A rarely seen specialty from Calabria. The Favella Masseria Ranch is located near Sibari in Southern Italy, which, if you’re up on ancient Greek history, you might recognize as the place where the Sybarites lived and ate famously well.
These clementines in chocolate fit right into the Sybarites’ hedonistic tradition: spectacular Calabrian oranges, soaked in a constantly refreshed bath of simple syrup for three weeks, cut in quarters, smothered in dark chocolate. Each piece is the size of a large chocolate truffle. If you slide it in your mouth all at once, the luscious orange syrup won’t drip down your chin. Better yet, be a Sybarite. Let it drip.
This year we've had some difficulties trying to get these clementines from the producer in Calabria to our warehouse in Ann Arbor, and at this point it looks like we may not receive any until early 2016. I know, we're bummed about it too. If you'd like to be the first to hear when they return, use the TELL ME WHEN IT'S BACK IN STOCK link below and we'll contact you the instant we get them!
