I'll say it straight out, this is one the prettiest chocolate box I've received so far. Can you say YUM?  And would probably be my next recommendation as the ideal gift for the ones you love wholeheartedly.  


zChocolat zBox 15

The zBox 15 brings together a selection of the best-loved recipes from our Numbered Collection. Elegantly encased in our signature black and white ballotin, it’s a beautiful way to sample some of zChocolat’s most celebrated flavors.

My Verdict 

If a firm deems itself as even remotely haute couture, then really one shouldn’t have too much doubt about it. Elegance. Intelligence. Excellence. These are what zChocolat has committed themselves to. zChocolat are made by World Champion Chocolatier & Meilleur Ouvrier de France, Pascal Caffet. While the usual gourmet variety of chocolates are commonly found in the mall, these are available on the internet and delivered worldwide at your convenience in an artisan packaging that leaves one subtly impressed by its quality from start to end. It just leaves one with the impression that although the chocolates might be delectably consumed over time, the memories remain forever.

They came in a big box layered with layered ice retainer sheets and ice slabs. I was dazed when I opened the package. Inside you will find a beautiful black pouch with zChocolat logo, their instructional manual and your very personal Vorte Message.

 The assortments is a combination of zChocolat's eleven original signature milk and dark numbered chocolates and three assortments are a combination of milk, dark and white Z chocolates. I'd never tasted such chocolate. They contain no alcohol, low sugar, no preservatives, high cocoa content, and 100% pure cocoa butter. Each piece is very different from the next and I really like that they included a little booklet telling you what each chocolate was and what was in it. 

  • Dark Z Chocolate - 70% Venezuelan dark chocolate couverture encasing a duo of a lush caramel and crunchy praliné: the caramel is sweet and salty with Bourbon Vanilla from Madagascar, the praliné is composed from slowroasted Piedmont hazelnuts. 
  • White Z Chocolate - Velvety white chocolate couverture encasing a duo of a lush caramel and crunchy praliné: the caramel is sweet and salty with Bourbon Vanilla from Madagascar, the praliné is composed from slow-roasted Piedmont hazelnuts.
  • Milk Z Chocolate - 40% Ivory Coast milk chocolate couverture encasing a duo of a lush caramel and crunchy praliné: the caramel is sweet
    and salty with Bourbon Vanilla from Madagascar, the praliné is composed from slow-roasted Piedmont hazelnuts.
  • Chocolate n°0 - Made from slow-roasted Piedmont hazelnuts, this rich praliné is surrounded by a 40% Ivory Coastmilk chocolate couverture peppered with crunchy visible bits of California almonds.
  • Chocolate n°1 - A velvety Madagascar Bourbon-Vanilla ganache, infused with a hint of Provençale lavender, enveloped in 62% Venezuelan dark chocolate with an additional 70% cover Venezuelandark chocolate couverture.
  • Chocolate n°2 - An unforgettable Italian gianduja praliné; handmade with Piedmont hazelnuts and 70% intense Venezuelan dark chocolate – surrounded by rich 40% Ivory Coastmilk chocolate.
  • Chocolate n°3 - Rich, smooth caramel intermingled with tangy passion fruit, coconut and creamy mango purée – covered in 70% Venezuelan dark chocolate.
  • Chocolate n°4 - A couverture of rich 40% Ivory Coastmilk chocolate surrounding a handmade praliné of tasty Spanish, Valencia almonds and crunchy peanuts from China.
  • Chocolate n°5 -  A rich, deeply flavored, 70% Venezuelan dark chocolate couverturemade from the Carenero Superior bean from Caracas with a 62% dark Venezuelan ganache filling.
  • Chocolate n° 6 - A balanced praliné made from slow-roasted Valencia almonds from Spain, rich 40% Ivory Coast milk chocolate, all covered with intense 70% Venezuelan dark chocolate studded with minced California almonds
  • Chocolate n°7 - Coarsely minced sweet and salty Iranian pistachios blended with a creamy pistachio-almond paste, encircled by a couverture of 40% Ivory Coast milk chocolate.
  • Chocolate n°8 - An inspired combination of finely ground caramelized hazelnuts from the Piedmont region of Italy, phyllo dough, an unctuous coffee ganache fashioned from Kenyan coffee and Maragogype coffee beans from Nicaragua (covered in a 70% Venezuelan dark chocolate).
  • Chocolate n°9 - A praliné crafted from slow-roasted caramelized Valencia almonds from Spain ground into a fine powder, mixed with milk chocolate and pure cocoa butter. All drenched in a 40% Ivory Coast milk chocolate couverture.
  • Chocolate n°10 - A dense, solid and intense 70% Venezuelan dark chocolate, generously studded with minced, crunchy Valencia almond bits. Pairs great with robust red wines.
  • Chocolate n°11 - A bite-sized dessert unto itself: fresh, seedless raspberry purée whisked with robust 70% Venezuelan dark chocolate and cocoa butter into a lavish ganache; coated with a 40% Ivory Coast milk chocolate couvertur.

The chocolates I got, simply put are delicious.  Not only are the chocolates themselves top notch,plus they make sure that the ingredients used for fillings such as fruits, caramelized almonds, or hazelnut praliné are of the finest quality. They don’t add any artificial coloring, preservatives and alcohol/ animal fat in their chocolates which is a really great thing. The major plus point is you can personalize each gift by giving them your own message, add some accessories to the packaging like heart padlock, a seal, ribbon, photos of them, and add an engraved name on the box. You can even send anonymously to your loved ones as a pleasant surprise.
