Who needs a chocolate Easter bunny?

Vosges Haut-Chocolat has a new collection of truffles that celebrate spring. And then some. While it's true that Vosges Haut-Chocolat is an advertiser, a good turn always deserves effusive praise.

From their press release:
Inhale the scent of fresh cut grass and springtime blossoms, gallivant in your galoshes in April rain showers…spring is a time for renewal, rejuvenation and a reminder to celebrate our magical Mother Earth. The Green Collection was inspired by the spices, teas, fruits and flowers indigenous to Asia, including Japanese cherry blossoms. The launch of the collection is centered on the life cycle of these beautiful blooms, and is available for a limited time only!

The 16 piece Green Collection includes:
  • Ellateria (4): Indian green cardamom + dark chocolate + white poppy seeds
  • Kaffir (4): Thai kaffir lime + fresh coconut + dark chocolate
  • Kayoko (4): Japanese matcha green tea + white chocolate + cherry blossom petals
  • Buddha's Leaf (4): Malaysian pandan leaves + dark chocolate + cocoa powder
Vosges Haut-Chocolat has three locations in Chicago, including one in O'Hare. They have two locations in New York and one in Las Vegas. Of course their amazing chocolates are available everywhere through their website.

I love good chocolate and the offerings from Vosges Haut-Chocolat are the best I've ever found. Which by the way, is why they're an advertiser in the first place.


  1. omg.. cardamom... *drool*

    you know I'm on a diet, right?

  2. mmmmm chocolate....

    Hey Paul, could you please direct me to those posts on the folks who do the custom printed fabric? You know, the ones who did up one for the gal at Design Ties with the billiard ball design. Coz, um, that "search this blog and beyond" up over there on the right, yea, it don't do squat. Nuttin.
    Thank you!

  3. Nim: I feel the same way about cardamom. I find that if I drink enough chai I end up smelling like cardamom. I can only imagine that combining it with chocolate would be sublime.

    Susan: When you use my search, four tabs appear on the top of the page, clicking on any of the tabs will direct you to mentions of your serach terms in my blog, my blogroll, my links and the web in general. It's a wee bit hard to see though and I never noticed that until now. I'll work on reformatting that. In the meantime, here's a link to a post about Spoonflower: http://www.kitchenandresidentialdesign.com/2009/08/my-heart-still-belongs-to-spoonflower.html

  4. Thank you Paul, You rock!

  5. Paul, then you should definitely make that cardamom bread recipe I posted!

  6. Mmmmm, cardamom bread. That's right. I have that recipe bookmarked.

  7. Donna: These people have single handedly made salt cool again.

  8. Yum, chocolate!!!! Lime, coconut, and dark chocolate.... that sounds intriguing!!

    It was actually Fabric on Demand that did up the billiard ball fabric:



  9. Wooops! Thanks for the correction Kelly. I got samples from both of them at around the same time. Did you ever complete your project with that fabric?

  10. I was fortunate enough to get a nice little box of these fed ex'd to me as a gift from one of my manufacturer's a few months ago.... YUM!

  11. Vosges is my first stop when I get to O'Hare in a couple of weeks.

  12. Do you have recommendation for cleaning drool from a laptop keyboard? My touch pad is a mess now. Or am I am hallucinating... overstimulated just now.


Talk to me!
