Valentine's Day Gift Idea - Luxury French Chocolates


Luxury French chocolates

Luxury French Chocolates
Dreamy, stunning, romantic -- World Champion, Pascal Caffet along with our other award winning master chocolatiers created this unique selection of chocolates with passion to beget passion. Colors, textures, flavors, and aromas coalesce in an entrancing assortment -- and the elegant hinged box lovingly conveys your feelings with a solid brass heart -- you can even add a brass plate boldly declaring your personal message -- eternally etched with a diamond.

The wooden box is entirely made by hand and has become a treasured keepsake in its own right - prized almost as much as the morsels initially housed. Each signature wooden box is made of Sapelli (a member of the mahogany family) and is assembled with 'finger joint' construction, a robust yet elegant assembly. The exterior of this warm-toned, tinted mahogany box is lovingly varnished to accentuate the wood's natural grain and hues.

Each of the 15 delectable gourmet chocolates within this collection is a hand-made creation from our four award-winning chocolatiers. Savor an amazing variety of pralinés and Caramel truffles; discover sublimely flavored chocolates hinting of orange essence, ripe raspberries, wild blackberry, Bourbon vanilla, star anise, ginger-bread and even lavender-honey; all cloaked in rich dark chocolate or thickly dusted with pure pungent cocoa or encased in creamy milk chocolate.

Candy Wars iPhone App

tb-candywars.jpgApple rejected Catamount Software's "Dope Wars" app, rightfully so. So they changed the game to "Candy Wars." You can get the app in the App Store for $0.99. The game is bascially a role playing game, where you play the role of a drug...err...candy dealer.
