The herb and berries, used to make the chocolate tablets, are hand picked, close to Elsa’s home. Sea salt is imported from Saltverk in Reykjanes, just 115 kilometres to the East of Súðavík.
Not only the collecting, but all other steps in the process are done by her hands. Crafting the filling of the little chocolates, filling up the forms, decorating and wrapping the final product.
But the most important step in the whole creation, is Elsa’s imagination. Going there where no one has gone before. Bringing the art of chocolate making together with the gifts and beauty of the Icelandic land.
Each of her main chocolate bars are wrapped with a colour, representing an aspect of the taste pallet.
Blue for the sea, wrapped around a chocolate bar, only slightly salted with ecologically harvested sea salt.
Purple for the blue berries (bláber), which can be picked in Iceland from August to mid-September.
Green for the pumpkinseeds, giving a nutty flavour to combine with the sweet of the chocolate and the salt of the sea.
Orange for cinnamon, a autumn combination.
Red for goij berries and at last, yellow for happiness. This special chocolate will be crafted for Aldrei For Eg Sudur, a rock festival at Ísafjörður during Easter.
Next to the chocolate bars, Elsa also makes a variety of little chocolates and truffles. Alike the bars, there are filled with a combination of sweet, salt and a unique combination of fruit, seeds, nuts and herbs. Wild thyme, spicy peppers, bláber, cinnamon, caramel, baileys and goij berries to name a few. Needless to say, that the taste of each and every of her creations is on point. Sweet and yet salty. The saltiness in each chocolate, bringing out the flavours even more.
