What’s better than a box of chocolate on Valentine’s Day? A surprise box (or two) of chocolates that arrive with the promise of more surprises yet to come.
The Peruvian Nacional Traditional Truffles
It just doesn’t get any better [...]
Bissinger’s Hand Painted Chocolate Turkey
Is it a good idea or a bad idea to have 3 pounds of chocolate in the house for Thanksgiving? If this were 3 pounds of dark chocolate, we probably wouldn’t have resisted the temptation of a hand painted chocolate [...]
Simple and delicious, put the freshest cashews together with soft, creamy caramel and milky dark chocolate. It’s a good thing we only bought one.
Chocolate Covered Praline Blob
We’re not big praline fans. It’s just too much sugar. What [...]
We both love caramel… especially when the sweetness of it is toned down.
Here, deep dark caramel has complex, malty notes from the chocolate stout. It works beautifully with the bitterness of the smoke. And, there’s this perfectly tiny touch of salt. That hint of salt works to [...]
Have you ever had a Crunchie bar?

Crema di Marroni, Chocolate Fig Jam, & Roasted Fava Beans
Roasted fava beans, you could say they’re a slightly nuttier, tastier big brother to the soy nut. These were roasted nicely and seasoned appropriately with salt. We’d definitely buy them again.
The fate of these two [...]
Quicos de Chocolate
Chocolate Corn Nuts
These large kernels of corn are fried, dipped in chocolate and dusted with cocoa. You might see these same kernels of deep-fried corn dusted with salt or chili powder at your local convenience store under the name [...]
Fresh Market’s Gianduia Bar ($3.49)
It shouldn’t be a surprise when an $8 chocolate bar is outstanding. On rare occasions, those $8 bars are surprisingly bad. But, that’s another story. On the other hand, it’s always extremely shocking to us when we find a 3.5 ounce bar for [...]
Dark Chocolate Sesame Brittle
Do you see that rectangular hunk of dark chocolate sesame brittle in the upper right hand corner?
In a word… genius. Love, love… LOVE IT!
The combination of dark chocolate, rich caramel and roasty, toasty sesame seeds might just turn [...]
