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

Our Green Sichuan Pepper Toffee Nib Chocolate Brittle is handcrafted in small batches by our brilliant partners at NeoCocoa. Imagine the zesty lime and citrusy tingle of our green Sichuan pepper mingling with NeoCocoa's dark, buttery toffee. Thinly layered between dark milk chocolate, your mouth will delight in this buzzy and crispy brittle of adventure. 

Infusing the captivating aroma and tingling sensation of Sichuan pepper into a variety of food and drink, and thereby showing its versatility and delightfulness, is our mission. Creating a craveable and delicious Sichuan pepper confectionery product has been our dream. We met Christine Doerr, founder of NeoCocoa, in early 2023. We worked with her on the recipe through several iterations from February to July, and launched the test batch in October when the weather cooled down. It was an instant hit! Based on the enthusiastic response and feedback, we have brought back Green Sichuan Pepper Toffee Nib Chocolate Brittlewith updated packaging and in two different sizes (3oz and 8oz)!


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.

Deliciously rich and tingly

An absolutely delightful treat. The toffee is perfect (layers of rich flavor) topped with smooth chocolate. The peppers add a surprising but delicious tingle and citrus notes that stay with you and you savor the lingering caramel flavor.

What a treat!

Talk about good! This is such a special treat, I am rationing them. I was trying to lose some weight, but I have been thinking that I will wait until this bag is gone, right now I'm just rationing the contents of my bag. Thank you so much for this wonderful treat.

My husband can’t get enough of these.

As Sichuan cuisine fans after living in China for seven years, we thought we’d hit the jackpot with the Tingly Peanuts. Well, we feel the same about the Green Sichuan Pepper Toffee Nib Chocolate Brittle! My husband thinks he likes the brittle even more than the nuts. “These are the bomb!” I’m torn - I love them both.
