The grand dame of American chocolate... alas, also bland. Her Spiced Macadamia Nuts pretty much sums it up: slightly spiced, lightly salted, & odd separation between the smoke & paprika like a numinous trick of theurgical powers.
Presentation   4.3 / 5
glitzy ribbons & box; good-looking chocolates

Aromas   4.7 / 5
high point of the experience; nice balance builds anticipation
Textures/Melt   7.8 / 10
Shells: thick enough to generate loud-felt snap
Centers: light fills
Flavor   36.4 / 50
precious little difference from 1 taste to another; replete w/ neutralizing
Quality   20.6 / 30
Well-made but never rises past a snack habit.
Selections
Couverture: El Rey; Felchlin
Coconut Gold Bar – almond joy accurate
Macadamia Gold Bar – butterscotch caramel, low mac daddy
70% – burnt carbon-based beauty bar w/ Seattle tang on the uptake
