Train Launches Charity Chocolates
Train frontman Patrick Monahan is a chocolate lover and longtime fan of Ghirardelli. After expressing his dream of a specialty chocolate with the acclaimed brand, Ghirardelli reached out to him and the “Save Me, San Francisco Chocolate” was born. 100% of Train’s proceeds from the first production of the chocolate will go to the local Family House charity, which assists families of seriously ill children with housing.
“Life is sweet! We honor our San Francisco roots and help a great Bay Area charity (Family House) at the same time,” says Monahan. "Partnering with Ghirardelli on the “Save Me, San Francisco” Chocolate is a dream come true that tastes incredible."
There are three premium chocolate bars available:
- Dark Cabernet – The creamy mouthfeel of this smooth-melting dark chocolate complements the notes of ripe blackberries, finishing with the delightful essence of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
- Sea Salt Almond – This slightly sweeter dark chocolate is blended with coarse crystals of sea salt, delivering savory peaks of saltiness. Slow-roasted almonds add a familiar nutty texture, completing the symphony of salty and sweet flavors.
- 72% Cacao Dark Chocolate – This slow-melting, pure dark chocolate is highly aromatic, with mocha, blackberry and dark cherry notes throughout. With 72% cacao, the intense chocolate flavor is highlighted by the silky smooth texture and creamy mouthfeel.
