Chocolates - The Ultimate Thank You Gift - Articles Surfing


It's difficult to find someone who doesn't like chocolate. Maybe it's in some measure due to the fact that chocolate releases endorphins, the same neurotransmitters that make you feel good after you sneeze or have sex or fall in love. The nearly universal draw to chocolate makes chocolate, in any shape or form, an extremely popular gift. This is as true for children as it is for grandparents; who didn't love trick-or-treating when they were little or receiving a box of chocolates for Valentine 's Day when they were older? Chocolate is a great gift for just about anyone, big or small.

Of course, all chocolate is not buildd equal. Though the mass-produced chocolates made by companies like M&M, Mars, and Hershey's taste good, they're really nothing compared to gourmet chocolate. It's a bit of a shame that some people go their whole lives thinking that 'gourmet chocolate' refers to those heart-shaped boxes of factory truffles passed around after Valentine's Day, but this couldn't be further from the truth (especially if you get to the box of Valentine's chocolates last and all that's left are the picked-over remains, most of them with holes in the bottom where your blittle sister punched her thumb through to see what kind of chocolate each contained).

True gourmet chocolate is usually crafted by master chocolatiers (which, speaking of, must be an amazing job). These chocolatiers construct chocolates in the same way that professional chefs fabricate meals; with the best ingredients, best recipes, and with an expert sense of taste. Though the finest chocolates can be found only at the table of one of these chocolatiers, other fine retail outlets like Godiva also sell some very good gourmet chocolates. Of course, like the finest meals, these gourmet chocolates do come at a price. Though you may pay $15 for a box of 50 chocolate truffles in a drug store, you're more likely to pay from $1.50-$5.00 per truffle if you're getting them from a professional chocolatiers.

Though gourmet chocolates aren't very likely to replace Hershey's Kisses in your everyday candy dish, they do make a great touch of excess, especially for that special person in your life (and even if you decide to spoil yourself every now and again). It's tough to explain or replicate the flavor of an outstanding chocolate; it's truly something you need to experience for yourself. Though it may take a little searching, eventually you'll find that perfect chocolate, and it will be tough to ever go back to Hershey's Kisses again.
