Ghyslain chocolates waiting for their time in front of the camera
Before jackets and long sleeves are even necessary, the holiday spirit begins making its way into our office. Summer has not yet bid “farewell” when we start considering Kentucky-made products—an embarrassment of riches—for possible inclusion in our annual Holiday Gift Guide. But the holiday happiness was supercharged when a gorgeous box of candies from Ghyslain Chocolat des Beaux Arts arrived at our office in mid-October.
I’ll admit, a plain chocolate bar is enough to spark in me a twinge of delight. My reaction upon removing the lid from the red and gold box was, well, ridiculously rapturous. “Ghyslain chocolates! Ghyslain chocolates!” I screamed before rushing to every desk in the office to introduce the confectionary beauties to my coworkers.
Then the waiting began.
The Ghyslain chocolates finally had their time in front of the camera last week. The box of twelve candies (the perfect size to satiate our team) then made its farewell tour of the office as each staffer made her or his pick of which beautiful, tiny piece of art to consume. See that shimmering gold-ish truffle? It was my sugary victim. And it was heavenly.
