Comment:
I ordered these for my husband for Valentine's Day though truly he doesn't eat many sweets. After trying a few ourselves and being totally impressed with their pop of flavor and how beautiful they looked, I took them over on a glass plate to share at a small family gathering. They caught everyone's attention as they passed by where I had them sitting. Those who tried them all wanted to know who made them and where they could get them. I will order these again for special occasions/company/me! One note: the ones with caramel filling will drip if they are at all warm when you bit into them. Be sure they are chilled a little before serving.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I eat an ounce of a chocolate bar every night. It is the perfect end to a meal. The only thing better than his chocolates is his ice cream. Those favors are equally as amazing as the chocolates! I am thrilled that good dark chocolate is also good for you so that Christopher Elbow chocolates is no longer a guilty indulgence of mine!

Comment:
If you love trying new flavors and enjoy food craftsmanship and crave sweets, get thee to Elbow Chocolates! I can only tolerate mass-marketed chocolates now, which is fine by me. When I have some cash to burn, I always treat myself to a box or one of the other bagged treats--I'm very lucky to live in the KC area where he has a store and decent distribution networks.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
