Local’s Guide: September 2015
Caldera Mogli® Porter Truffle
Chocolatiers have traditionally used liqueurs to flavor truffles. At Branson’s Chocolates, our Raspberry Chambord, Grand Marnier, Crème de Menthe, Frangelico Hazelnut, and Disaronno Amaretto truffles have been with us since the beginning. Over the years we’ve added Pacific Rum, Patron Tequila, Brandy Peak’s Blackberry, and Pama Pomegranate truffles. In September we’re adding a new flavor that sure to become another favorite—the Caldera Mogli® Truffle. Caldera Brewing Company is a local Ashland brewery, well known for its ales and lagers. We’ve chosen their Caldera Mogli® Bourbon Oak-Aged Chocolate Imperial Porter. Caldera Brewing says, “This is a chocolate, bourbon, oak-aged Imperial Porter. Mogli® is complex, sweet, chocolatey, big, and full of unconditional love! Sure to warm your heart.” Destined to be used to flavor chocolate, we’ve made turned this local craft beer into a deeply delicious truffle using our rich 58% semi-sweet chocolate, and it has earned its place as the Product of the Month for September. Chocolate and beer, two of life’s tastiest pleasures, brought together for you by Branson’s Chocolates. Caldera Mogli® Truffles are the perfect treat for fall picnics, backyard BBQs, and football games. It’s a big win for everyone! Come on in and take home a box today.
