As a person who is passionate about design and food, I am thrilled to try products of Tales Chocolate .
The chocolate bars of Tales are designed to tell a story of Stockholm’s districts such as Gamla Stan, Södermalm, Djurgården, Archipelago with a sculptural map on the bar itself, but also through the flavours and taste experience. So they appeal not only to the eyes but also to the palate. The flavors were unlike anything else.
Tales chocolate is perfect for anyone who loves good quality vegan chocolate .
As most of you know I am a true raw chocolate lover. But I appreciate design-focus products and will continue to support these vegan products made with clean ingredients and a careful process in Sweden.
Below you will find the lingonberry cheesecake recipe I made with Tales Chocolate lingonberry blush.
They also won the Swedish design award in 2019. I must say that their packages are also very stylish and attractive. Whether it’s for yourself or as a gift for your loved ones, you should definitely try it.
They’re sold at selected Designtorget stores and Moderna Museet in Stockholm and they also have an online shop with worldwide shipping option, in case you yourself would like a small piece of Stockholm! Check their website if you want to purchase.
