Belgian Chocolatier Piron (Evanston)

Forget Godiva, the chocolates I tried from Piron were just fantastic.

I admit I am not a chocoholic, but if I visit Piron often, I could become one.

Piron claims it makes “exquisite handmade chocolates” and to that I don’t doubt.

Milk, Dark, White all varieties and more seem to be here. Gift boxes from 5pcs to 50 and more are readily available.

just gave a new admin an assortment box for her great work. I normally don't give out chocolate but she had a bear that says "I love chocolate" when you squeeze its hand.

chocolate was gone in one afternoon!

Coco Rouge

Just read about a place in Chicago called Coco Rouge in the Tribune. Looks like my office chocoholics are going to get something different this year.

Some of the truffle flavors sounded delicious:

Araminta: white chocolate ganache w/blueberries, Tahitian vanilla and Egyptian jasmine
Turkish Coffee: espresso and bittersweet chocolate with pistachio puree and cardamom
Spanish Quince paste with French Calvados

There are also candied almonds with orange blossom honey, smoked paprika, fennel pollen.
