as expected, it received only positive reviews, such as this one: ‘the best chocolate you could ever taste! it’s true that these treats aren’t cheap but they are worth every penny!
these extremely scrumptious chocolates are artfully shaped & have different fillings from traditional ones such as honey & lemon grass which are the tastiest to special ones such as thyme & pepper.
every piece of chocolate at Puccini Bomboni is a pure bliss in itself! I am still dreaming of them every day.

9. Richart – Paris, France
the French chocolate maker Richart has won the ‘Ruban Bleu’, which is France’s most prestigious confectioner’s honor, several times.
Richart chocolate boutiques are the best places where you’ll find French macarons & gourmet chocolate, such as: ‘French Pates de Fruits'( with 5 different flavors), ‘Infuzzz Chocolates’, ‘Dark Chocolate Bars’ ‘The Chocolate Vault’, ‘Nut-Free Indulgences’ & ‘Spread The Love!’ (which are mini heart-shaped chocolates filled with salted-butter caramel & dark chocolate praline).
& a box of assorted chocolates sure looks visually stunning. gentlemen, ladies love chocolate.
if you want to impress them, then the $850 burlwood vault with 7 drawers of chocolate is the best way to do it.
review: ‘as a life long chocoholic & lecturer at chocolate awareness educational seminars & chocolate tasting sessions around the world, I have had the privilege of sampling a broad spectrum of product from leading manufacturers & chocolatiers.
none, however, approaches the artistry, elegance, complexity, originality & sheer perfection of taste as do the chocolates created by Michel Richart.
each of his offerings presents a different sensation to the palette … spicy, sweet, bitter, pungent. I especially recommend Richart’s Salted Butter Caramel Coulis. it’s an over-the-top chocolate experience that lingers & lasts on the palette & in the mind.’
