The Oregon Orchard hazelnut chocolates range of confections are being launched by the Hazelnut Growers of Oregon (HGO) as a lineup of products that highlight the premium profile of the namesake nut.
The pouched confections will come in for flavor options including Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Marionberry Chocolate and Skinny Milk Chocolate (with 20% less chocolate). The products start off with premium hazelnuts that are then dipped in their respective chocolate before being packaged up in resealable six ounce pouches that are perfect for on-the-go consumption.
The Oregon Orchard hazelnut chocolates were boasted by Director of Marketing at Hazelnut Growers of Oregon Matt Gillespie who said, "Hazelnuts are usually less sweet than almonds or pecans; they tend to bring out a satisfying texture and “brown butter” flavor that is distinctive from the other nut varieties. Chocolatiers often take advantage of this distinction when using hazelnuts as a primary inclusion in their confection portfolio. Thanks to Oregon Orchard, consumers can now enjoy this unique flavor combination firsthand.”
