Easter is fast approaching and chocolatiers are hopping around like bunnies to create delectable decadence for chocolate lovers like you. Inside every adult is a child whose eyes open wide in awe and yummy desire when seeing chocolate bunnies, truffles and Easter eggs. But what fun would Easter be if you couldn’t share these delectables with someone you love?
This is where zChocolat comes in! Well known for their handmade French chocolate creations by none other than the world-champion chocolatier, Pascal Caffet who prides in the tradition of using all fresh high-quality ingredients from Europe. Very rare to find chocolates made with no preservatives. Their collections are made with dark, milk and white chocolates from Venezuela and the Ivory Coast filled with their signature rich ganaches. So rich and smooth you can feel the decadence melt in your mouth.
I had the pleasure to try their Easter Duo collection – fun assortment of truffles and solids. Their truffles consist of white, milk and dark chocolates filled with caramelized hazelnut ganaches in whimsical shapes of bunnies, Easter eggs, chickens and chicks. The solid collection also of white, milk and dark were in the shapes from the ocean – seashells, crabs, carps, oysters, mussels and fish.
Why the sea inspiration? I too wondered myself and found this on their website http://www.zchocolat.com/egg-chic-easter. Or read below an excerpt for the reason why:
“Symbol of the Christian faith, the fish is often used to represent Jesus. The other sea-shaped chocolates come from Jesus’s fishing “miracle” – as the legend tells he pulled up a net filled with sea creatures in the lake of Tibériade after fellow fishers had been coming home with empty nets for several days and were beginning to starve. The eggs, first Easter offering tradition, are a symbol of life and the rabbit, a symbol of spring and fertility.”
I think it is great that zChocolat honors their European traditions but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this wonderful gift of pleasure.
Of course the sensual experience doesn’t end here. When you order online, you have options of personalizing your gift with choices of elegant packaging (assortments, zBoxes, basswood boxes and mahogany boxes). Their chocolates are packaged in their black signature boxes and the whole gift is placed in a black fabric pouch. You have the opportunity to personalize your own love message printed on a white card inserted in the pouch pocket. Options to accessorize with a special trinket or a heart shaped padlock with a 4-digit combination you can personalize like a special date you share with your sweetie or even a a date of a birthday.
