Our 2023 menu describes above all the chocolates we will introduce or rotate in the coming year. Some are highly seasonal and available only when their ingredients make their fleeting appearance in our region, while others show up to celebrate a new season, or Valentine Day, or just because...
As of September 2023, our collection includes 17 chocolates, and one marzipan. As with all our confections, our chocolates are made with organic cream, butter and citrus.
LA COLLECTION, September 2023:
72% Guittard dark chocolate shells:
Almond Marzipan: our artisan marzipan gems have a dark chocolate shell, which gives the beautiful almond confection a perfect not too sweet balance. Vegan.
