Valentine’s Day Gift Released!

So, earlier this week I introduced the idea of a sassy chocolate bar.  You may recall the shock, awe, and absolute astonishment that our very own Sara underwent after tasting that bar.  Here is a photo reproduction of this event:

All kidding aside, this is an incredible bar.  Here is a little more about it:

Imagine the culmination of flavor that stems from blending only cacao, whole milk, organic cane sugar and a pinch of sea salt, but in just such a way that they end up tasting exactly like browned butter and sea-salted burnt caramel were mixed right into the refiners with the chocolate.

If your imagination is pretty accurate, your mouth is currently watering.

This is the flavor of our limited-edition Sweet & Sassy milk chocolate bar.  We’ve never tasted anything like it, and it is the perfect gift for the month of love!   Please note that there are only several hundred left before they’ll be all gone.

Here is the problem.

I forgot to tell you about something else important.

We have ALSO put together another special gift for Valentine’s Day, and by my count, there are still about 20 boxes of them left.  So, here is more about that too; the pièce de résistance:

bonbons

We have hand-crafted only a handful of these lovely gift boxes with red ribbon.  Each box contains:

  • 2 hand-painted blackberry port bonbons
  • 2 golden-flecked salted caramel ganache bonbons

These are all made in-house, from bean to bar to bonbon, which is quite rare and quite a feat.

Let me repeat that with a little more detail:

We source the cacao, hand-sort it, roast it, winnow it, create a special chocolate recipe that takes months to perfect, and then refine the beans, organic cane sugar and cocoa butter to make some of the finest chocolate imaginable.  ONLY THEN do we begin the process of hand-decorating and molding these little chocolate jewels, filled with house-made ganache so decadent that words can really not describe the experience.  This is bean-to-bar-to bonbon!

You can check them out here while they last.

I’d tell you to enjoy them, but that would be the understatement of the year.

Best,
