Asheville-based French Broad’s Aphrodisiac Collection is so much sweeter than your typical sampler box with its assortment of six unique truffle flavors and modernly chic packaging that will impress even the most discerning of chocolate lovers.

The collection of unexpected flavors such as the Cabernet & Anise and Indian Kulfi with rose and cardamon set the Aphrodisiac Collection apart from any sampler box you’ll find at the local grocer.

French Broad uses locally sourced ingredients such as wildflower honey and figs; ganaches made with house-made 70-percent chocolate; and subtle flavors of olive oil, fennel, and orange that beckon you to stop and savor each each truffle two bites at a time. Save the Cosmic Love Potion truffle for last. The recipe was developed with the help of local herbalist Christa Hebal to induce feelings of love.

You can thank us later for the major brownie points this gift will get you. ($11.75 for a six-piece box, $22.50 for the 12-piece box, and $42.50 for the 24-piece box.)
