Come taste Chocolate as it has evolved through the ages

Drinking Chocolate Sample Pack

This is a sample pack of all 5 flavors in our line of Drinking Chocolates, which are a rich
and authentic homage to how the ancient world used to enjoy Cacao.
Chocolate has been prepared as a beverage for as long as it has
been around, solid candies and bars are relatively new. We have put
together a line of Drinking Chocolates that tell the story of Chocolate
from its humble beginnings with the Mayans and Aztecs, through the
changes affected by the European Conquistadors, to its current
versions in modern-day México and America. Come and
experience a hot cup of Cocoa like you’ve never had before!

Mixing Directions

Let's Make Some Cocoa!

For the Conquistador, Méxicano, and Peppermint Cocoa:

These Cocoas are meant to be prepared with 10 ounces of hot milk and apx 5-6 tablespoons of cocoa powder. How much cocoa you like in your cup will be personal preference, but we feel it is best at 5-6 Tablespoons per 10 ounces of milk. Best prepared if you mix the cocoa and milk together in a saucepan and heat it up quickly on medium heat, stirring vigorously to incorporate all the cocoa completely. Simmer for a couple of minutes longer once it starts to bubble, stirring often, and then pour into a coffee mug. If making a larger batch you may need to add 1-2 ounces of extra milk to account for evaporation or if your simmer became a boil.

For the Azteca and Americano:

These Cocoas are meant to be prepared with 10 ounces of hot water and apx 5-6 tablespoons of cocoa powder. How much cocoa you like in your cup will be personal preference, but we feel it is best at 5-6 Tablespoons per 10 ounces of water. Best prepared if you mix the cocoa and water together in a saucepan and heat the water up quickly on medium heat, stirring vigorously to incorporate all the cocoa completely. Simmer for a couple of minutes longer once it starts to bubble, stirring often, and then pour into a coffee mug. If making a larger batch you may need to add 1-2 ounces of extra water to account for evaporation or if your simmer became a boil.


All of our products come vacuum sealed in a non-reactive and food safe Mylar bag with a tamper evident and heat sealed tear away strip. The Mylar bag features a reusable zipper closure for ease of use and storage which eliminates needing to transfer the product to another container. These bags are light, oxygen, and odor blocking for maximum protection from environmental factors that cause oxidation and rapid aging of volatile oils and flavor compounds. All of our products are sealed in these Mylar bags the day they are batched to ensure the best preservation of freshness and quality possible. Each product will also contain a 3-gram silica gel Tyvek desiccant packet to help absorb any moisture and oxygen in the bag over the course of its use. The desiccant packets are FDA approved as pharmaceutical/food grade and 100% non-toxic. We strongly encourage you to press all air out of the bag after each use before zipping close and to store bags in a cool place away from direct sunlight or any heat sources, such as an oven or microwave.

Quality

-This is what we believe in, it’s why we are here-

                        In this industry, all the big players in the market have to produce at such large volumes in order to be able to anticipate the demand of the market that product is often stockpiled and sitting around waiting for distribution. “It’ll always be available and it’s always on the shelf” is something you can count on. The downside is that when you go shopping and buy a jar of seasoning from any major brand in a grocery store the odds are very high that the product you picked up was produced a long, long time ago in a factory far away.

             I think we can all relate to what an old can of coffee grounds or a week old bottle of wine tastes like after it has been sitting around too long. It may have been good, even great, once… but time ages everyone and everything, sometimes for better, but usually for worse.

           Quality and Freshness are the primary goals that we at Rae&Ryan’s Gourmet Foods are looking to excel at, well besides creating new and unique flavors that will knock your socks off! We do not subscribe to the concept of compromising quality for the gains of quantity. We are not trying to make the fastest buck possible and get out before it all falls apart. We are working every day to create a brand you can trust and rely on to be the best and never compromise.

            That sounds good and well, but what does that actually mean you say? Well that means that we are as close to the source of the ingredients as possible so we know how old they are. A select few ingredients we grow ourselves here at the homestead and it doesn’t get fresher than that. The rest we source fresh/raw and organic as much as possible which gets processed and dried on site. The ingredients we can’t grow or source fresh we source already dried from only the highest of high quality suppliers who also believe in our philosophy of quality over quantity.

           What this means for you as the consumer is that you are guaranteed to receive product that was produced within the last month or less, often less. Some of our less common products or large volume orders are made to order and shipped within three days. When you open a vacuum sealed pouch of seasoning from Rae&Ryan’s your nose will know that what you hold in your hand has not been sitting in a hot factory, a flatbed truck or some lonely shelf for months or years. Your taste buds will confirm that what you have is the freshest and most potent seasoning available, short of going to your Grandma’s house.

            Stale and bland food doesn’t make any more sense than carrying a dull pocket knife or walking around with your shoe laces untied. I think we can all agree that:

Life’s too Short for Flavorless Food!
