Favorite chocolate truffels w/ online ordering Wed, 05/9/07 4:59 PM (permalink)
I ordered some cinnamon buns (thanks jack) but would like to grab the spouse some really good chocolate truffels for mothers day. Online ordering is a necessity. I'm considering Godiva but I really want to hear from somebody who has ordered from a small chocolatier online if possible.

I've done all the searches and have some bookmarked but I'm looking for YOUR personal recommendation.

Any help is appreciated.

      Expensive but very nice. If not truffles, how about some chocolate-covered blackberries?

        Here are a few that I've had:

        Vosges (based in Chicago) - wonderful and eclectic flavors. Beautiful packaging. Expensive.

        MarieBelle (NYC) - less about chocolate and more about the look of the chocolates, lovely boxes, elegant presentation. Fresh flavors. Expensive.

        Recchiuti (SF) - rich chocolates, inventive and intense flavor combinations, some good comfort foods options. Quality ingredients. Nice packaging. Expensive.

        Fran's (Seattle) - fresh ingredients, sedate aesthetic, traditional and very tasty. Expensive

        Chuao Chocolatier (Encinitas, CA) - made with all Venezuelan chocolate, great flavors & clean packaging. Expensive

        Charles Chocolates (SF) - amazing flavor combos, take a look at the tuffles in the chocolate boxes ... really great. Expensive

        Ethel (Chicago/Vegas) - fascinating stuff, kind of has a mass manufactured feel, but very inventive and cute. Moderate

        Sees (West Coast) - dependable and tasty. A little ordinary (I'm not as keen on the truffles as the Nuts & Chews.) Inexpensive

        There are others I've tried but I can't think of them off the top of my head. Most I've picked up in person, only a few online.

          I will second Bissingers, their bear claw caramel is absolutely sinful.... Ok most everything I have had from them is sinful.

          The french truffles are melt in the mouth delicious, with an awesome mouth feel and taste
