Donna & Company is a small, independently owned company specializing if the making of fine chocolates. When I received an email from Diane, the Chocolatier and founder of Donna & Company, saying that she was finalizing the recipes for the Valentine’s Day Collection, I knew I was about to receive something very special. Of course I knew they would be delicious, but I honestly had no idea just extraordinary Donna & Company Artisinal Chocolates really are.
I received a beautifully packaged red charm box with a window, that was tied in a pretty red and white bow. By the beautiful packaging and a peek at the chocolates through the window, I was eager to gobble up the little beauties. But I refrained from my instinctive gluttony and took the time to really savor each piece of chocolate.
The Valentine’s Day Collection includes the following fine chocolates:
Rose Heart: White chocolate ganache flavored with rose oil, cardamon and roasted pistachio. In a white chocolate heart decorated with red coloring
Absinthe: All dark chocolate ganache flavored with Absinthe and decorated with a dark chocolate heart and 24 carat gold flakes.
Vanilla Grapefruit heart: Milk chocolate with Vanilla bean, fresh grapefruit, and Campari- in a heart mold and decorated with dark chocolate stripes
Hibiscus caramel and vanilla honey ganache: dark chocolate heart shell, with tow layers inside- a hibiscus caramel and vanilla honey ganache. The shell is decorated with white chocolate
Passion Fruit honey butter: dark chocolate heart with white chocolate passion fruit ganache, dark chocolate shell decorated with white chocolate stripe
As you can see from the descriptions, these are not your average run-of-the-mill chocolates. The flavor combinations and ingredients of these chocolates is so unique. I honestly don’t think I can choose a favorite from the collection, because each piece was so amazing! Each piece of chocolate is so completely different. I never knew you could capture so many wonderful and complex flavors in a little bite.
If you want to treat yourself to something very unique and special or really ‘wow’ someone for Valentine’s Day, try Donna & Company’s fine artisinal chocolates.
You can fine Donna & Company at Whole Foods Market and select retailers throughout the NorthEastern United States, or purchase directly on their web site.

These chocolates look irresistible. What caught my attention was the Absinthe flavor with the gold flakes. I have never had such a combination and I can not wait to try it.
The Valentine Heart sounds lovely! I love chocolate. Thanks for sharing this company with me. I love Whole Foods too, so I will make a point to look for this brand the next time I am there.
I love chocolate but sometimes fancy flavors are too much for me. These sound intriguing though!
