How long can the chocolate pralines keep? Louella chocolate pralines contains no preservatives and should be consumed and savoured within two weeks of purchase. The freshness and integrity of the premium ingredients will start to diminish thereafter. The pralines should be stored between 18 to 20 degrees Celsius in low humidity (60% and below) and away from strong odour. Avoid direct sunlight. What is the best way to store Louella Chocolate? The most convenient way to store the pralines would be to keep them in a wine fridge configured to the “red wine” setting. If kept in a refrigerator (0 to 4 degree Celsius), place package in two layers of plastic bags and close tightly. In order to experience the best texture and flavour, take out the wrapped package from the refrigerator at least 10 minutes before serving. This allows the chocolates to warm to 18 to 20 degrees Celsius while keeping condensation to a minimum on the chocolates. How are the chocolates delivered? We work with Cool TA-Q-BIN to ensure the chocolates are kept in a cool environment throughout its journey to you. There are white speckles on the chocolate! What are they? This is a condition known as sugar bloom. It affects only the aesthetics of the chocolate and will not affect the taste. The chocolate adopts a dull, tannish-white colour and feels gritty when touched. It is caused by the condensation of water vapour in the air on the chocolate surface when the chocolate is exposed to a sharp increase in ambient temperature. The water droplets dissolve the sugar in the chocolate, and when evaporated, leave behind tiny sugar crystals on the chocolate. I would like to purchase Louella Chocolate in bulk.
