You may know Vosges Haut-Chocolat for their exotic truffles. But, have their caramels graced your lips? I think that I am equally in love with the packaging for this gift as I am the flavors. I have chosen the 2-tier caramel hatbox but the 4-tier is even more impressive. The snazzy cylinder swivels out to display trays of wildly flavored caramels. It is sure to elicit a gasp of excitement from all gift recipients. This gift, as you can see, is a bit feminine in color. For the guys, try one of their new Beer + Chocolate collections. In the spirit of full disclosure, I must say that I have a close association to Vosges. I worked there for years and currently, they are one of my clients. But, that is not the reason I include them on my Whipped gift guide! Truly, I believe they offer the best chocolate gifts out there.

p.s. The little boxes of Bombalinas pictured in the upper right are for YOU to nibble while you wrap gifts. They are one of the newest Vosges products… think Bridge Mix yummified with top quality chocolate and exotic flavors.

My Gift Of Choice: Exotic Caramel Collection, $37

Why? The caramels are buttery-soft and tinged with unique flavors such as Campari and blood orange or bee pollen and honey. But, this packaging is really what earned it a place on this gift guide.
