Five Distinct Flavors

Swedish Lingonberries

Mårtensson's Swedish Lingonberries Bonbon honors the small, bright-red berry that is a staple in Swedish kitchens with a velvety ganache of lingonberries, cream, and our fudgy 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate.

Morello Cherry

A classic pairing of morello cherries and our 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate, Mårtensson’s rich, tart-yet-sweet ganache-filled truffle has a firm, chewy texture.

Rosehip Ganache with a Cardamom Crunch

Mårtensson explores the slightly floral flavor of rosehips with a caramel-and-rosehip ganache, accented by an aromatic hint of cardamom, and a snappy outer shell made from our classically chocolatey 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate.

Salted Raspberry
Rosemary Caramel

Mårtensson fills a thin layer of our rich 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate with a liquid interior that balances sweet, fruity raspberries with an herbaceous, slightly savory touch of rosemary salt.

Black Currant, Cloudberry, & Crushed Almond

This truffle features two sought-after Swedish berries. The deep, complex flavors of black currants mingle with tart, creamy cloudberries in a silky filling that Mårtensson coats with crushed almonds for subtle crunch, then enrobes in 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate.
