Valentine’s Day is probably the chocolate industry’s major events of the entire year, but we don’t often see a great package of creativity entering Valentine’s products. There happen to be countless heart-shaped chocolates in crimson packaging, but it’s exceptional to see much interest paid out to the flavors themselves.
This collection from Paul A caught my attention partly since it appears fabulous (Paul’s chocolates always do), but mainly for the idea and focus on detail which has gone into creating it. The motif of the collection is romantic city destinations, hence the initial thing Paul and his workforce is to create a set of locations that both had intimate connotations and distinctive flavors that would function in a bar of chocolate. That probably ruled Cleethorpes and Slough (two of my preferred chocolate destinations) out from the start.
