Nature’s Garden has unveiled Jacques Torres by Chocolate Orchard, a premier chocolate cluster in partnership with master chocolatier and pastry chef Jacques Torres.
Available at Costco for $9.49, these fruit and nut clusters combine Nature’s Garden’s premium fruits and nuts with Belgian chocolate from Torres, who is handcrafting each treat. Made with 60 percent Belgian dark chocolate and no artificial flavoring or chemicals, the product includes dried cranberries, cacao nibs, roasted slivered almonds, pistachios and antioxidant fruit bites.
“Jacques Torres is the best chocolatier in the world,” said Sarp Tuncay, head of marketing and ecommerce for Nature’s Garden and Chocolate Orchard brands. “He was the obvious choice for us when we started exploring our first premium dark chocolate product. The dark chocolate clusters are all created in the Jacques Torres factory in New York, by Torres himself. With the health benefits of dark chocolate, nuts and fruit, it is in keeping with our Nature’s Garden mission.”
Torres specializes in fresh, handcrafted chocolates using premium ingredients free of preservatives and artificial flavors. From sourcing the perfect cacao beans to techniques steeped in tradition, he combines genuine passion with handcrafted mastery to produce real chocolate.
“My motto is ‘real is my promise to you,’ and I extend that into everything I do,” Torres said. “Nature’s Garden shares my commitment to quality, fresh products. Together we have mastered guilt-free indulgence.”
