Does Katrina make the chocolates?
Katrina develops all recipes and oversees production of Vosges products.

Are Vosges Haut-Chocolat chocolates hand-rolled?
Some are hand-rolled, others go through depositing and enrobing lines. In addition, all of the toppings are hand placed on each truffle. For example, the Viola truffles have candied flowers that are all hand placed.

What is your base chocolate?
We use a variety of chocolates as Katrina likes to pair different chocolates with specific ingredients (e.g. spices, herbs, roots), and works tirelessly with our vendors to create proprietary blends of ethically sourced chocolate of the highest taste and quality.

What does infuse mean?
A synonym for infuse is steep, to mingle something dry with something wet with the idea of extracting the flavor of the dry ingredient. You do this when you pour boiling water over tea leaves. The same concept holds true when you infuse/steep an ingredient into cream. It is then mixed with the chocolate to make the soft ganache.

What is an emulsion?
An emulsion is a liquid or semi-solid in which globules of fat are evenly distributed throughout. An example is ganache or mayonnaise, butter etc.

What makes these chocolates different than other truffles?
We use only fresh and natural ingredients without any preservatives and only the finest chocolate. We use exotic ingredients from all around the world in our truffles and haut-chocolat.

What are fresh cream truffles?
The ganache centers are made with fresh cream instead of oils or other preservatives.

What is ganache?
It is an emulsion of chocolate and cream.

How do they all look so perfectly shaped?
Katrina, the chocolatier, loves the perfectly round, voluptuous shape of a truffle. So, we use round molds for the insides of the truffles before we enrobe them in chocolate and hand top them.

Where are the truffles made?
Our Corporate office, factory and warehouse are all located in the same building in Chicago.

Do you use any organic ingredients?
Yes, we use as many organic ingredients as possible! Certain collections are certified organic, too.

Are descriptions of the truffles included in the truffle boxes?
Yes, all of our truffle boxes have a map, which tells you which truffle you are eating, and a booklet with truffle descriptions and stories about the collections.

Can you explain the shelf life of your products?
“Shelf life” refers to the length of time the product will remain fresh once we ship it. The Rooster truffle in our Collezione Italiano will remain fresh for 10 days. The remaining truffle collections have a shelf life of 14 days. All Vosges Haut-Chocolat truffles should be stored in the refrigerator until ready to enjoy. For the best tasting experience, bring truffles to room temperature before indulging. Other product shelf lives are as follows: Caramel Toffee and Exotic Caramels, 8 weeks; Caramel Marshmallows, 14 days; Exotic Chocolate Bars, 12-15 months. You may store these products at room temperature (ideally 67-69 degrees Fahrenheit).

Why is your chocolate so expensive?
We use the finest ingredients and the highest quality chocolate in all of our products. Many of our ingredients are exotic and come from all over the world. In addition, we do not use any preservatives in our chocolate, only fresh cream, chocolate, and spices. Our products also require a great deal of care, which can be costly.

Which truffles contain alcohol?
Absinthe, Ambrosia and Chef Pascal in the Exotic Collection; Platanos y Orchidus in Les Fleurs du Chocolat Collection; Hip Hop and Rhythm & Blues in the Groove Collection; all truffles in the Irish Chocolate Stout and Champagne Truffle Collections.

Do your products have partially-hydrogenated fats or oils?
No, we use all natural ingredients, which means no hydrogenated or partially-hydrogenated fats or oils.

What allergens are contained in your products?
All of our products with chocolate contain soy lecithin, which is an emulsifier, preventing the cocoa butter from separating from the cocoa mass. Individual products may contain tree nuts, coconut, milk or gluten. Contact a Chocolate Concierge if you have questions about specific collections. Because our products are all made in the same facility, they may contain traces of peanuts, tree nuts, milk proteins and pearl dust (allergen: shellfish).

What is “blooming” on a chocolate bar and is it safe to eat?
Chocolate bloom is the whitish film that can discolor the surface of chocolate. It is quite common and is actually the cocoa butter or fat within the chocolate rising to the surface. Fat bloom is usually caused when the chocolate is exposed to a change in temperature. The cocoa butter separates from the chocolate and rises to the surface creating the “dusty” appearance. Blooming is a cosmetic issue and not a safety issue. Bloomed chocolate is safe to eat. Vosges Haut-Chocolat Chocolate Bars are made from all natural ingredients with no preservatives.

For our wedding, instead of our names, can I engrave a quote onto the 2-piece boxes?
