The San Francisco Chocolate Factory recently sent me an assortment of their chocolates to sample, enjoy and review. I've certainly done the first two steps, and now it's time to tell you what I think of them!

First off, I have to say I was impressed with the care given to shipping these chocolates. I know it can be tricky to send chocolate in warmer weather, and many companies just won't ship in the spring and summer. However, The San Francisco Chocolate Factory takes extra precautions, so you can get your chocolate year-round. My shipment arrived in perfect condition, carefully thermal-wrapped and boxed. Also, the actual chocolate tins were in excellent shape, a nice extra since I plan on using them around the house now they they are empty.

The Coffee Lover's Chocolate Signature Tins carry a beautifully design graphic (click the link here to see it) that I quite like. The chocolate arrived in perfect condition, showing no signs of melting during shipping. The soft, creamy little disks make a perfect nibble with a good cup of coffee, just as they are intended to be. I think they would also make a fine substitute for the mint baking disks that are sometimes hard for me to find when I want to bake Starlight Mint Surprise Cookies, as they are just the right size and shape to hide inside this or other similar cookies.

The got milk? chocolate comes in a cute cow-spotted tin, and if you love your chocolate very smooth and creamy, you'll really enjoy this one. The chocolate drops simply melt on your tongue, and leave a very pleasant aftertaste.

If you're looking for something different in corporate promotions or gifts, the San Francisco Chocolate Factory can custom-imprint tins with your own design. They also offer another plan for customers who want to order smaller quantities that utilizes a labeling system, rather than imprinting. This would be a fun idea for a wedding - I can just see personalized tins of chocolates waiting by each place setting at a reception!

Now that I've savored the taste of these chocolates, I'm sure it won't be long before I give in to trying some of the other products that keep taunting me at the website. The Double Chocolate Vodka Earthquake Cake keeps catching my eye, as do some of the very dark 'wine-lovers chocolates'. I think relaxing with a good glass of wine and some dark chocolate would be an evening very well spent. If the dark chocolates are as good as the milk chocolates, I know I won't be disappointed.

I have to give the San Francisco Chocolate Factory a very hearty, chocolate-covered thumbs up, for excellent taste, careful shipping, and pretty packaging! Give them a try!
