50Hertz x Neococoa collaboration: Green Sichuan Pepper Toffee Nib Brittle

Our Green Sichuan Pepper Toffee Nib Brittle will be handcrafted in small batches by the good people at Neococoa. Many of you have tried our green Sichuan pepper in the past and are familiar with its notes of lime zest. Now imagine that citrusy tingle highlighting the sweetness of Neococoa's dark, buttery toffee. Thinly layered between dark milk chocolate, you'll be able to experience this buzzy, crispy, brittle of adventure. 


1. Sichuan pepper has zero heat and is not spicy at all! People confuse it because it is often paired with chili peppers and chili is the one that brings the heat

2. Sichuan pepper is not a pepper, it belongs to the citrus family 

3. Sichuan “peppercorn” is a common misnomer because these dried Sichuan peppers are not peppercorn. They’re the dried husk of the Sichuan pepper berry. A sign of superior quality is the lack of black seeds. 

4. Sichuan pepper is not just from Sichuan, but from a collection of places in southwestern China: Chongqing, Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu, etc. 

5. We believe that the correct name for it is actually Flower Pepper which is a direct translation from the chinese term hua jiao.

Damn that’s a great toffee tingle!!

I had to struggle to preserve just 3 tiny pieces for my housemate to sample; it was that delicious.


Chocolate and brittle delicious together but with pepper it’s magnificent!
