Chapon Chocolatier has put together a magnificent collection of 36 small, single origin dark chocolate tablets for your tasting pleasure, and I am proud to present it to you. This box set contains three individually wrapped tablets from twelve distinct origins; some of the cacao is quite rare and precious, such as Venezuela Porcelana, Venezuela Chuao and Bolivia Tranquilidad. The assortment is perfectly designed for you to conduct your own elegant chocolate tasting with family and friends at your next celebration. These tablets are gluten, dairy and nut-free.
The caption for this curated selection is "Le chocolat a du coeur, le cacao a une âme" and I couldn't agree more! Chocolate has a heart, cacao has a soul, and you will have the joy of biting into that sentiment and letting it melt in your mouth as you explore the contents of this grand assortment.
This beautiful chocolate medley was made by multi-awarded pâtissier-chocolatier Patrice Chapon, who once supplied ice creams and sorbets to Buckingham Palace. It's no surprise that he was invited to make the Queen's frozen desserts. Patrice's ice cream is voluptuous and silky, infused with ambrosial vanilla and opulent cinnamon.
While in England, he became fascinated with the concept of making his own bean-to-bar chocolate courtesy of the alluring array of chocolates at Harrod's. Patrice now has five chocolate boutiques in France, three of which are in Paris, as well as his own chocolate mousse truck that traverses the streets of the City of Lights.
Chapon's packaging is replete with fanciful whimsy but the chocolate nestled inside is serious (and seriously delicious)! Several times each year, Patrice's journeys take him all over the globe, from the lush forests of Brazil to the Millot or Sambirano plantations in Madagascar. He feels compelled to meet the inspiring cacao farmers, learn about the beans, and source the finest vanilla, pink berry peppers and other spices for his indulgent creations.

I'm drawn to Chapon because the company shares the same ultimate goal as Barometer Chocolate - pure pleasure!
