Here on The Chocolate Cult we appreciate every offering that is sent our way and we treat each with identical respect in terms of our sampling and review process. Acolytes follow my guidelines and know that we need to use and then describe what all five of our senses experienced so you, the reader, can learn more and determine what you might want to try. However, I must confess that when a big name chocolatier or company sends us something I get an extra thrill. So I was delighted when Dove Chocolate sent us two offerings for Valentine's Day.
Dove began as a true American business founded by immigrants and now part of Mars, also a family owned business. From that early candy store to ice cream bars, Dove should be a familiar name to you. Not only is this good chocolate but the company started promoting substainable agriculture. The products they sent us came in recyclable materials and the metal box has nothing on it to indicate Dove or Mars so you can reuse it easily if you want to make your own treats. For all this reasons, this Valentine's Day box from Dove earns the title of Worthy Sacrament.
