FLAVOR MENU for boxes of chocolates

As of July 11, 2024

CLICK HERE FOR OUR ONLINE STORE

EVERY BOX (except small favor boxes) HAS A FLAVOR LABEL INSIDE. THIS MENU CAN BE USED AS A GUIDE TO MORE INFO ABOUT THE FLAVORS IN YOUR BOX.
If you would like to choose the flavors in your box of chocolates, or have any dietary restrictions, just let us know your preferences in the Notes during Checkout. 

Please note that almost all of our assorted chocolates and caramels are made with our House Blend dark chocolate..

Why dark chocolate? Well, because we roast our own cocoa beans we control the level of bitterness, astringency and acidity in our chocolate. Our chocolate making style results in a chocolate that is creamy and smooth, but not bitter. So, we don't need milk to offset bitterness or to add creaminess. We do make a small number of flavors with milk or white chocolate when we feel that a flavor combination benefits from that additional touch. Whether you have traditionally been a lover or hater of dark chocolate, we hope you'll come along for the ride with us.

Our small batches come & go, so if we are out of any requested flavors we will substitute for something we hope you will enjoy trying.

Anything crosseed out is not currently available.
