Bring Vosges With You To Catching Fire



Here at Con Sweet Con we are fans of EVERYTHING! Two big things on our list happen to be chocolate and movies. So when we caught wind of Vosges Hunger Games Collection, well it’s pretty much a match made in heaven. Vosges creates chocolate masterpieces, these aren’t your typical candy store treats.

The Hunger Games collection is found in Vosges stores and online at their site. They sell separate themed bars for $7.50 each and have three character themed flavors available: President Snow, Effie & Katniss. 

The President Snow bar features blood orange & tellicherry peppercorns caramel + 72% cacao dark chocolate.

Succumb to this caramel-filled dark chocolate bar, inspired by the Capitol's most notorious villain – President Snow. The tart and bitter puree of blood orange is infused into a rich, lavish caramel, bursting forth from each bite of dark chocolate casing. Freshly milled tellicherry peppercorn texturize the molten caramel, creating a surge of black spice upon your tongue...a bittersweet luxury. Image and Caption from Vosges

The Effie bar features dried strawberries + candied violet flowers + 62% cacao dark chocolate.

The savory taste of uncured, hickory wood smoked bacon provides a mouth-watering backdrop to this deep milk chocolate bar, enhanced by alderwood smoked sea salt and softened by the tart hint of apples.

None of these really calling your name, well Vosges is Haut Chocolate so they know your diva self needs choices and that's not a bad thing. How about truffles? Is that more "you"? I can testify to the amazingness that is their Exotic Truffle line. Curry and chocolate changed me as a person. Not to mention the Wasabi truffle... earth to me. Back to the Hunger Games Truffle Collection.

What I love about this collection is the ability to split this set pretty much down the middle with a friend. Each truffle is offered twice in the collection so there will be no real life Hunger Games fighting over a flavor. Plus with flavors like Evergreen (Rosemary, Pink Peppercorn & White Chocolate) it's safer to make sure everyone is covered. So even though the Hunger Games Truffle Collection's $45 price tag may shock you at first, let's split that because I promise these are so luxurious 8 will be plenty. 

Now let's really indulge... like Capitol style pinkies up! Never in my life have I ever seen something so indulgent. Only the likes of Vosges could think of such an event. Yes, an event. The Hunger Games Capitol Truffle Collection contains a menu of etiquette. You heard me. Along with 36 truffles, accoutrements, and recipes to serve an extravagant 18 course chocolate tasting. It includes ingredients such as matcha tea, gold leaf, and pearl dust to create Hunger Games drinks. I think the only word for this is "Amazing". The Hunger Games Capitol Truffle Collection Experience is $225. The Hunger Games Chocolate site includes a walk through of all 18 courses here.

A ritual of degustation, this truffle collection is curated to guide your palate through opulence and ritual. The 18 different truffles in sets of two are an exploration of shape, texture, color and flavor. Rosemary with a touch of pink peppercorn is encased in pure, white chocolate. Coconut and banana are combined with dark chocolate and rolled in coconut charcoal ash. Candied walnuts and milk chocolate are thick and chunky, rolled in cocoa powder– to name a few...
