So, you are looking for a unique Mother’s Day gift, something out of the ordinary.
Imagine sourcing the finest chocolate in the world from a small, artisan chocolatier just ouside Pisa in Tuscany. 63% Toscano Black cocoa. Each bean is ground using a traditional granite stone mill.
Imagine artisan truffles with the finest ingredients, the most exquisite champagne and no additives or preservatives. Imagine the richest ganache enrobed in the most decadent chocolate and lavished with edible 24 carat gold flakes. All this creates the most luxurious chocolate experience.
Co-founder Tracey Jones of ‘the Chocolate’ explains:
When I tasted this chocolate it stole my heart. I later discovered how well regarded by experts our supplier is. The company pays its farmers three times more than the going rate of other merchants, so it also satisfied my ethical concerns. Our unique selling point comes from using the gold flakes, good champagne, no preservatives and hand-decorating the boxes with Swarovski crystals.
Yes, have I mentioned that each box is lovingly adorned with Swarovski crystals and the gold is imported from Switzerland? Each batch is freshly made to order.
Check out The Boutique Box.
Each box is hand crafted so no two are alike. More than 450 Swarovski Crystals adorn each box inside and out – a wonderful collectors item. Each part of the product is hand made in the UK.
The Boutique Box of 15 truffles costs £190, with smaller alternatives available.
“When you are small with a great product, never be seduced into running and overstretching yourself: know where you are heading and keep walking.” – Tracey Jones
There are may different size boxes, including the Gemello. Gemello in Italian means twin.
Gemello contains two extra large Champagne truffles enrobed in edible pure 24 carat gold flakes. They are handmade fresh to order and set in a lovely box with Swarovski crystals.
|Gemello Box: £20.00 delivered.|

But, how does it taste? That is the question.
It tastes like luxury, like rich decadent evenings spent in exotic mysterious locales with satin sheets and ceiling fans, like the finest richest ganache melting in your mouth as your tastebuds come alive. It tastes like European cafes where you sit and linger over that one delicious caffe latte and write in your journal about secret trysts that you will never tell anyone about. It tastes like the smoothest romantic line you’ve ever heard which just happens to be true.
