So if it's chocolate you're after......

Check out some of the incredible local chocolate makers we have close by.

COCO - crafted organic chocolates, is a new on-line chocolate retailer. Deborah Torr opened her proverbial doors just before Christmas with some amazing offerings! She knows Santa personally, I'm not exactly sure what the connection is, but they worked together making hollow chocolate Santa's with a note from the man himself inside! To say that they were 'sinfully delicious chocolates' is an understatement!

For Valentine's Day Deborah is offering a Lattice Chocolate Box filled w/hugs & kisses truffles. She is also offering a 'For the Love of School' pack: 20 bags of milk chocolate Valentines shapes plus a heart lolly for the Teacher! It would be great for the team at work too! Deborah's got Heart Bark and Heart Lolly's in milk and dark chocolate too! The candied orange peels are kissed with dark chocolate! ahhhh!

Soma makes truffles, baicoli, tozetti, baci d'alassio and so much more.
Soma has a permanent collection of bars, and also make microbatch bars. They have a fabulous selection of 'elixirs'.
There is the collection of chocolate tumbled nuts, fruits, seeds & beans...
Delight combines whimsy and decadence along with a creative attention to detail, not to mention a flair for the finest tastes and textures. Their fabulous chocolate is coupled with the decision to support a sustainable form of agriculture as well as the farmers who manage it.   Valentine's boxes of chocolates – extra-dark, vanilla rose, hot 'n' spicy, coffee caramel; dark chocolate hearts with chocolate drizzle; ice wine truffles.
I can't say I have tested all the products on 100 Mile Finds, there are just too many.  I can vouch for these ones though! There is nothing quite like freshly made quality chocolate.  Think local, independent and artisanal  this Valentines Day.  And let us know about your favourite chocolateur - there's always room for more.
