Best Luxury Chocolate Ideas for Valentine's Day
Chocolate Trading Company Offers The Best of the Rest of the World
The Chocolate Trading Company is a one stop shop of the finest chocolate sourced from around the world. The high end products available such as Amedei, multiple winner of the Academy of Chocolate's Golden Bean award, are not easy to source elsewhere and these are mixed with brands such as Godiva, one of Belgium's most universal products, meaning that there is a real choice for all.
The company itself presents its own superior brand with a range of boxes and cubes, all under £20 for a good Valentine's budget, boasting good presentation and quality. The collection does not suffer in comparison to the so-called big boys and will appeal to the tastes of many with milk, dark and white chocolates that are soya lecithin free, containing only 100% pure cocoa butter. In the current climate of a market more driven by healthy options, there are also reduced sugars.
The company also offers a free gift message with every order for a more bespoke approach. To add a real personal touch, greetings cards feature different designs including a special Valentine’s Day card selection.
Hotel Chocolat Has Something for Men and Women
Hotel Chocolat has always been a luxury chocolatier that presents itself in a way that is more personable than pompous. There is no air of mystery or jargon about the products. They are there to be enjoyed.
Their Heart Shaped Chocolate Box is the signature lead in the Valentine's Day range. There are 35 chocolates, including caramels, truffles, pralines, fruits and mousses. The presentation speaks for itself but the mix of chocolates range from the playful to the professional with a kaleidoscope of cracking colours and tastes.
The Valentines’s Day Sleekster is another alternative with 27 chocolates moulded in the traditional heart shape. There is even a reasonably priced Beer and Chocolate Hamper that contains a cocoa beer and a selection of chocolate nibbles that might just suit the guy who "doesn't do" delicacies.
Rococo Chocolates is the Artisan With an Eye for Detail
Rococo has a mesmerising eye candy appeal for the true artisan experience. Known for its boutique shops in trendy London, Valentine’s Day holds treats both small and large, from the beautifully packaged The Cat That Got The Cream Ganache Selection Box to the lovingly hand painted Baby Hearts Red. There isn't really anything like Rococo on the market. Romance is not dead when you can feel the taste before opening. If Valentine's Day is an experience, then this is the chocolate to elevate it.
