If you cannot go to chocolates, chocolates will come to you is the very idea behind Chocolak.com – A newly launched online website delivering the best of chocolates from around the world specifically Italy at this point. Never having heard of it before, but will be seeing more of it from now on was what I was thinking when I first saw the website itself. Currently carrying Vestri – A great chocolate factory tradition that bases itself on the products’ peculiarity while challenging the taste. The Vestri family in order to guarantee quality production, for various years has been living an adventure, perhaps the most beautiful, acquiring a cocoa plantation (finca) in the Dominican Republic, where the vicinity of the sea, the surrounding mountainous system, the micro-climate and the relative humidity are the ideal conditions for the growth of the cabosse (cocoa seeds). Some of the most valuable species of cocoa are selected here. For over thirty years Vestri has been transforming this precious fruit conquering anywhere the hearts of men, women and children. Now, that is some chocolate isn’t it?
They will be carrying more giftable chocolates over the coming months but for now, they are off to a good start with Vestri I would say. I had the chance to get my hands on Vestri’s Lovebites Perle Di Toscana and Mediterraneo. They reached me within two days of ordering.I placed my order on Friday, and I had it with me by Monday. It came packed with ice packs so that the chocolate stayed cold which is really cool. My chocolates were intact although they were being flown between two countries which isn’t exactly known for the best weather. Chocolak.com is based in Dubai, and I had my chocolates shipped to Doha.
The lovebites that I ordered as soon as I opened the box, and the packaging – the aroma that whiffed my way had me longing to already finish them off, but, hey there’s this hard part when you are blogging – you need to be patient until you finish with the pictures before you can give in to your thoughts, and wants. And, when I did finish them and took a bite of the chocolate, I knew I had made a wise choice, and the wait was worth it. Mediterraneo is a dark chocolate bar which I basically ordered for Mr. M because am more a milk chocolate person than anything else – not dark, nor white – milk chocolate always!
The packaging is so beautiful – makes for great festive gifts. The chocolates are amazing!
