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.
