In this new series, we want to shed some insights on how and why we created some of our beloved flavours. In today's article, we like to share the inspirational story behind what made us want to create our Rose & Almond protein bar. This article was written by Xena, the creator behind this flavour.
Among all the flowers, roses are one of my favourites. They are beautifully delicate and radiate of positive feelings. Most of us tend to immediately think of the seductive red roses which stand as a symbol of love and passion. But my favourite, and the inspiration behind our nougat, is an equally beautiful, yet less known rose called 'Many Happy Returns'. These beautiful roses grow large clusters of gorgeous semi-double blush pink flowers and blossom continuously throughout the summer.
A budding rose to me meant the first sign of the glorious summer is yet to arrive. Roses are romantic, delicate yet strong, resilient and beautiful which is what I see in all women. We stand tall and beautiful whatever the weather may be!
When I created this flavour, I didn’t want the rose flavour to be overpowering or to resemble anything like a typical rose perfume. Very much like 'Many Happy Returns', I wanted the flavour to be subtle yet elegant, not too dominant or too fragrant. What I wanted to do instead, is to capture the exquisite sweet notes that a rose naturally brings to a dessert.
We combined our delicate, light rose nougat texture with fruity cranberries, nutty chia seeds and crunchy oven roasted almonds - often referred to the king of nuts. The result is a beautifully light, yet fruity protein nougat with a great crunchy texture. To many happy returns!
