Chuao Chocolatier

I know there have been a few posts on the California board regarding Chuao chocolates, but I wanted to spread the word. These are really excellent artisinal chocolates, based in the greater San Diego area. I've tried many brands: XOX, Maison du Chocolat, Mariebelle, Recchiuti, Martine's (at Bloomingdales in NYC), LA Burdick and Chuao is by far my favorite -- the highlights for me are the praline based confections (gianduja, almond and hazelnut praline, almond truffle) and the fruit/caramel concoctions (passion fruit-caramel, brown sugar-banana-caramel, strawberry-balsamic-caramel). I urge anyone looking to expand their chocolate base to try Chuao -- the website doesn't allow you to pick and choose your flavor selections, but if you call, they'll customize your box for you.
