New Chocolate Collections in

April 26, 2010

We’ve got some amazing new chocolate collections in the store. Just in time for Mother’s Day, of course, but really these chocolates would make fantastic gifts for any occasion. We work hard to find these unusual collections so that you don’t have to…

Salt Talks from Chocolat Moderne

First up: Salt Talks, from Joan Coukos at Chocolat Moderne. Joan’s chocolates have always been a store favorite, and we know that this collection will be no exception – how could it, when it has exquisitely-flavored salted caramels paired with white, milk and dark chocolate? There are sixteen pieces in each of the beautiful art-deco gift boxes. The dark chocolate shell holds their ever-popular salted espresso caramel, familiar to those of us who are addicted to their “Madame X-stasy” Bistro Bars. The milk chocolate shell contains a salted caramel finished with chopped pecans, and the caramel in the white chocolate shell is seasoned with sea salt that has been smoked over Welsh oak, giving it a truly unique smoky flavor. Salted caramel fans, rejoice!

William Dean Chocolates 10-Piece Collection

Next we’ve got an amazing ten-piece collection from William Dean Chocolates out of Largo, Florida. Bill Brown, William Dean’s chocolatier, has been wowing the Bay Area recently, picking up a ton of awards at this year’s Chocolate Salon at Fort Mason. If you didn’t get to try them there, or if you did and you want more, our store is now the place to get them. Chocolates simply do not get any more beautiful, or more delicious.

 Butter Cups from Ococoa Chocolates

Finally, we’ve found some wonderful new chocolates made by Ococoa in Los Angeles. They’re called Butter Cups, though butter in this case refers not to the dairy product but to various nut butters. Flavors included in this unique nine-piece gift box are: Classic Peanut Butter, Pistachio Date, Sesame Fig, Hazelnut Chocolate, Almond Cherry, Cashew Apricot, Marzipan Truffle, Macadamia Guava, and Sunflower Honey. In addition to being delicious, they also happen to be vegan – when was the last time you were able to give a gorgeous gift box of chocolates to someone who didn’t eat dairy? Of course, vegan or not, if you love dark chocolates, you will love Ococoa’s confections.
