I'd like to send a gift of fine dark chocolates to a friend. Does anyone know of a website that ships beautiful gift boxes of fine chocolates? Thanks.

      The cookies are also really good.

        I completely agree. The dark chocolate covered shortbread is so wonderful.

        I love their shop on Virgil and every time I've been one of the owners is there to oversee and give personal customer service. Their dark truffles are some of the best I've ever had.

        I also cannot recommend them high enough! The truffles and caramel box is insanely good, and I too ship them.

          Valerie is very good. I'd also recommend Compartes.

          I have received from both recently, both were fresh and delicious/high quality.

            I do love LifttleJohn's English Toffee at Farmers Market. Best I've ever had and they do ship.
