CONGRATS TO CATHY H. - ENJOY YOUR WONDERFUL CHOCOLATES!

Chocolates - it's that time of year they start showing up all over the place! They're one of my favorite host/hostess gifts to bring to parties we've been invited to because it's something they can tuck away and enjoy after the festivites are over.   I'm very picky about they type of chocolate I give too, I don't want it to be an everyday run of the mill, find it at the checkout line chocolate.  No, I want something you open up and it feels like a decadent gift!

I was so thrilled to review Romanicos Chocolate, just viewing their website had me excited to see what I would be sent and they didn't disappoint!  Just LOOK at how beautiful their chocolate is!

(Jason was at home when this was delivered, they DO ship full boxes, my husband just couldn't wait to dive in though.  And I'm also missing a chocolate bar as well thanks to my darling husband)

I was sent this amazing Mixed Cube of chocolates, it includes 12 Chocolate Truffles (assorted flavors), 12 Chocolate Art (assorted flavors), 12 Truffle Bites (assorted flavors).  A feature I thought was amazing was their made on or best by dates they include on the boxes.
 

Look at how beautiful their chocolates are!  Every chocolate is made by hand and made with the finest ingredients.  I was very impressed to learn that they make everything in small batches so it gives them the opportunity to check each piece closely and watch all the details.  How is that for quality control?   


Chocolate Art (aren't they beautiful?!)


I love how Romanicos Chocolate has perfected the just hard enough shell with the creamy, melt in your mouth chocolate on the inside.  I enjoyed the "extras" on the outside of the truffles I was sent, just enough to add a little more to each bite. 

These boxes are perfect for the holiday season as gifts to give, something to keep on hand when you receive that gift from someone and need something to give in return.  What I think is even better is the wonderful idea Romanticos Chocolate has rolled out this year, Family Holiday Gifts!

We are convinced that sending chocolate doesn’t just positively affect the person who receives and enjoys Romanicos’ mouthwatering chocolate. The more we communicate our gratitude, appreciation and love to those we are close to, the happier we become, too. 

We have made a personal mission to make it easier for you to send a personal greeting along with a perfect, tantalizing box of chocolates. Now, you can send in a family picture, crayon drawing or other design along with your order. 

Romanicos’ in-house design shop prints the image onto an original greeting card, and then we use vintage photo corners to hold the card in place on the top of our chocolate box. 

The service is available for one box of chocolates, and offers special savings starting with 15 boxes. 


 Who would not enjoy that holiday card?!  What a step above the Jones huh?  Check out their site for more information.  

Romanicos Chocolate was also kind enough to send us two of their Exotic Chocolate bars, Original Dark & Cayenne Pepper (all are lactose and gluten free - suitable for vegans) and three of their 80 gram Chocolate bars, Salted Almonds, Soy Beans & Sea Salt and Walnuts & Honey. (All are lactose, gluten and dairy free, suitable for vegans)  Jason devoured the Walnuts & Honey bar before I was able to get home.  I'm told it's safe to assume the empty wrapper meant he liked it.  


I was able to try the rest to give you an opinion of my own and again, I am blown away by the quality Romanicos Chocolate provides.  Each bite of these chocolate bars causes your mouth to be consumed with the perfect flavor of dark chocolate and just enough the the extra flavor to know its there without taking center stage away from the chocolate.  I'm a huge almond fan and I have to admit the salted almond bar was my favorite but the soy beans & sea salt was a very close second.  I loved the mix of sweet and salty!  

I had never had a cayenne pepper in a dessert before so I has a little hesitant but I thought it was a great new experience!  I loved how the pepper flavor rested on your taste buds enough to excite them but not enough to make you run for a glass of milk to help with the spice.  The Original Dark was just that, a perfect of original dark chocolate.  I usually shy away from dark chocolate because I think it's too much of a bitter flavor but Romanicos Chocolate has won me over with their products!

I am SO excited to offer this giveaway to my readers, I think it's the perfect time of year to start getting serious about your chocolates!  Romanicos Chocolate is providing one lucky winner a Mixed Cube of chocolate (a $75 value!).  Keep 'em for yourself or use them as gifts!
