Possibly the most successful marriage other than cheese and wine, is flowers and chocolate - and Blush Flowers is now offering both.
However, this isn't just your average purple-hued, supermarket-bound choccie, prepare to meet your perfect match with luxury chocolatier, Compartes. Following their inception in 1950s Los Angeles, the brand has since grown to encompass a cult following of chocolate obsessives.
For the unfamiliar, the Compartes label comprises handmade, gourmet chocolates that recruit an array of delicious and unique ingredients. Not only are they sure to make your palate sing, but they're aesthetically pleasing too. And yes, we can confirm they taste as good as they look!
A popular choice among Hollywood's elite, Compartes was a firm favourite of Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe in the '50s, and have since featured in the pantries of Brad and Angelina, and Gwyneth Paltrow, in recent years.
Just in time for Christmas, Compartes chocolate bars (RRP$17) will be available at Blush from November onwards.
Their flavoursome new selection includes:
The Blonde Bombshell – Dark chocolate with strawberries and champagne.
Golden Gatsby – White chocolate blended with sea salt caramel and a touch of butterscotch.
Mexican Hot Chocolate – Dark chocolate with a kick of spicy cayenne pepper and cinnamon.
California Love – Crushed salted pretzel in dark chocolate.
Roses & Rosé – A PINK chocolate bar infused with rosé wine and decked out with edible, crystalized rose petals.
Pina Colada – Milk chocolate infused with pineapples, coconut (milk, water AND pulp) and the finest Jamaican Rum.
Tropical Paradise – Dark chocolate sprinkled with coconut chips and delicious Hawaiian macadamia nuts.
Let Them Eat Cake – Made with vanilla and finished with the required birthday sprinkles.
