William Dean/Jacque Torres Chocolates Review

My husband has never been much for romancing, so I’m always a little sad around Valentine’s Day when everyone around me is getting jewelry and chocolates. Trust me you dudes out there–we want to be pampered and made to feel especially special on this one day of the year. But that’s not to say that you get a free pass for the rest of the year!

I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to try some chocolate samples from HSN’s Jacques Torres and William Dean. I’d never heard of either of these fine gentleman before, but the descriptions of their bon bons and unique chocolates were mouthwatering, and I simply had to try them for myself.

The day the chocolates arrived, I was ecstatic. I was planning on just taking a little nibble from each chocolate so that I could savor them over a few days, but before even an hour had gone by, each and every chocolate had been devoured.

I received 6 pieces of chocolate from the William Dean collection, and 2 from the Jacques Torres. I’d love to eventually try more from the Torres collection, but I am a fan for life of William Dean. All I can say is the ladies in these men’s lives are incredibly lucky!

When it comes to chocolate, I’ve never been much for other flavors mingled with the chocolate, but it always depends on the product. For one example, there is this gorgeous William Dean chocolate shaped like a butterfly that is flavored with lavender. It was one of my favorite pieces! While you might think that they are too beautiful to eat and couldn’t possibly taste good, you’d be so very wrong. You won’t be able to help yourself!

If you really want to make a lasting impression this Valentine’s Day, treat your special someone to chocolates by William Dean and Jacques Torres. They are divine!
