Panicking over holiday items that translate into fine gifts for family members or colleagues? Then consider gift baskdets from Madecasse chocolates located in Brooklyn, NY.
Founded by two young men who traveled through Africa as Peace Corps Volunteers, Brett Beach and Tim McCollum formed a company that sells excellent chocolate (Best in Show award/NYC Chocolate Show) while generating jobs for poverty-stricken areas. But none of this would matter is the produce were not clean, full-bodied and memorable.
For the holidays, there are a couple of baskets of particular interest to weekend bakers: Baking Set ($39.99) includes Madagascar Vanilla extracts (very fragrant), beans, powder and sugar The Baking Set can be combined with: 8 Chocolate Gift Basket ($49.99) consisting of 8 bars of dark chocolate of varying cacao percentages.
The Madagascar Collection ($69.99) mixes the vanilla and chocolate selections in one basket. In case you haven't heard, eating chocolate and pepper makes for a provocative combination and so, you can order Madagascar Peppercorns. Besides the ecologically and economically correct timbre of the company, they have found a simple, elegant way to transport the flavors of Africa around the world in eye soothing packaging.
Orders take 2-5 days with UPS. For more information go to: [email protected]
