Chocolate hounds- new ones to try

Lori SF | Jan 27, 2008 11:37 AM

Noticing new chocolate shops opening up everywhere like the soon to be one Hayes Valley.

Need to buy chocolate for some clients- curious to know which you think are superior and just ok. I am only listing local chocolatiers.

I am familiar with all the usual suspects- Scharffen Berger, Joseph Schmidt, XOX Truffles, Guittard, Recchiuti, Charles Chocolates. Wanted to know how these compare with some of the places I have not tried, such as-

poco dolce- bittersweet tiles with grey sea salts, variety of flavors..I like the blue and white simple box.

Woodhouse Chocolates- In St. Helena they look so beautiful.

Cosmic Chocolates- In Oakland, not sure about their tea and herb infused chocolate, but the others sound great. I love their branding and website, fun.

On a not local and would not buy as a gift-
Just recently tried Brown Paper Chocolates from Texas I believe are sold at Whole Foods and pretty darn good.
