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!
