Announced this week, the results included a gold medal in the "Best Ingredient Combinations" category for hand-painted passionfruit bonbons made by Ex Voto Chocolates of Ventura, CA and a gold medal in the "Most Unique" category for wheatgrass-infused dark-chocolate truffles containing chia seeds, sunflower seeds, and dried apples, made by Delysia Chocolatier of Austin, TX.
Another gold medal in that same category went to soy, beet, and spinach-infused truffles made by Chip in a Bottle of New Haven, CT.
Endorfin, which uses coconut "mylk" and coconut sugar in its bean-to-bar creations, won a gold medal in the "Best Milk Chocolate" category for its Coconut Dream bar, a silver medal in that same category for its Ginger & Rose bar, and further silvers for those same bars in the "Best Flavored Chocolate" category.
