Bit of a re-seller offering a wide variety of product. The assortments add up to candy rather than chocolate, while the truffles rep the better side of this shop. Either way, expect decent, middling results.
Presentation   3.2 / 5
over-sized
Aromas   4 / 5
cocoa dominant
Textures/Melt   7.9 / 10
Shells: huge snap & strong dichotomy between the enrobing & the ganache
Centers: fully creamed
Flavor   35.6 / 50
interiors generally under-whelm though in certain cases subtlety demonstrates real skill
Quality   20.5 / 30
Respectable but lacks indentity.
Selections
Couverture:
Assortments – each w/ unique character
Caramel – crunchy, gummy, salty... tasty
Raspberry Wafer Roll – ineffectual
Peanut Butter – crunchy dry-chocolate rice crispy
Neopolitan – weak MIA

Truffles
Just Chocolate – rich dark cream; unremarkable
Kahlua – example of underscoring the café liqueur; still, meaty good
Dutch – true & thru articulated milk choc treat
Champagne – a contender; light & accurate w/ the right sparkle note
