  • NY Fancy Food Show: Best Confection 2006

Rabitos Royale Dark Chocolate Fig Bonbons are an amazing product - perhaps our favorite chocolate creation from Spain. They have won immediate acclaim from our La Tienda community. But don’t take their word for it; when you try one we are confident that they will become a favorite of yours.

Raquel and Señador Valero conceived of this extraordinary treat while living among the fig trees of a small village in southwestern Spain. They select tender young figs from the neighboring groves and fill them with a mousse made of dark chocolate and a hint of brandy.

Each one is then hand dipped in even more rich dark chocolate! Finally each individual Rabito Bonbon is sealed in a foil envelope so that it will always taste as fresh as the day they were made.

The rich dark chocolate / brandy mousse nicely accents the delicate sweetness of the baby fig. It is an inspired juxtaposition of flavors.

It is a culinary masterpiece that earned the Best Confection in Show honor at the Fancy Food Show in New York – no mean accomplishment for the folks of a remote town in Extremadura! The Valero family knocked the socks off all the sophisticated big city confectioners!

A box of Rabitos makes an inspired alternative to the usual box of chocolates. What a wonderful way to eat a healthy fig! (A great rationalization when you reach for your third one!)

Rabitos are an unusually tasty gift for friends and family – and nice to have around for yourself.

Ingredients

Dried fig, liquid cream, glucose syrup, brandy liquor, chocolate.

  • Rinshin - Dec 30, 2009  
    "These are wonderful. Great to give and and to receive. I've been sending these as gifts to Japan and they love them. "
  • Billy - Dec 30, 2009  
    "These are good, but do not deserve 5 stars. I purchased them based on the ratings and was sadly disappointed. They're good, but not that good."
  • Wendy - Dec 22, 2009  
    "Oh my goodness...I received these as a gift from my husband and did not think that I would enjoy them. They are, quite simply, divine. I had no idea that the dark chocolate shell would be so delicate, that the fig would be so light, and that the liqueur filling could marry all the flavors together in such an organic way. Delightful!"
  • Sheila - Dec 21, 2009  
    "These are wonderful! You must try them-you'll wonder why you waited so long to order them."
  • Megan - Oct 26, 2009  
    "I've been a chocolate lover for years and this one takes the "cake". It's purely WONDERFUL!"
  • Joanne - Jul 6, 2009  
    "A very 'grown-up' dessert; hide this one from the kids and neighbors b/c this is a perfectly justified selfish indulgence. Each piece has so much flavor, you are satisfied to eat just one or two at a time."
  • Frank Legarreta - Jun 29, 2009  
    "Extravagant, mature combo. It is about the best chocolate dessert you can have."

May we suggest?
