City Pulse

By Candice Sabatini

Chocolate. It’s what we love. And crave.

But we’re adults now and that cheap, waxy chocolate bar that made us happy decades ago now only satisfy’s a stroll down memory lane. Our sweet tooth is all grown up and demands better stuff……chocolate with integrity, chocolate made with only the finest ingredients, chocolate made by a true chocolatier, and chocolate that doesn’t have a shelf life into the next decade.

Welcome 2 Chicks with Chocolate, the chocolate company that’ll knock your stilettos off! Created and owned by a Mother/Daughter team, who have chocolate chef Patrick Coston creating exciting, but not ridiculous, flavors. You may know Patrick from The Food Network or Gourmet Magazine, and he was named one of the Top Ten Artisinal Chocolatiers by USA Today. Flavors include mouth dazzlers such as cognac ganache, champagne bon bons, white chocolate filled with strawberry ganache, and others.

Your senses will be teased and delighted by The Wine Collection which contains a Spicy Merlot bon bon that is a 38% milk chocolate shell filled with a chocolate ganache infused with merlot, cinnamon and orange with a tiny touch of black peppercorn on the finish. The second flavor, Cabernet Caramel, is a 58% dark chocolate shell that contains a blend of smooth caramel with a touch of wine and has a palette pleasing hint of salt on the finish. This ain’t your Grandma’s sampler!

The Wine Collection comes packaged in a fun and elegant looking bottle shaped box, which is placed in a reusable cloth wine bag. It’s a perfect gift for her or him. $39.95
