Peachy's Pantry: Whom You Know Highly Recommends "Live by Love" Chocolate Truffle Gift Box, "Spring Collection" Chocolate Truffle Gift Box, and "Winter Collection" Chocolate Truffle Gift Box by Milene Jardine! We are Proud to Kick Off Coverage of Milène Jardine Chocolatier!

We love chocolate.
No, love is not a strong enough word.
We'll have to invent a new word, and we'll be back to you on that.
Have you ever met anyone that didn't like chocolate?
And, do you trust them?!?!
We're glad you trust us.
We do not meet a lot of chocolate we do not like, but the degree of liking a brand has more shades of gray-or dark brown- than you'd ever imagine. We've spent nearly 22,000 posts and eight years defining degrees of excellence, and Milene Jardine has raised our standards of chocolate liking. Without a doubt, Peachy Deegan likes luxury dark chocolate the best and has demonstrated a high affinity for chocolate since birth and definitely adored it before the adoration could be verbalized.  Peachy is a proud chocoholic and never wants to recover. We won't have to because it's not who you know, it's WHOM YOU KNOW. We know Milene (really-they have met in person thank you Domenico Vacca and your elevator. Very few people ever meet Peachy in person prior to being evaluated), and our panel could not be happier.  Peachy loved the whiskey/whisky (we have readers from different countries) sea salt.  Does life get better than that?  No.  It lives up to its name of Serenity.

We tried and loved equally:

The shorter days and longer nights provide an opportunity to relax and prepare for the year ahead. The chocolates contain the finest natural ingredients: Valhrona chocolate from France, fresh cream and butter. Each navy box is hand packed, tied with a silver bow and includes an insert describing each truffle flavor’s unique story and inspiration. Each box includes: 3 pcs of Celestial: Lava Salt/Licorice/Evergreen (Iceland) 2 pcs of Puriste: Dark Chocolate (France). 

Milene Jardine chocolates are a feast for all of your senses. They arrive lavishly wrapped: the aroma of the sumptuous chocolates wafting from the box as it is opened. These truffles will appeal to those with a discriminating palate, containing exotic flavors not found at your typical chocolate factory. The crunchy outer shell is complemented by the smooth, creamy fillings that emit small bursts of flavor as you savor them on your tongue. Open a bottle of your finest wine and indulge in the Live By Love collection of chocolates. This was my favorite gift box due to the variety of chocolates included and the richness of the flavors. My favorite chocolates overall include Tradition, Serenity, Sakura, and Celestial, but it was ever so hard to narrow it down to just a few when they are all so delicious. 

I guess in my life looking back I never really had good or even tasted great chocolates until now. Thank God for people like Milene Jardine who followed her passion in life…  
The box is outstanding and beautifully designed.
Each box includes:
1 Tradition: Harvey Wallbanger: 100% goodness all around. Honestly, it’s a guilty pleasure! I never had Chocolate like this before but needless to say its chocolate rich and flavorful...

1 Sanctuary: Ginger/ Turmeric/ Black Pepper: Once you bite into this your mouth revels the pepper and the sweetness. Creamy and smooth flavor. One of my favorite truffles. Irresistible classic...
1 Goddess: Hibiscus/ Mint: Impressed with the mint taste. Just the right ratio of mint and Hibiscus. Nothing compares to the taste period! You have to try it for yourself.

1 Puriste: Dark Chocolate: A Dark Chocolate lover's dream comes true. So smooth and creamy, incredible chocolate flavor. Wonderful!!

1 Serenity: Whiskey/ Sea Salt: The best of the bunch. I was taught to share but not with this one. Such sweetness... Big win in my book!  My chocolate cravings are satisfied…

Someone said eating chocolate actually triggers the release of endorphins in our brains, creating a sense of calming joy, and Milene was clearly born to do this.  

All 5 truffles in each box I very so much enjoyed. Each box is so detailed ribbon; hand packed it also includes an insert describing each truffle…every detail is covered.  
If you’re looking for some unbelievable chocolate for yourself or a loved one maybe as a gift please trust me when I say Milene Jardine makes the best. Prove me wrong!
