Fabelle Elements have been created with 26 different unique ingredients sourced across from 7 different countries to delight the Indian chocolate connoisseur who seeks evolved chocolate experiences. Fabelle Ganache - velvety soft cubes of exotic cocoas delicately churned with butter & fresh cream, A Fabelle Ganache is a sheer masterpiece crafted with meticulous conching that brings out the most sensational flavors and aroma along with the melt-in-mouth experience. Fabelle As You Like It – personalized chocolate cup creations offering myriad possibilities of fillings and toppings, Fabelle Single Origin Cacoas – single origin bars, crafted using cocoa from 6 different countries (Madagascar, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Ecuador, Sao Tome and Ghana), each asserting its own distinct flavour and Fabelle Gianduja - recreation of an Italian delicacy from the Napoleon era fashioned with infusion of hazelnuts into rich, creamy milk chocolate.

ITC has set up a state of the art facility with best in class technology to manufacture Fabelle chocolates in India. ITC is sourcing impeccable single origin cocoas from the best cocoa growing regions in Africa and South America such as Madagascar, Ivory Coast, Venezuela, Saint Domingue and Sao Tome. The diversity of each country lends a unique magical taste and feel to the chocolates.

A Vanilla Cremeux bar with Saint-Domingue chocolate mousse has been crafted with a 70% single origin Saint-Domingue chocolate which has strong cocoa notes. Similarly, chocolates from Sao Tome have fruity and spicy under notes which have been used to craft the classic warm cocoa. It has been paired with Lankan cinnamon, black pepper, frosted with whipped cream and cocoa nibs.
I am not a fan of dark chocolates but The Fabelle Single Origin Cacaos made me fall in love with it, I surely can enjoy a bar with my coffee or with the prescribed drink mentioned in the box. Fabelle Ganache will always be my favorite and for a fun time, Fabelle As you like it can be enjoyed where you can create your own creations. Hazelnut lovers like me should not miss Fabelle Gianduja. I enjoyed n amazing creation by Fabelle Master Chocolateier Rashmi at ITC Windsor which had Madagascar chocolate and it was heavenly. So drop by at the nearest Fabelle outlet and enjoy these luxury chocolates, well you can gift some to me too ;)
