“With Love From Provence”
Sophisticated elegance is the two words I would describe my experience with Zchocolat. Known for their ‘slick’ black signature packaging and of course their delectable treats that will get your fingers itching to touch and mouth watering just at the sight of these dark and colorful beauties.
First encountered Zchocolat when I was looking for special chocolate gift ideas that would leave a lasting impression and this company does exactly that. They really elevated gift personalization to the next level. When you see their website and actually see their works of art first hand, you will strongly agree with me. You’ll offer selection of distinctive and memorable gifts for the man or woman in your life for many occasions. Most popular time of the year? Of course Valentine’s Day with their chocolate hearts collection.
I am honored to have received their most popular chocolate assortment and their fruit jellies and nougat selection as part of their “With Love from Provence” collection. Personally not a fan of fruit jellies perhaps due to bad childhood memories of the hard texture and overwhelming amount of sugar, but I was surprised how yummy these were. Soft texture and hint of sweetness loaded with fruit bursting with each bite. Hmmm… cherry, apricot, strawberry, apply and raspberry. I just couldn’t stop at just one.
Love nougat when it is fresh, soft and chewy rather than hard and really sweet. Zchocolat’s nougats were rich and very creamy which were saved for last.
Now the best part! Of course I can say the ‘best part’ cause I’m a woman who loves good quality chocolates especially preservative free. Normally I gravitate toward single origin bars as they are already packed with flavors and aromas, but must admit love their gourmet gems. Look at the pictures you can see why.
All presented nicely in rows you know this is one experience you will want to do again and again. Choose from white, milk (Ivory Coast) and dark (Venezuelan). What’s very interesting is each chocolate is numbered. How cool is that? Easy to figure out with the legend what it is rather than trying to guess based on design. Due to lack of preserves these beauties need to be consumed with a couple of weeks of receiving.
Packaging that guarantees fresh chocolates!
This is one company that doesn’t skim on packaging!
Live in a hot city where you experience warm/hot temperatures and climates? Not to worry as Zchocolat got you covered. Your packaged comes in a silver reflective box filled with Styrofoam blocks to prevent from shifting and a number of temperature controlled refrigerant packs to keep the treats fresh and in shape upon delivery.
Yes you can make any chocolate gift to suit your loved one’s personality. Customize the chocolate selection, perhaps have it all contained in a beautiful wooden box and add a personal note all put into a black fabric pouch for your loved one to bring a smile to their faces.
