"Judging from a professional chefs window- I pay attention to shine, snap, melt, and residue and flavor as well as packaging. I found the flavor infusions of SoCola CLEAN and layered with flavor. Most of the applicants were stunning , however- Socola stood out in all my criteria- and the taste fillings -WOW! I left there not remembering their name but remembered the taste sensations I experienced at their table. Nice packaging and good story. You can tell they apply lots of classic methods and science behind the product. I never purchase chocolate but I will purchase Socola!"

"Socola's Cognac Truffle is the perfect 'after dinner drink"... dark chocolate with cognac ganache...!!"
