The debut of the company's latest product line, which was handcrafted by Matt Peterson, Jushi’s director of manufacturing and Bravo’s Top Chef: Just Desserts finalist, in concert with Jushi’s product development team, marks its entrance into the cannabis-infused chocolates market.
“Made using just a handful of ingredients you can easily pronounce in our state-of-the-art kitchen by an award-winning chef, Tasteology Chocolates represent the culmination of extensive consumer research into taste and demonstrate our ongoing commitment to developing products that not only meet the diverse needs of consumers, but are also delicious,” said Jim Cacioppo, CEO, chairman and founder of Jushi Holdings.
Crafted from gourmet Valrhona chocolate, Tasteology Chocolates will be available in four flavors: Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Mint, and Strawberry Blonde Chocolate. These 18-piece bars, which are easily separable for accurate dosing, contain 90 mg THC per bar (5 mg per piece).
The chocolates are also 100% Fair Trade and USDA Organic Certified, using beans that have been sourced only from suppliers that embrace agroforestry and adhere to a strict charter that was designed to protect labor rights, biodiversity and food safety.
“Sourcing the best ingredients was simply a no-brainer for us,” Petersen said. “So many edibles on the market today simply aren’t appealing to the palate. With Tasteology Chocolates, we were determined to bring consumers products containing all-natural ingredients, no preservatives, and some of the best cocoa you can buy.”
Tasteology Chocolates are available for purchase at Nature’s Remedy dispensaries in Tyngsborough and Millbury, Massachusetts, and will continue to roll out to partner dispensaries across the Commonwealth in the coming weeks. The new line is also expected to launch in Virginia in the first quarter of 2023.
