A Sizzling Combo of Ingredients: Introducing Cinnamon Sizzle
About this time last year, one of Purdys' longtime fans contacted us with an idea.Charleen, said fan, thought it would be "incredibly tasty" (her words) if we blended our famously creamy white chocolate with Cinnamon Hearts candy.She's right.Introducting Cinnamon Sizzle, white chocolate peppered with sizzling Cinnamon Hearts for a spicy sweetness that goes on and onnnn and onnnnnn.It turns out Cinnamon Hearts have actually been around for a while. There's a reference to "red cinnamon candies" in a recipe in the Evening Indepedent newspaper in Florida from 1929. Cinnamon Hearts, also known as Red Hots or by the generic name cinnamon imperials, were a huge favourite to use in applesauce recipes back in the day.It goes without saying (but we'll say it anyway) that Cinnamon Hearts have always been associated with Valentine's Day.And what better to pair with Cinnamon Hearts than our sweet, creamy white chocolate? Usually the sweetest of all chocolates, white chocolate is made from cocoa butter. In the process of chocolate-making, cocoa is separated into cocoa liquor (also known as cocoa mass or unsweetened chocolate) and cocoa butter. Milk and dark chocolates are made with cocoa liquor and cocoa butter but white chocolate is made with just cocoa butter.Go on, try this sweet & spicy pairing for Valentine's day with that special person in your life...if you can find it in your heart to share.

This just in: Maple Syrup is most recognizable Canadian symbol
Sorry Beavers, Justin Bieber and actors whose first name is Ryan, you just don’t make the cut. Maple Syrup is the most Canadian symbol out there.And as Canada’s chocolatier, you can bet we love creatively using maple syrup in our chocolates.Like our Brown Butter Maple Caramels.Or Mini Maple Caramels.Or Canadian Maple Toffee.Want the full list? Sure you do.There’s no official story on how or when maple syrup was first invented, but we can all agree that, like chocolate, it’s one of the sweetest inventions in the world. Historica Canada explains that early French settlers in Eastern Canada learned about maple sap from local First Nations People, and the process of making maple syrup is pretty straightforward and hasn’t changed. You boil maple sap in a pot until it’s reduced to a thick syrup.So there’s a little bit of Canadian history for you, just in time for you to win the Canada Day trivia game at your house.
