When Atlanta-based brewery Wild Heaven asked if they could smoke Xocolatl's nibs for Gravitational Wave, their Russian Imperial Stout, they were stoked. And it got them thinking. What about creating a limited edition dark chocolate bar that would pair well with it and be a fun collaboration involving other Atlanta businesses—a ripple effect?
Inspired by the full-bodied stout full of dark fruit, raspberry & smoke, they went to Pine Street Market, one of our favorite butcheries, and asked them to smoke their nibs on applewood. We asked Atlanta olive oil purveyor, Strippaggio, to help us with some blood-orange-infused olive oil. Tossing on freeze-dried raspberries for good measure, the result was Ripple Effect, a sweet and savory bar full of serious smoke and hints of fruit.
While this bar was originally intended to be a single-run batch, it quickly became a customer favorite and then a winner of the 2019 Good Food Award. They knew they had to turn this fun collaboration into a regular, year-round flavor and hope it will continue to produce all sorts of other positive ripple effects.
