To suit people who have different tastes, we offer a variety of other picks, including ornate little flavor bombs, chocolates that evoke composed desserts, single-origin ganaches, and a vegan, nut-free assortment.
Though the Richart Initiation box contains a rainbow of flavors, the chocolates themselves are practically identical in appearance. For someone who enjoys a variety of sizes and styles yet still craves a thrilling gastronomic experience, the Recchiuti chocolates would be a better choice.
Also, the Richart Initiation box is precious but petite. If you wish to upgrade to a larger version, the next size up contains 49 filled chocolates and 36 squares and is more than double the price. What this box lacks in heft, however, it makes up for in pleasure. Finally, at about $180 a pound, these chocolates are the most expensive of our picks, and even more so when you factor in the additional cost of shipping directly from France (unless you spend $90 or more, in which case shipping is free). But we think the vibrancy of these chocolates makes them a worthy splurge for a special occasion.
In each round (except in 2021 and 2022, when tastings had to happen individually due to the pandemic), we cut the chocolates into pieces so that more than one person could taste all of the offerings while also avoiding palate fatigue. Though this may sound like a silly problem, it can be quite frustrating when your taste buds become overstimulated and fail you mid-tasting. In an attempt to minimize this, we encouraged testers to pace themselves and cleanse their palates with saltines and club soda.

These went very well with the Hallmark movie they were designed for, \"Sweeter than Chocolate\". We watched the movie and waited for the right time to take our bite, near the end (you'll know when you watch), and it was lovely and perfect. Please pair more movies with chocolates so I have more excuses to buy Bissinger's. Really, if you thought these chocolates were good, you've only scratched the surface of what Bissinger's has to offer! Try any of their caramels, petit fours, chocolate-dipped fruit, anything really. I find their milk chocolate to be the best I've ever tasted, and I have tasted a LOT. Go forth and taste!
