Who is Serious Chocolate?
As a lifelong lover of chocolate I was fortunate to find myself living in Switzerland for three years, in the heart of Europe in a country renowned for the quality of its chocolate and within easy reach of that other Mecca of chocolate lovers – Belgium. This enabled me not only to indulge my appetite for this most delicious of confections but also to develop a discerning palate for real quality versus run-of-the-mill grades. This led me to make a study of chocolate – its origins and sources, various methods of preparation and presentation and, above all, the essentials of creating the most enjoyable taste sensations.
Now, back in the USA, I am making these offerings available through my company Serious Chocolate. Our main focus is on helping to add that touch of quality and style to the gifts and favors which complement so many social events. Even the most glittering (and expensive!) celebration can either be let down or made"just right" by the little details and these can transform the slightly disappointing into the impressive little flourish – the cherry on the cake!
Our vision is to offer a range of delicious and attractively packaged chocolate gifts, baskets and favors at prices which do not break the bank but also do not compromise quality.
In addition to providing chocolates for party favors, all of our delicious confections are available for delivery in one-half and one pound boxes for any occasion. Don't forget Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah. We also offer chocolate novelties such as chocolate shoes, chocolate flower pots, chocolate artist pallets and more.
The products and prices shown on this website are based on the range typically requested from stock. This is intended to help you make your selection before ordering. However, if you are still considering alternatives, or you have something special in mind, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We would be delighted to respond with advice and ideas which may enable us to put together just the package to suit your needs. This includes custom labels, ribbons and chocolates.
Serious Chocolate has a local customer base and wherever possible we may offer to personally deliver your order to your home or to your event venue. In most cases, delivery will be a nominal fee unless the distance requires us to make a larger charge to recover our costs. Special packaging may be required when shipping chocolate commercially due to its sensitivity to heat and cold. Delivery charges in this case will be quoted upon request.
Serious Chocolate is not responsible for missing, stolen or damaged packages after they are delivered to the address specified by the customer or for orders returned or delayed due to incorrect or undeliverable addresses. We are not responsible for shipping delays while your product is in transit due to weather, strike, mechanical failure, or circumstances beyond our control, and are not able to offer refunds for those reasons.
Under normal circumstances, we do not take returns. Every item we sell is carefully inspected before it is shipped. However, if merchandise is defective or damaged upon receipt, please contact us immediately after your package arrives. We will only accept product for return if they unopened (seal is in tact) and in absolutely new, unused, and uneaten condition.
