We all have our preferences when it comes to chocolate. Some prefer lighter milk chocolate, some like nuts, others like fruity flavors or caramel and don’t care too much about the outsides at all.
If you are giving chocolate as a gift, you really can’t beat quality-made chocolates from a local chocolatier. You can often get them custom-made, to suit any occasion. This is particularly helpful if you are looking for Kosher or Halal chocolates.
Assorted Dark Premium Quality Chocolate Tin Gift Box is one of our top-selling gift boxes. If you have even had one, you know why. These luxurious chocolates are sure to please everyone.
They come in five different flavors:
- Duo Heart Dark and Milky
- Ganache Dark and Milky Special Chocolate
- Trio Hazelnut
There are five pieces of each chocolate flavor so everyone can have a sample, or you can have them all to yourself, which is the way chocolate is meant to be eaten, anyhow.
Maybe you can sort out your favorites and then everyone else fight it out over the other ones. Mostly, you want to eat the ones you like when you like, and that’s why you don’t ever have to share your gift box of dark chocolate.
Chocolate goes so well with coffee, with nuts, with ganache, it’s hard to decide. Have one with breakfast, have another at lunch, the cappuccino after dinner, and then top it all off with the hazelnut and a glass of rich red wine.
You can also keep the decorative tin they come in and use it for keeping anything you need to. We like to think you will keep old love letters in it, then every time you see the tin, you know what is in and what came in it in the first place. Love.
Anybody who’s anybody knows that dark chocolate is the best. We feel chocolate should be classified in its own food group. But there are actually health benefits to eating dark chocolate.
Dark chocolate comes from cacao, which is a plant with high levels of minerals and antioxidants. Therefore, dark chocolate naturally contains several of these compounds that have antioxidant elements.
These are flavonols and polyphenols and these antioxidants help to neutralize free radicals and prevent oxidative stress. This refers to the damage that excessive amounts of free radicals can inflict on cells and tissues in the body.
Not only does it help to slow our natural aging process, but it can also help fight against heart disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, eye disease, cancer, and dementia.
Dark chocolate in all its goodness can also help to fight inflammation, helps with high blood pressure, and may even lower your cholesterol. Whew! Did you know all that?
It’s like these dark chocolates are magic, and that’s how we like to think of them. Every tin of dark chocolates is so great it’s heavenly. It’s almost medicine! *Spoiler Alert* It’s not medicine, but you should take it like it is.
