I forgot to post my review of these when I first got them (months ago) but I just wanted to say that I truly enjoyed these chocolates! Each and every flavor tasted so interestingly unique and flavorful, the only disappointment was that the box and flavors seemed to go so fast!
GORGEOUS choccy's and shipping was exceeded my expectations.
Wishing you the Best and lots of Success!
Commenting late, but I absolutely love the chocolate. I wish I had a LOT more. I think im going to request some hot chocolate mix and some of your larger bars of my favorite flavors out of the variety pack for my birthday from my boyfriend...
Everything was delicious and now im spoiled.
Lee & Barb - You can stop by the shop any time were open (12pm - 6pm weekdays, and 10am - 4pm Sat, but closed this Monday for the holiday). Address is 76 S. Washington St. #104, Seattle WA 98104.
No rush, stop by at your convenience. If you'll need us to ship just let us know. Thank you!
For those of us local's how do we go about picking up in person?
Thanks guys! What a super treat to receive on V-Day. Great flavours and swank new packaging. Must swing by when I'm in Seattle in April to get gifts.
Also wanted to chime in and say I received my chocolate just in time for Valentine's and reviews all agreed that they were terrific! The new packaging looks wonderful and very classy as well.
As a fellow Washingtonian I'm thrilled the project went so well, too bad I don't get to drop by Seattle very often though!
So happy to see everyone is enjoying their chocolate!
I got my package yesterday for V-Day and I must say I am very pleased w/ the chocolate. Although small in size each chocolate packed a major punch and had me wanting more. I really enjoyed the Damiana, Jamaican Hot Chocolate (oh how spicy), the Sweet Raspberry and the Pear and Lavender. I look forward to buying more chocolates.
Chocolates arrived beautifully, very delicious and the variety is so playful. I've been sharing them and love seeing who selects what... The new packaging looks terrific and it was a pleasure to be a part of the process! Much success to you!!
Received my chocolates this morning, hand-delivered by Karl (who works in the office literally right next to mine). Thanks and best wishes for continued success for Intrigue!
Received my package just in time for Valentine's Day. Package looks gorgeous, but can't taste them since it's a gift :(
Thank you for the perfect timing!
Just received my chocolate. I WILL be a repeat customer. The new boxes are beautiful... and the contents... well, my wife and I had to agree to share each one. The flavors are amazing, the variety and complexity is astonishing. Thank you for such an incredible treat. You guys are incredible.
::drool:: I must make more Jiva coffee, with a scoop of Intrigue cocoa mix. Intrigue cafe mocha goodness!
Awesome Liz! We're thrilled that a) you received the chocolate without any hiccups, and b) that you are enjoying it so much. Thank you for the kind words. If you feel like getting adventurous with the cocoa, try putting a spoonful in a cup of coffee. ::grin::
I got my package today! Absolutely love the hot cocoa mix! I can't get enough of it. So decedant and delicious! Really enjoying the T-shirt too, don't want to take it off! Soft, comfy, and stylish! Really long too, it can be belted, or worn alone over leggings. If you're short like me, makes for a nice shirt sleep in as well. Very versatile!
You did a wonderful job with your chocolate products, don't stop what you're doing. I need to come visit your store when we get moved to Seattle and settled in, to thank you properly for your amazing products.
Funny that you should mention Jiva. I was a backer to their first project that was successfully funded! Their cubes are fantastic. I'm a huge coffee addict and coffee snob. Their coffee cubes have a smooth and rich taste! Not bitter, or overpowering. I still have a whole box of the stronger coffee cubes I'm using. If you love coffee, then you should try their cubes sometime. They have such an innovative approach to coffee and now possibly hot cocoa, they made me a believer of anything in a cube form! Can't wait to see how the Jiva hot chocolate and mocha cubes turn out, next.
New space looks amaaaazing!
It just occurred to me per Paul's comment that many of you will be giving the class signups as a gift this holiday season. I owe you something to make sure you are all set for the 25th! More to come before the weekend is up, promise.
Hey Paul! Thanks for the comment. I am long overdue for providing a mass update, but here's the skinny:
- You should have already received a survey for fulfillment information. (For anyone taking classes, I'll send that out to you once we have some dates available.)
- Kitchen build out was completed successfully last month.
- We are on track to deliver for the February timeline.
- Prototypes look great, and I'll post those in our next update shortly.
Unfortunately this isn't going to ship our for Christmas, but you will be all set come Valentines Day!
Shoot me a note if you have any questions.
Have not heard form you in regards to rewards. With Christmas around the corner I would like to put something under the tree for my wife. I am looking forward to the day see gets to spend with you. I know she will enjoy it! Hope all s going well with your business.
February seems so far away! It's a shame chocolate can't speed up time. :D Thanks for getting the survey and tshirt size emails taken care of. And now, I play the waiting game. :)
Hey Ken's Lil' Sister - I've replied to you privately via message. If anyone else has this same issue, shoot me an email too. Thank you!
Hey Karl, there wasn't any place for me to submit the size for my tee.
Glad to have gotten the survey out of the way early, now just have to wait for February to get here!
Correct Ada, thank you much!
OK great! Up-ed my pledge to $50 and will send a note to the contact me section.
I get a T-shirt as well yes? So excited that you guys are all funded up! :)
Hi Ada, I'd be happy to do that for you! I do worry about missing a special order during fulfillment though. If we go this route, please just keep in mind you may need to be a little more patient with us when we're sending out chocolate. :)
Also, it would be helpful if you sent me a not from the contact in our profile, which I'm using as a home-base for any of these special orders.
I just backed you with the "I'm allergic to dairy..." reward!
How do I do two of these? I'd like to try 2 hot chocolate mixes and have 2 cocoa bean packages.
Can I just increase my pledge to $50 and you'll know? (There doesn't seem to be a comment section anywhere...)
Thanks again for the fast response to my question, I am very "intrigued" to see how these exotic flavored truffles actually taste!
Thanks everybody! FUNDED!!!
Congratulations! Glad to put you over the top!
Oh my, those look fabulous! This is going to be a most excellent Valentine's Day!
Hey Holly, thanks for the comment! We make flavors as we find them for each month: what's in the spice shops, what we find at the farmer's markets, or what we're feeling for the season. In the past for February we've kept favorites in the lineup like Basil, Coffee, and a Peruvian origin called Fortunato #4. Other likely flavors are Rose Petal, and the aphrodisiac Damiana. Here's a list of what we put together for February 2012: http://intriguechocolates.com/blog/4/february-truffle-flavors/
This looks to be mighty tasty! Just out of curiosity, what flavor of truffles will you be making? I'm intrigued!
