I always have to try a fancy chocolate brand to see if it is worth its sticker price, but beyond the taste, Compartes has really nailed the presentation. Based in Los Angeles, Compartes is known for its themed packaging and classic LA partnerships (like the Beverly Hills Hotel or Ice Cream Museum chocolate bars). The bars come in a variety of flavors from sophisticated, such as the Rose Wine Chocolate Bar, to a little strange such as the Vegan Kale Dark Chocolate Bar.
The chocolate bars, with fun wrappers and a variety of options, make for a great gift. I also think it would be such a cool job to come up with flavor and names for each of them. However, I think the chocolate truffles have the best taste. The truffles really show off Compartes’ skill as a chocolatier (and you can have them customized with little designs!).
