So, I have been starting my chocolate business very slowly (but surely). I have not even finished my packaging designs yet, but I just got a special order for 3 dozen chocolates! lol
Here is the story:
I am active duty in the Army Guard for Colorado. (kindof a cross between National Guard and Active Duty. I work full time.) Anyways, the Colorado Guard has a close relationship with the country of Jordan and they are going to be here for a conference.
The General of Colorado just happened to be in my office today (very rare) and I just HAPPENED to bring a tray of truffles I made in today. She tried them, she loved them, and she wants 3 dozen of them for this conference. (im pretty excited, its my first 'order'!!!)
So, I am going to donate them to the conference instead of charging them (seems like the right thing to do).
Here is the question:
Does anyone know anything about Jordanian food/chocolate/treats/spices or anything like that? I would REALLY like to make something creative that can somehow represent their culture. If there is a spice or inclusion or anything that you think would compliment the Jordanian pallate, I would love to use it. The plan is a standard milk or dark chocolate/heavy cream ganache dipped in either milk or dark Cacao-Barry couveture.
Any suggestions? And thanks in advance. Everyone on these forums is so creative and helpful all the time!
