From the time when European royals drank chocolate to when chocolatiers formed the delicious candy into bars and truffles, chocolate has always been a luxury treat. Eating chocolate is a sensation, tantalizing taste buds with silky textures and full cocoa flavors. Really delicious chocolate can even excite strong feelings of happiness and sometimes love. zChocolat knows quality matters most in creating a riveting chocolate experience. When giving that special someone a box of chocolates this holiday season, zChocolat’s line of gourmet chocolates raises the spatula and goes beyond the bon-bon wrapper.

zChocolat is created in France by World Champion Chocolatier Pascal Caffet and ships worldwide. Each mini masterpiece is made using high-grade, single-origin chocolate from Venezuela, the Ivory Coast, and Bolivia. The devilishly rich ganache is prepared with top-shelf quality butter and cream from Normandy, and even the nuts are ensured to be nothing but the best, hailing from Spain and Italy. These worldly ingredients combine in 26 different ways to please even the most particular chocolate connoisseur.

Luxury doesn’t stop at the wrapper with these chocolate dreams. zChocolat nestles their exquisite creations inside of a gorgeous box for a truly memorable treat. Impress your honey this Christmas by choosing from an elegant handcrafted mahogany box or a holiday-special crimson box. To further customize this stocking-stuffer, you can include a personal photo, logo, or card inside and even have the zChocolate box engraved. Plus, you can hand-select the chocolates to fulfill their coconut cream and chocolate toffee fantasies!

We at CupidsPulse.com had the privilege of indulging in these delectable chocolates, and all we can say is wow! zChocolat more than delivers on its promise of offering superb chocolates. Each piece is creamy and well-balanced, and all of the unique flavor notes from almond to red pepper can be tasted in each bundle of chocolate sublimity. All of the girls in the office agreed that if our man got us zChocolat as a gift, we’d be ecstatic. And now, one lucky CupidsPulse.com reader will get to enjoy a box of decadence as well!
