Lovely dark chocs!
Just some pics of the packaging and goodies we bought.
They had their machinery behind a glass partition with an micromini amphitheater seating so you could watch them smooshing beans.
And the box - loved the design!
And the cookies (which were gone in seconds)
Oh, but how we the chocolates you ask? Friggin' divine. Strong, distinct dark chocolate taste perfectly balanced with a variety flavoring and without any acidity or cloying sweetness. One of the best balancing acts I've had in a long time and I'm a woman who loves Marcolini's acidic edges. I like a strong flavor that can be dialed up or down to complement a diversity of flavors -- everything from sweet balsamic vinegar to the earthy almond cluster. Both my husband and myself loved most of the chocs we bought, with the exception of the Douglas Fir praline which I liked, but my husband found tedious. But c'mon, who doesn't want to eat a tree flavored chocolate? I will definitely buy them again, but it may have to be by mail order since I'm switching coasts. Oh and here's their shiny mod website: http://www.somachocolate.com/
