Some advice for the proper care and enjoyment of the chocolates

We make our chocolates following artisinal recipes using carefully selected raw materials. Our chocolate is guaranteed to be made with pure cocoa butter, and without the use of soy lecithin,dyes, preservatives or additives. As a result, our chocolates are fresh foods and must be cared for as such. We highly recommend that you enjoy the chocolates within two weeks of receipt to appreciate their freshness. Keep in a cool, dry place: 60-62°F (17-18 °C) is ideal but room temperature is suitable as well. It is best not to store the chocolates in the refrigerator/freezer, hot rooms or cars, in direct sunlight, etc.

We suggest that you keep the chocolates in a consistent temperature-controlled environment. Exposure to sudden varitaions in temperature or humidity may result in "blooming"- a separation of the cocoa butter from the cocoa mass that results in a whitening of the outer coating of the chocolate but that does not alter the taste of the chocolates at all.

Like fine wines, our chocolates should be tasted at room temperature for maximum enjoyment.When trying several at a time, we recommend a sip of water to cleanse the palate between each piece. For more information on chocolate tasting, please see our Three Rules of Tasting.
