With a wide range of chocolate offerings Vosges truffles are one of a kind. Not to deter from the flavor that they pack, I am also love the simple, luxe packaging that highlights just how beautiful each piece is. The entire line of these ‘haute chocolates’ are made using 100% renewable energy within organic manufacturing facilities. In fact, the chic packaging is 100% recycled, with the ‘plastic’ portion made of compostable cornstarch.
Offering dozens of delightful delectables, of the more unique offerings from the eco-conscious company are their irresistible Drunken Figs. Made entirely by hand, these whole organic figs are soaked in sustainably produced port-style wine and then coated with a crisp shell of organic, fair-trade chocolate.
