Chicago-based luxury chocolatier, Vosges Haut-Chocolat has released a range of innovative flavors inspired by the Hunger Games, blockbuster sci-fi hit. Launched to coincide with the highly anticipated silver screen sequel “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” the new ranges from $225 for a box of Hunger Games truffles dubbed The Capitol to $5 chocolate bars created to represent some of the different districts of the dystopian state.
For mining District 12 for example, there’s a dark chocolate bar with mined sea salt, while for livestock District 10, there’s a milk chocolate bar with beef jerky and smoked mesquite. The District bars are part of Vosges’ more mass Wild Ophelia line and available nationwide at Walgreens and Safeway stores, as well as local retailers.
Vosges founder Katrina Markoff said representatives from Lionsgate approached her about designing chocolates themed for the movie. She created 33 recipes in four months and produced 500,000 bars for the film’s release.
