Wild Ophelia’s Valentine’s Day hearts are filled with gooey carmel chocolate bites. The Tart Cherry Caramle Milk Chocolate bites are addicting. The Montmorency tart cherries come from the King Orchards family farm in Central Lake, Michigan. The carmel they used is made in house. Milk chocolate encases the cherries and carmel. Yes, it is as good as it sounds. My favorite is the New England Style Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Bites. Coastal Maine sea salt is dried in the sun and then hand-smoked over hickory wood under precise temperatures. The salt balances out the homemade caramel that in encased in a chocolate shell. Yes, this too is as good as it sounds!

If you need a great Valentine’s Day gift, Wild Ophelia chocolate is exactly what you need!

Wild Ophelia is a chocolate brand that features all natural and often organic ingredients sourced from small farms and food artisans. Their chocolate bars tell the American story. Wild Ophelia’s goal is to bring unconventional American inspired chocolate creations mainstream and revolutize the chocolate aisle. Their motto is “respect oneself, one’s food, and others, while relishing in the chocolate tasting experience.”

So onto the chocolate:

Southern Hibiscus Peach – is made from 41% cacao.  These fragrant, tangy peaches and puckering, tart hibicus flowers mingle in the southern tradition of tart and sweet.  There is definitely a peach zing aftertaste.  I found it light, airy, and sweet.

Peanut Butter & Banana – is a sweet, mild flavored banana with a honeyed smell, blended with peanut butter and milk chocolate.  If you love peanut butter, you will love this milk chocolate bar.  It also gluten free!

Beef Jerky – is natural smoked fruit woods and peppered spices perfectly matched to their rich, milk chocolate.  We found this definitely had a jerky in it!  We also thought it was very smoky flavored also.   This too is gluten free!

New Orleans Chili – is dark chocolate with a warm, zinging hot spice and underlying tones of earthy red pepper.  This is gluten free.  However, this chocolate is HOT, HOT, HOT.  I was shocked that my mouth was on fire after eating chocolate.  LOL

We totally loved all these uniquly flavored chocolate here!
