Not sure if the whole story, but these French made chocolates are artisanal like Godiva, but hopefully better... first bite is very promising. More to come, @ $45/lb.

I looked in many chocolate shops for 2 days in Paris and loved the authenticity and history of this shop. The chocolates were wonderful, Assortments were great gifts, and a few treats for me.👌🏼💕

A mouthwatering selection of Exquisite chocolates for the senses. I couldn't walk past this gorgeous shop, the Windows so artfully displayed. So much choice & did not disappoint the tastebuds. Traditionally picture perfect in every way, a worthwhile speciality shop with friendly staff. Would recommend.
