In January 2023, Wirecutter by the New York Times named our Large Gift Set, which they called "a chocolate lover's dream" and "a true crowd pleaser," to the publication's list of best gift baskets in the country. The gift set includes our Baby Grand, Caramel Box, Almond Toffee Treats, two jars of Seasonal Preserves, 72% Bittersweet Chocolate Bar, and a Rice & Sesame Chocolate Bar.
Wirecutter supervising editor Marilyn Ong said, "I don't think I realized toffee could be this perfectly executed. There's a satisfying crunch to it, and then it melts away.
We both now measure every chocolate by Valerie standards. Absolutely delicious and savory chocolate.
