Gourmet chocolate - Pasadena

mocro Jan 29, 2013 08:20 AM

I need to spend $50-ish on chocolates for a client and the presentation has to be elegant. Whole Foods, Bristol Farms and Gelson's didn't have anything appropriate so today I plan to head to Mignon Chocolates in Old Town which I'm not familiar with. Is this my best bet in Pasadena? Thanks!

    You could also consider Amara http://www.amarachocolate.com/

      I bought someone a Christmas gift from Amara, a box of truffles. It was disappointing. The biggest gift offering they had was a box of 20 truffles. The presentation want anything special and the gift recipient wasn't very impressed with the chocolate.

      I didn't try to chocolate truffles myself and had only gotten the gift because it was a specific request from the recipient.

      Maybe they have more or better options now than when I went in December.

      I did order a really delicious chocolate drink from Amara while I was there.

      The Cheese Store of Pasadena might also be worth a look.
