This holiday season marks the fifteenth anniversary of Martine's
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.
New Chocolate Creations
After 15 Years Still a Leader in Fresh Gourmet Chocolates
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".
About Martine's Chocolates
Martine's offerings include fresh, hand-made filled chocolates, sugar-free chocolates, a charming line of solid-chocolate Creations, as well as marzipan treats. Martine's has elevated chocolate "novelties" to a new level using high-quality chocolate to hand-mold an extensive line of solid-chocolate Creations. These come in whimsical shapes-- including a chocolate bonnet, a cornucopia, pure-bred dogs, fashion accessories and flowers. For special occasions there are elegant Wedding Favors, and a Baby Collection. For the holidays there are Santa Teddy Bears, Santa Claus, and Chanukah and Christmas Ornaments. Personalized chocolates, commissioned for private and corporate occasions are also favorites.
