This Christian Grey-inspired box of chocolates from Kollar "aims to please" with its sleek packaging and thematic splattering of paint, but could the bonbons top our sultry review of E L James's Fifty Shades of Grey wine? The set ($12 for 6 bonbons) consists of a caramel ganache enrobed in dark chocolate. Though we have yet to find a chocolate maker who really messes that combination up, Kollar impressed us with the satiny chocolate that snaps into a lush caramel center. The half spheres are almost (if not more!) gratifying than the trilogy.
The only letdown is that these bonbons are almost impossible to savor — they're too delicious to take it slow. We admit, the chocolates have tied up our hearts, but that may have something to do with the fact that chocolate is a natural aphrodisiac. Plan ahead and order a box so you can stash it and some wine (in a to-go coffee cup) while watching the film in theaters Feb. 13. It's thrilling to break the rules sometimes, isn't it?
