We love chocolate...dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate with nuts, chocolate-covered salted caramels, chocolae ganache....well, you get the picture.
Since chocolate is a whole food (I'm not sure whether this is fact or fiction, but I choose to believe it) we should feel virtuous in a daily indulgence. Dark chocolate in fact, is good for our heart !
Every year, in addition to stocking up on our old favorites like Maison Bouche, I try to introduce a new chocolate company in my shop. Most often it is one of the "top 10" chocolates of the year as touted by the New York Times.
This year's introduction is the famed New Orleans chocolate company, Sucré. The confections, which melt in your mouth, have such names as Avery Caramel Chocolate Ganache, Meunière Brown Butter Chocolate Ganache, Wedding Cake Toasted Almond White Chocolate Ganache, Hazelnut Cream Semi-sweet Chocolate Ganache, Rhum Bittersweet Ganache with Spiced and Dark Rum and Sicillian Pistachio and White Chocolate Ganache.
These fabulous yummies are nestled in chic boxes perfect for hostess presents.
In addition to the boxed chocolates, we are also carrying 3 sizes of adorable pink paper purses that hold delicious dark chocolate squares.
We have been selling a lot of them as an extra goodie to tie on the outside of a present.
They are also popular as favors for luncheons and we can have them drop-shipped to your door no matter where you live !
Sucré's Master Chocolatier also creates the most delectable macarons. The flavors in their sampler box are devine: Chocolate, Hazelnut, Almond, Pistachio, Bananas Foster, Strawberry, Pecan and Salted Caramel.
Since macarons have a short shelf life, we only have a sample box in our candy counter and we order them for your special event. You can order mixed flavors or all one flavor. Specialty macarons are created for each holiday as well.
Our shelves are stocked for the season (for now, at least). Living above the store does have its advantages !
