It’s true, there is more to Caputo’s than cheese and meat. There is chocolate. Not just any chocolate, mind you, fine chocolate reigns supreme here and we are proud of the selection Matt has painstakingly chosen over the years.
Hopefully, some of you have been to Matt’s famous- or infamous, depending on who you speak to- Intro to Fine Chocolate. It is truly life-altering. The class befuddles, then amazes, then changes your life. Forget everything you know about chocolate, the real deal lies on the shelves here at Caputo’s.
Of the many extraordinary brands we carry, Amedei is easily one of our top sellers. Based in Pisa, Italy, Amedei has won numerous awards and is arguably the best fine chocolate producer in the world. Their beans are sourced from all over the world, each bar is produced by hand, and each bar is of the highest quality. With such high regard, it’s no surprise Amedei’s filled chocolate are just as good as their single origin bars.
Amedei’s filled chocolates are given just a much TLC as their bars. The shell is created in the same manner as their bars and the fillings are all made in house as well. Amedei’s belief is that only the highest quality ingredients will suffice. With only the best ingredients come the best filled chocolates, of course. And who would want anything else (cough, anniversary gift, cough).
These make excellent gifts, that is, if you can part with these boxes once they come home with you. The flavors are temptation enough to reconsider giving it away and stashing it somewhere for yourself: hazelnut cream, walnut and orange, wine flower and grappa, and macaroon are among my favorites. Yes, I was the child that took a bite out of each chocolate and only ate my favorites.
The proof is in the pudding…or underneath a thin layer of chocolate in this case. You can buy them from our online store here or tease yourself into coming down to the store to get a good look at them in person. You will not be disappointed; however, you may be addicted for life (insert the despised hashtag #sorrynotsorry).
Enjoy, and feel free to share!
