Summer chocolates and news from Pierre Marcolini

I recently was treated to a box of chocolates from Pierre Marcolini. They are the kind of boxes that are this girl's best friend, poupoupidou.


Summer pastels

Pierre Marcolini loves the seasons, his chocolates come out in collections like on the fashion runways. This Summer is all fruity for him. Six fruit and chocolate combos that explode with aromas of zest and juice in your mouth.


Chocolate can be very heavy on a warm Summer day and normally you eat chocolates at room temperature, but these chocolates are at their best when they come straight from the fridge. The fruity flavour melts like a smooth cocktail in your mouth. I was overwhelmed, I thought I would leave some for my sister to try but I ate them all, so good! Sorry sis. 

Top quality chocolate can only be paired with top quality ingredients. Lime with white chocolate but also with dark chocolate, I couldn't choose a favourite. Passion fruit with white chocolate and milk chocolate and mango with white chocolate, all were perfectly balanced flavours. And the chocolates with Japanese Yuzu were a real discovery too.

Next time I want the box with 36 pieces, please.


Big news in chocolate land! Pierre Marcolini has just announced that he will be collaborating with British star designer Tom Dixon. The special edition chocolates will be in the shops from September on. Two creative souls that meet. 
An exclusive box in Tom Dixon's trademark style will be filled with a fantastic range of grand cru chocolates. And there is more: they didn't stop with chocolates, there will be a box of macarons too.

Don't even think about buying me flowers next time you see me. This girl only wants chocolates, poupoudiou.
