Choclatique – The Fanciest Chocolate At The Fancy Food Show!
When you’re looking for the finest chocolate in the world, you’ll most likely find it at the 33rd Annual Winter Fancy Food Show at the San Diego Convention Center January 13-15, 2008.
For sure that’s where you will be able to taste a sampling from Choclatique (Savor California Booth #843). Choclatique is for fun-loving, sophisticated chocolate lovers.
Choclatique is Nirvana, the Holy Grail and Disneyland melted into one luscious sensory experience. Choclatique beams as a delightful oasis in the oft-bland land of commercial chocolate-making. That’s what inspired founders Ed Engoron and Joan Vieweger to set out on a very personal journey to create beautifully seductive, hand-crafted chocolates to tempt the lips, thrill the palate and tickle the tummy!
Choclatique At A Glance
The Choclatique line of hand-made, hand-decorated and hand-packed chocolates can be defined by one delicious expression: flavor thrills. Following time-honored traditions of French chocolate making, the Choclatique artisans continually discover innovative ways to create delightful and beautiful chocolates.
In particular, they are known for Authentically American flavors – Boston Cream Pie, Cup O’ Joe, Jelly Doughnut, Root Beer Float and Hot Fudge Sundae, to name just a few. The beautifully tempered chocolates are generously filled with premium nuts, luscious caramels, chewy nougats, and creamy ganache and a few are just wonderful, solid chocolate-Dark, Milk, White and Azteca!
