UK start-up WNWN (pronounced ‘win-win’) Food Labs, which makes cocoa-free chocolate, is offering its version of a chocolate and hazelnut gianduja in partnership with Milan-based luxury gift service DLISH.
Gianduja is a Northern Italian confection considered a progenitor of Nutella. DLISH’s limited-production offers include either Cognac produced by Bourgoin Cognac ($180) or Nc’nean Organic Whisky ($195).
To develop its cocoa-free chocolate, WNWN applies traditional fermentation techniques to plant-based ingredients such as barley and carob.
“Chocolate feels even more extravagant when paired with hazelnuts, so combining our cocoa-free chocolate with Italian hazelnuts makes perfect sense,” said WNWN CEO Ahrum Pak. “We were thrilled to work with DLISH because of its focus on not only design and luxury, but also its interest in sustainable and artisanal products.”
