Things I like: Fran’s Chocolates

IMG_6335

To be honest, “like” is an understatement.  It would just be a little weird if I were to wax poetic about how much I *love* Fran’s Chocolates.  I was first introduced to Fran’s when my brother-in-law and his wife moved to Seattle almost a decade ago.  Courtney would put together these amazingly packaged and incredibly gorgeous Pacific Northwest food baskets around the holidays, and Fran’s Peppermint Truffles were a mainstay.  Needless to say, the day the food basket arrived on our front porch was always a very happy day in our household.

Everything about a Fran’s chocolate is perfection, and it all starts with the packaging, which is sophisticated and complimented by a gorgeous satin ribbon.  Just getting a box of Fran’s feels like a special occasion!  The chocolates themselves are smooth and delectable and it is very clear that the folks at Fran’s pay attention to every last detail – from gold leaf, to oolong fragment, to chocolate swirl.

Why am I telling you about Fran’s now?  Valentine’s Day is coming and you don’t want to miss your chance to special order your loved ones these chocolates!!  All I can say is move over Godiva, there’s a new chocolate in town!
