In addition to the complementary white, milk, and dark chocolate K bears filled with crisped rice that Diane Kron herself provided upon my (apparently large) purchase from K Chocolatier, she threw in a beautiful flower box filled with a few plain chocolate discs.
You’re probably wondering how much I spent in that one trip to K Chocolatier. Let’s not talk about that and say we did, OK? I think a better subject to discuss is what the milk discs were like.The disc has a weak caramel aroma, leaving me to taste it to determine what was going on here.
The soft chocolate was not very complex in flavor, offering standard creamy notes and a strong caramel tone. It actually verges on too sweet, and despite its smooth, creamy texture, isn’t quite at the level of other K Chocolatier creations.
But what about the semi-sweet discs that also came in that beautiful flower box?
Right away, I was greeted with something more complex, an aroma with caramel and nutty notes.
This disc was also smooth, creamy and somewhat soft, with a nice medium melt. In this chocolate, however, the flavor is up to par with the texture. The nuttiness is distinct, and coffee and vanilla undertones play well with it. It’s a very nice piece, though I declined to pick up a full bag because I was already spending (value redacted) at the shop.
Have you ever gotten chocolates in a flower-shaped box?
