This holiday season marks the fifteenth anniversary of Martine's Chocolates, one of the nation's most highly acclaimed brands. To celebrate this milestone, owner and founder Martine Leventer has commissioned a collectible limited-edition 15th Anniversary Keepsake Box in which to present her acclaimed hand-made gourmet chocolates. Also, just in time for the holidays, Martine's unveils her newly redesigned web site which makes browsing and shopping directly online even easier.

The 15th Anniversary Keepsake Box:
A Work Of Art

New York based artist Nancy George-Michalson was commissioned by Martine to create this colorful New York skyline, softly glowing against a dramatic sky, in shades of pink. Each box cover is hand-painted and signed by the artist. The box holds 9 chocolates, which can be hand picked A La Carte by the customer. The box itself can be used as a precious Christmas Tree ornament, as a keepsake box, or displayed as a very unique New York souvenir. After the sweets have been enjoyed, the box remains to delight for years to come.

New Chocolate Creations

Chocolate lovers will be delighted to find Martine's Chocolates' stores and her newly redesigned website filled with her popular favorites (radiant Menorahs, cute colorful Santa Bears, delicious purebred dogs) as well as new holiday delights:

  • Heart-Shaped Ornaments
  • Chocolate Tartelettes
  • Candied Ginger Dipped in Chocolate
  • Almond Bark
  • Sugar-Free Almond Bark
  • Chocolate Bloomingdale's Credit Cards, a tribute to the home of her flagship store at Bloomingdale's in Manhattan, and America's favorite pastime: shopping!

After 15 Years Still a Leader in Fresh Gourmet Chocolates

Little did owner Martine Leventer realize when she left her job as a successful business editor for a leading news magazine in France that she would go on to play a key role in the coming chocolate wave in America, helping introduce fine chocolates to this market.

She began with the creation of a unique chocolate shop concept in this country, installing an atelier at Bloomingdale's where customers can watch chocolates being made fresh by hand every day right in front of their eyes, and enjoy the rich aromas wafting through the store.

Fifteen years later, Martine's Chocolates continues to be one of the most highly-acclaimed brands. The 2008 Zagat Survey recognizes Martine's quality by bestowing their highest rating - a 29 - for "excellence." Other kudos include: Top Ten rated in USA Today and Chocolatier Magazine, Number One in America rated in a blind tasting by a leading national consumer magazine, and inclusion in The O List in Oprah Magazine, among others. According to Matthew Stephens of Chocolatier magazine,"the number of artisan chocolatiers has grown exponentially in the past five years, and Martine has been a pioneer in the evolution of fine chocolate in America".
