L'Artisan du Chocolat

I received two boxes of their chocolate recently. After immediately popping a few into my mouth, I realized that it was going to bother me that I couldn't definitively identify the flavors. I knew one was "sweet and fruity" and the other was "sweet but with a spicy kick."

I took a picture and emailed the store and they very kindly (and promptly!) responded with a list of all the flavors that were included in my boxes. They're attached here since I noticed many people wished that L'Artisan included a key or other photos on their website. Hope this helps!

        It is REALLY good! You should try them. Their chocolates are fantastic! I loved the olive and the chili ones best.

      2. You received TWO boxes of L'Artisan chocolates? Who gave them to you, I want to be their friend. Please savor and enjoy. I'll also be happy to help you identify which is which. :)

          Haha! If you want, I can put you in touch with my wonderfully generous boyfriend and see if he'll send a few boxes your way ;)

          My favorites so far are the Pistachio & the Passionfruit.

        2. I Loooove their chocolate. They come to the farmer's market in the Palisades on Sundays (used to be every Sunday, now they are spreading the love elsewhere). The chocolate is very fresh and the flavors are amazing.

          1. they make the best chocolate in l.a. and the pave noir is simple, potent and perfect. it's always fun to try a new fun and funky flavor too.
