What do I give people who don't need a thing? I head to my go-to chocolate haunt: Vosges Haut-Chocolat on Armitage in Chicago. Maybe I'll start calling it "Haunt-Chocolat". Not only is it superior chocolate, but the deep purple packaging is so, so beautiful.
At the shop I treated myself to some Red Fire ice cream -- I had never tried it before, but I love the Aztec collection truffles and the Red Fire toffee and tortilla chips. Let's just say it delivered. It was fantastic. Vosges serves it in a take-out container -- another signature packaging move.
And for the gift, a nine-piece box of the springtime Fleurs collection truffles for my sister who is graduating with her Masters. A wow sursie for Mother's Day, too.
