgence with muscovado sugar. After creating the first Blond® chocolate, DULCEY® 32%, once again Valrhona breaks with convention on white chocolate by applying its full mastery of couverture to a new natural ingredient – muscovado sugar – to bring you a brand new flavor and color in the Gourmet Creations Range: ORELYS® 35%. It took four years of research and experimentation to pinpoint the ingredient behind ORELYS® Blond®'s unique flavor: dark muscovado sugar from Mauritius.
This natural sugar is made by crushing sugar cane and pressing it to obtain cane juice. The juice is then heated, dried and ground. Muscovado contains natural molasses, so it has a moist texture, brown color, and a faint aroma of licorice. Adding muscovado sugar to the ORELYS® 35% preparation results in its natural color with bronze flecks and characteristic licorice notes.
