Some may have seen our offer of Sabadi Chocolate from Modica a few days ago, which is an incredible Sicilian Chocolate producer that we are featuring. Sabadi makes these fantastic little single-serving spoons for Italian hot chocolate, which is denser and more decadent than American style and perfect for the gourmet palate. This is also more savory, just like their chocolate bars, made with the same high-quality Organic Modica Dark Chocolate that melts into a velvety warm drink perfect for a chilly winter's night and can be sweetened to your taste. One of the best hot chocolates you can get, and one of the first times they have been available to purchase outside of Italy. We have the only single-serving spoons here in the USA, which is a fun holiday gift and an easy add on for those already shipping.

Our Original Offer:
Sabadi is an exceptional Chocolate producer from Modica Sicily, an area gaining popularity for the unique cold processing technique that is the signature from this part of Italy. Sabadi is the top producer of Chocolate in Modica and for the last nine years been awarded Italy's "Tavoletta d'Oro," which is like winning an Oscar for Italian chocolate. The Aztecs inspired chocolate from Modica, and it was the Spanish that brought back techniques they learned while in Mexico and taught the Sicilians, making it what it is today. This process is the basis for Modica Chocolate, where traditional round volcanic stones are heated over a small fire. The chocolate is rolled and pressed on the volcanic stone into a rough paste until it reaches about 100F and is considered an ancient way of cold processing chocolate. Since the chocolate is worked at a low temperature, the cacao and sugar don't fully melt, developing the signature Modica texture that is more crunchy, wafer-like, and very satisfying to chew. The chocolate also retains more of its nutritional properties that are usually cooked out during processing, like antioxidants. Sabadi has unrivaled purity in their chocolate, showing red fruits, spice, and a savory, earthy characteristic with just the right amount of sweetness that plays to the bar's natural bitterness. A lot of Modica chocolate is used in many savory dishes, locally making its way onto salads, believe it or not, but we prefer to enjoy it as is. Sabadi is the best in Modica, and this chocolate is a historic and unique way to enjoy one of the world's most favorite sweets.
