We are going to have an excellent chocolate-filled weekend. I am so thrilled to do this review. I am reviewing Chocoholic.com. That’s right – chocolate! Chocoholic.com is a mouth-watering place that features some of the finest chocolates. I had so much fun looking around on their website, and I wanted one of everything. I did not get one of everything, but the nice people at Chocoholic.com did send me the beautiful Godiva Connoisseur Gift Basket for review! But before I tell you about this, here is a little information about Chocoholic.com from their website:
Chocoholic.com was on the Internet way before the Internet was cool. Two entrepreneurs Stephanie Fohn and Jennie Leavell started Chocoholic.com in 1996, when the Internet was little more than the latest craze amongst computer savvy techies. Believing the Internet was the wave of the future Stephanie and Jennie set out to develop a web site for ardent chocoholics and recruited a number of forward thinking artisanal chocolatiers to their site. During the early Internet days leading up to 2001/2002 many others decided to jump into internet chocolate sales, seeking quick wealth. Fortunately (or unfortunately for them) most of these companies were swept away by the infamous “dot.com bust”. Chocoholic.com which emphasized great products, outstanding service and self sustaining growth, survived and continues to thrive by sticking to the basics. In 2006 Chocoholic.com celebrated it’s 10th Anniversary, a notable achievement in the nascent world of Internet commerce. With a wide selection of artisanal chocolatiers and experienced customer service staff on the east and west coast, Chocoholic.com offers you fast and efficient service. So when you’re looking for the best in chocolate, remember: Chocoholic.com is “your connection to the world of premium chocolate”.
Talk about a dream job! I think I missed my calling. Ahem – but on to my review.
The basket I received from Chocoholic.com was absolutely gorgeous. So far, so good right? I hated to open it but after staring at it for about 2 seconds five minutes, it was finally time to unleash the chocolaty goodness. What a wonderful assortment of chocolate treats! First up – Chocolate Covered Dried Strawberries. These are just as heavenly as you might imagine. Next I tried the Signature Biscuits – biscuits covered with divine Godiva chocolate. These are so incredibly tasty. Also included were 4pc Gold Ballotin (Assorted milk, dark and white chocolates). These are absolutely beautiful – I indulged in a chocolate heart (of course with “Godiva” printed on it), and a star shaped white and dark chocolate piece. There are more delectable items in the basket, but I am trying my hardest to save a few pieces for my husband.
I have not tried Godiva before (if you can believe that!), but I am familiar with most other fine chocolates. The quality was wonderful – they literally melted in my mouth. They were rich, yet not overly sweet. I am one happy girl.
Of course Chocoholic.com has many other chocolate choices too. They offer the best collection of chocolates from fine chocolate companies – Ghirardelli, Ethel’s, and DeBrand, just to name a few. They carry chocolate gift baskets and other chocolate gifts which are perfect for those on your holiday list.
There is still time to order for Christmas delivery! Chocoholic.com also has nut free, sugar-free, dairy free and kosher offerings for those with dietary restrictions. There is also a Chocolate of the Month at Chocoholic.com. I wonder if my husband is aware of this? They also have a handy reminder service to help you remember those important birthdays, anniversaries and other events!
A reminder to all chocoholics: Always eat chocolate responsibly and don’t unwrap chocolate while driving!
