Chocolates from Vintage Plantations

When I found out that one of my friends had started dating a chocolatier, I knew it was my duty to obtain some of his chocolates to taste test for my blog :) He was kind enough to send over a box for me to try.

His company, Vintage Plantations, not only produces yummy chocolates, but it's focused on helping small chocolate business in the countries where the beans actually grow. Here's a quote from the site: "Our products are made only from fermented, native original Vintage cocoa beans and honor the local flavor of the plantations, each harvest, and the distinctiveness of beans from one farm to another."

I love companies with a true mission to help others, especially ones that make the world a yummier place! Check out some of their delicious and beautiful truffles:

There were two of each type in the box, and they were all delicious! I wanted to take a photo of the filling of each one... but unfortunately I consumed them all too fast, so hopefully the outside is enough eye candy for you all ;)

They also have some really cute Valentine's Day chocolates in their shop. Check out the "bleeding hearts" with raspberry ganache filling... they look so good! :)

These look amazing! This is what I love about small businesses vs big international corporations. I am sure that they taste as amazing as they look!
