Sometimes you just have to splurge on Gourmet Chocolate Candy.
You may not be rich, but every so often you can let yourself feel that way.
Personally, I am quite happy with a simple candy bar from the check out aisle at the grocery store. Should I be embarrassed to admit that? :)
The word "gourmet" means someone with very discriminating tastes. It is a person who enjoys dainty luxuries, like an epicure. The word gourmet is really a noun, but we use it more frequently as an adjective to describe top quality foods, for the most part.
Hence, we say gourmet chocolate when we are referring to chocolate of the highest quality that is favored by those of extremely discriminating taste, and by those who indulge in the luxuries of life.
When it comes to chocolate, I guess I am not as discriminating as I should be, although I can certainly appreciate the differences in quality and savor the best now and then.
There are several different types of gourmet chocolate candy sellers depending on what type of treat you want to indulge in yourself or as a gift for someone else.
Probably the most elegant presentation of gourmet chocolates that I have seen are from zChocolat. They aren't cheap, but they are in a class all of their own. They are prepared by some of the finest French chocolatiers.
If you are interested in trying Gourmet French Chocolate I would also recommend the selection at RICHART. These are gorgeous in their own right.
What I particularly love about Nirvana Chocolates is the fact that you can choose each piece individually to fill the box you order. When you are paying top dollar for gourmet chocolates, you don't want to be stuck with choices that you don't really care for. You can select only your absolute favorites. How wonderful is that?
You can find gourmet candy bars at Dan's Chocolates along with boxed chocolate truffles. For special occasions, you can have the box lid custom designed with a particular holiday or event, or even submit your own photos. That is a little extra special touch that is sure to go over big.
You know, you can also get gourmet gift baskets filled with a whole assortment of different types of gourmet chocolate candy if you have a special occasion that calls for some really lavish treats.
Finally, if you are looking for gourmet organic chocolate truffles you can check out the many choices for organic chocolate. I was surprised to find a really large selection, which is especially nice for people who are vegan, too. I've added them below so you can be tempted to taste. ;)
I hope you will enjoy splurging on yourself or someone you love with some really top quality chocolate every now and then.
