Inclusions manufacturer Pecan Deluxe has recently announced the expansion of its product range with the addition of miniature chocolate turtles.
A new shape for 2020, these eye-catching sweet treats are inspired by the popular US chocolate shop classic ‘turtle candy’ and are set to become a firm favorite on UK production lines. These cute creations can be made in standard milk, white or dark chocolate or, for the ultimate melt-in-the-mouth experience, can be created from low-melt compounds of the same flavors, as well as a striking pastel pink option. Unlike the traditional American recipe containing pecans, no nuts are included, making them ideal for a wide range of non-allergenic applications, including bakery products, confectionery, desserts and ice creams.
The turtles can be produced as solid shapes or filled, with endless alternative flavor possibilities available from the food tailor including caramel, mango, raspberry, chocolate fudge or peanut butter flavored caramel. Bespoke fillings can also be created to meet specific customer requirements.
Liz Jones, commercial and development director at Pecan Deluxe explained: “The market for a variety of chocolate inclusions continues to grow, as adventurous customers seek to satisfy sweet cravings with moments of indulgence from premium desserts and other lines. We’re responding to that demand by creating inventive inclusions that are as endearing to the eye as they are pleasing to the palate – and the speed with which these turtles have made it to market certainly makes them a very standout species!”
Pecan Deluxe says more shapes are expected to hit production in the future.
