Ever since my sister attended her sister-in-law’s chocolate- and wine-tasting bridal shower, I’ve been meaning to tell you about John&Kira’s gourmet, artisan, chocolates. I was especially delighted when said sister gave a box of chocolates to my husband for Christmas and I got to try their delicious, melt-in-your-mouth flavor combos. As if producing incredible tasting, and gorgeous looking chocolate wasn’t enough, I also appreciate this Philidelphia business’ community involvement and earth-friendly stance. They use local and family farms for their fresh ingredients, and support an urban school garden program in West Philadelphia where the mint for their Garden Mint chocolates is grown. I never thought I’d say this but mmmm….Earth Day.
With other flavors like Lingering Lemongrass, Popohaku Farm Ginger, and Lavender Honey…you know you’re in for a unique, and often organic experience when trying these chocolates. Carefully embellished squares of chocolate and beautifully packaged product speak to John&Kira’s design sense as well and make their sweets even more of a joy to eat. I was delighted to discover they also offer wedding favor versions of their fine product. I think the lovebugs pictured above would be perfect, and a welcome treat for guests, such an event. So happy earth day (a day late) and why not celebrate with some chocolate!?
