Sweet treats

 

Concept Store 10 Corso Como Seoul has launched a limited edition series of chocolates decorated with literally love-ly graphics to celebrate the Year of the Rat. 10 Corso Como Seoul’s “Valentine Chocolate 2020 Edition” comes in a gorgeous box wrapped with a ribbon and decorated inside and out in pink, white and red, the chocolates spelling out the word “LOVE” in an adorable font to maximize the romantic vibe. The 16 chocolates themselves are a combination of dark and white with a little cognac added (0.8%) for extra flavor.

Beaker has collaborated with famed French chocolatier Au Chat Bleu to launch a series of chocolate boxes of different sizes. Au Chat Bleu, started by 2 sisters in the French village of Le Touquet in 1912 and named for their blue toned Persian cat, makes artisanal dark and milk chocolates combined with nougat to give a unique mouthfeel. Beaker now presents delightfully wrapped “Mini Chat Bleu” packages of 2, 4, 6 or 15 pieces.

Beaker director Song Tae-geun says, “This year for Valentine’s season we decided to prepare some unique and special gifts that aren’t easy to find elsewhere, rather than the stale old chocolate brands we see year after year. We hope that these Au Chat Bleu chocolates that capture the romance of France and can be a gift that will open the heart of your beloved.”
