Vosges Haut-Chocolat immediately piqued my interest. Yes, I love chocolate, but I was really captivated by their exotic flavored truffles and candy bars and amused by their indulgent "how-to-taste-chocolate" instructions which are akin to tasting a fine wine. Their Red Fire Exotic Candy Bar, which fuses dark chocolate, cinnamon and chipotle chillies, encourages the buyer to see, smell, snap and savor the chocolate with detailed directions. Why not take your chocolate seriously?
So if your interest is also piqued, it may be worth considering Vosges chocolates for a wedding favor or as gifts for out-of-towners who come to your big day. Choose from their most popular two-piece truffle gift box in white or purple, or opt for the larger purple Bijoux box complete with fortune cookie or the more contemporary Asian takeout container adorned with its signature purple ribbon and chopsticks. A larger four-piece purple box (better to see the chocolates, we thought!) is pictured here. —from our Local Scout Chicago blogger Beth Wilson
