Buying cheap chocolates: Their value.

Buying cheap chocolate depends largely on chocolate prices and the units you want to buy. Therefore, one bag is not the same as 5 boxes. There is a pack to save a little money.

The value of chocolate is established on the basis of the price of cocoa beans, its main raw material. Some can be between €50 per kilo and others can reach over €90.

The origin of cocoa dates back to the discovery of America, since in Europe there was no plant from which to extract the fruit. Gradually he joined the kitchen. At first, chocolate was bitter, then it was sweetened with sugar until it became what it is today.

Another important aspect is the stock. If a large quantity is produced in a short time and stored, it is possible to reduce the cost of production. This is one thing we never do.

Finally, the price of chocolate varies depending on whether it is mixed with any other raw material, such as almonds, hazelnuts, macadamias or sugar. A cheap chocolate usually has a lot of sugar.

What is the ideal temperature for preserving chocolate?

The ideal temperature for keeping chocolate should be between 16 Cº and 20 Cº. A temperature close to room temperature. The important thing is that there are no sudden temperature changes. Established brands such as Nestlé are well aware of this.

In this company we have a special warehouse for this type of products derived from cocoa and choco. This room maintains a temperature of exactly 18ºC throughout the year, guaranteeing a product in perfect condition at all times.

Chocolate shipments are always shipped in thick cardboard boxes that keep the chocolate and preserve it from sudden changes in temperature. The chocolates are shipped in such a way that they arrive in the best state of conservation. Even in summer.

When you receive bars of your favorite candy at home, you can store them perfectly in a cupboard.

Once shipped home, how do we keep it?

Buying chocolate is not always easy. Chocolate is a difficult product to keep all year round. Especially dark chocolate.

It must be understood that they are not treats to be eaten at untimely hours. Frequent temperature changes affect it, causing it to change its color and texture. This is one of the main reasons why we do not keep units in stock.

Chocolate should always be stored in a cool, dry place away from sunlight where the temperature is maintained. The changes between night and day, depending on the area of Spain, may be sufficient to change some properties of the product. This does not mean that it is bad, but its properties are affected and its color is not as dark or its flavor is less intense.

Buy chocolates for the kitchen

Buying chocolate for the kitchen is commonplace. All the chocolate we make can be used in recipes for toppings or cakes and even to prepare nuts with chocolate. You need to know that it is Chocolate Chocolate.

As it is very good, you will not need many grams to make chocolate snacks. All chocolate melts very well, both dark and white chocolate.
