Curiously sweet tasty flames from Little Bird

Another great find at this year’s Fancy Food Show – Little Bird Curious Confections of Long Island City, New York. This award-winning chocolate with candied jalapenos is unique, deliciously super-hot and sweet. I started with the milk chocolate-covered jalapenos.

spicOnce owner Sara Meyer (pictured) determined for sure that I had survived that experience, I was promoted to the candied jalapenos realm. Yes, my mouth was in flames — but the good kind of flames. I like it hot, and am usually disappointed by packaging that touts “hotness” as a selling point. But not Little Bird. Woo-wee! Sizzlin’!

It all started when Sara made some chocolate-covered candied orange peels as a treat for her husband. They turned out so munchably great that she was inspired to try candying all kinds of things… but the candied jalapenos proved to be the showstopper, and Little Bird was born.

Now they produce (along with the original candied jalapenos), chocolate-covered candied jalapenos (milk, dark and white) and dark chocolate bark with crushed candied jalapenos. I saw on their Instagram @LittleBirdChoc an intriguing Jalapeno Simple Syrup too.

Little Bird has won several Scovie Awards (Scovies are for the best fiery foods in the world!) for their products and packaging. Buy their products at Amazon Little Bird Chocolates as well as several stores across the U.S. Retailers can purchase in bulk on their site also. Little Bird Chocolates on Facebook
