I bought a bar for a gift to someone that is picky about chocolate. He said he loved the taste and that they put on package the dates for best consumption. He really liked it!

The Sirene chocolate bars are amazing!! These hard-to-find, small batch bars have a rich, deep flavor. I had the privilege of attending one of Valerie's chocolate tastings some months back - an incredible experience - so I knew that anything she recommended would be fantastic. It arrived quickly and with beautiful packaging. Exceeded my expectations!
