I love the choices in the sampler which includes my favorite Force Noir, but did not recognize the sur de lago truffle. It would be helpful to note them in the label or include insert. Small box which includes the red wine tasting chocolates would be a great addition as small gifts.
The chocolates were gifts for Valentine’s Day. I bought them as a recommendation from the NYT. I also included a box for myself. The chocolates themselves were exquisite. I loved them. The small boxes they came in didn’t do them justice. For myself it was fine. But as gifts to friends and teachers the boxes didn’t match the quality of the chocolates. The bigger boxes of chocolates might have nicer boxes. I’ll definitely get them for myself again.
As a San Francisco-based chocolatier, we're often asked what the best way is to show people our incredible city. One of our favorites is through our partnership with Creativity Explored. Burnt Caramel Truffles take you on a tour of our city's most iconic sights including Cupid's Span, Ferry Building Marketplace, SFMOMA, and the Transamerica Building. This box is perfect for bringing the spirit of San Francisco into any home.

If Junior Mints (Michael Recchiuti's favorite 'candy' growing up!) or Peppermint Patties have been the guilty pleasures of your past, then you'll love our Peppermint Thins. Made with organic mint from the Willamette valley and enrobed in our custom blend of 64% semisweet chocolate, this peppermint confection elevates the best of your favorite childhood candies into a more nuanced delight.
"When he [father-in-law] received the package, he was of course excited, but as soon as he tried the Peppermint Thins he Facetimed me right away to let me know they were the best mint chocolate anything he had ever had. It was exactly the right kind of chocolate, the right amount of mind, the right consistency of filling, everything."
A little salty, a little sweet, a whole lot of crunch and snap! Recchiuti's take on a traditional European confection. Our custom semisweet chocolate blend is topped with caramelized cacao nibs and finished with a touch of fleur de sel, all add up to a delightful contemporary twist on this French classic!
"Every piece has a beautiful texture and intense flavor."
