It's four days before St. Valentine's Day, and since you're late in your planning (as usual!), we're here to help! We're offering a blowout sale on all of the fine chocolate bars we carry: buy two, and get one free. It's simple, it's easy, and it's some of the best artisan chocolate bar on the planet, all at practically wholesale cost.

Our current inventory includes:

CLAUDIO CORALLO: 73.5% Nibs & Orange Peel

Claudio Corallo hails from the tiny island nation of São Tomé & Príncipe, and is the most unprocessed, honest, handmade, unique chocolate on Planet Earth. If that sounds outrageous, it is. And it's also true.

MAROU: 70%, 72%, 80%

Marou is Vietnam's only chocolate producer, and it's truly amazing. Each of these bars is made from cacao from a single plantation, and is beautifully packaged and has incredible flavor, to match. Perhaps our most popular gift chocolate.

FRUITION: Bourbon Aged, Brown Butter, 100%

Handcrafted in New York's Catskill Mountains, Fruition is a relative new maker who blew us away with their quality and innovative recipes. The Bourbon Barrel Aged and Brown Butter are both dark milk chocolates, which are rare and wonderful, and the only two bars we've ever carried that aren't pure dark chocolates. Taste them, and you'll see why!

FRESCO: Peru 70% Light, Peru 70% Dark, Dominican 72%

These origin bars are made here in Washington State, and showcase different methods of processing cacao to achieve amazing results! The Peru bars (from San Martin) are neat because the bars are identical except for the roast of the beans...try them side by side to see what a difference roast time makes!

RITUAL: 75% Nibs

Fruity Belize & nutty Madagascar beans combine with crunchy nibs in this fun offering from Park City, Utah's Ritual Chocolate.

We hope you come take advantage of us--I mean, our chocolate sale--and grab some tasty treats for Valentine's Day, Presidents' Day, or any day of the week that ends in "-day". Just to repeat: all bars are three-for-the-price-of-two, mix & match. You know you're worth it.
