Zotter opens this season with 9 new, Hand-scooped Chocolates: variations of tender-melting Choco Mousse, new Wine flavours, and more. Moreover, our focus this season is nuts – a current culinary trend. There are nutty new highlights sprinkled all over our range: Hand-scooped Chocolates with Marzipan and Almonds, homemade Pine Nut Marzipan and Chestnut + Cranberry. In the Zotter Labooko range, we present 3 new varieties amongst which the mythical Maya Cacao and eco-conscious flavours made with cacao grown and harvested in nature reserves, or – like our Belize cacao – shipped to Zotter via an actual sailboat.
Hand-scooped – the original
Hand-scooped is a mixture of inventiveness and manual work. The Handscooped Chocolates are filled chocolates. The fillings are spread in layers on long tracks. During this process up to 6 different layers are combined and coated all around with chocolate. By combining different ingredients such as marzipan and cherry brandy, something new is created all the time – ideally a flavour explosion. Thanks to the wonderful compositions of taste and their unique design the Hand-scooped Chocolates have turned into a cult.

Labooko – Pure Chocolate Variety
The Labooko range features fine flavour cacao from the best cacao growing regions in the world. Each chocolate contains a rare cacao variety with a vivid history, from the Maya cacao grown in Belize and Guatemala to Dominican cacao harvested in a nature reserve. Cacao is a tool for environmental conservation, it thrives as a mixed crop and in the middle of the rain forest, and it also safeguards the traditional life of indigenous people as well as guaranteeing a decent income for them. Alongside the sublime chocolates, there are colourful fruit bars – their stunning hues and delicious flavours derived entirely naturally from fruit alone – and to top it off there’s a huge selection of vegan chocolate creations.

Mountain Milk Chocolate filled with Muscaris white wine ganache and raisins

The vineyards are part of the Edible Zoo and are located in the Sennkogel and Edelsgraben region. Pressed at the renowned Silberberg Academy of Viticulture, the wine flows into a chocolate ganache made from white chocolate, a touch of caramel couverture, a bit of grappa and refreshing verjus. Added to that are some boozy raisins that have previously taken a bath in the white wine, as well as a coat of sweet milk chocolate with a 40% cacao content.
