Festive New Treats from KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates

Kohler Co. introduces a tempting trio of delicious chocolates – available only through the holidays

KOHLER, Wis.—November 18, 2013 — Kohler Co. celebrates the holidays in the most delectable way this year with a trio of new chocolates that will last only as long as the season. These latest confections from KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates deliver delicious flavors that embody the warmth of the season.

The Holiday Trio consists of three distinct chocolates: Cranberry Clove, a dark chocolate shell with a soft center that delights the taste buds with the flavors of cinnamon, cloves and cranberry juice; Carmel Apple, a milk chocolate shell surrounding a smoky, apple cider caramel; and Mint Leaf, a smooth ganache center flavored with natural peppermint extract surrounded by a milk chocolate shell. Each of these delicacies looks like a polished round bauble and is a different color of the season – glossy red, soft gold and pine green.

“We wanted it to look and feel like you were opening a box of beautiful, shiny ornaments,” said Anette Righi DeFendi, chocolatier for KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates. “I really wanted to tap into those universal childhood memories of the holidays through sight, taste and smell. Enjoying these chocolates is a sweet and nostalgic experience.”

The Holiday Trio makes a delicious hostess gift, stocking stuffer, or even a present for yourself and can be purchased online at www.KohlerChocolates.com or in Kohler at Craverie Chocolatier Café. They are available through the end of the year in 4-piece ($9.99), 9-piece ($18.99) and 32-piece ($59.99) boxes.
