Chocoholics, rejoice. Consider this fresh, citrusy bar white chocolate for people who shun the stuff. There's even a bonus in the form of the gentle pop of chili powder that comes at the end of each bite. Veracruz Orange in White Chocolate.

Seattle Chocolates Lemon Ice Bar
Chocolate isn’t typically thought of as refreshing, but this new Lemon Ice bar from Seattle Chocolates really is—candy makers infuse the white chocolate truffle bar with pieces of old-fashioned lemon candy from Chicago. If white chocolate isn’t your thing, the Seattle chocolatiers also make a seasonal Campers’ S’mores bar, the perfect thing to drop in the kids’ summer camp bags. $3 for 2.5 ounces.

It might not be Christmas time, but Seattle Chocolate's Hot Buttered Rum Milk Chocolate Truffle bar is certainly getting me into the season. I love hot buttered rum (the best I have had is available seasonally at The Duke of Perth in Chicago) and this creamy, rich candy bar brings to mind the cold afternoons in front of the Duke's warm fire.

When Jean Thompson joined her family’s chocolate business eight years ago when she was 42, one of the first things that struck her was how confection marketing was so, well, serious.
An entrepreneur by nature, she saw an opportunity in taking in the traditional earth tones and golden hues that typically wrapped rich pieces of cocoa. She inherently understood that it was about the flavor and the sheer joy of biting into a luxurious piece of chocolate, rather than overly ornate packaging.

Seattle Chocolates has a new line of five Chick Bars with snappy names and some wildly creative flavors. All have firm centers, unlike their truffles. At first, I found the firm centers a little confusing; after all, fillings are usually softer than couverture, but, after a few tastes, I came to love the texture since it made each bite last longer.

Just as thousands of artists have used the same paints to achieve wildly varying results, chocolatiers can use the same ingredients to create completely different products. This occurred to me as I tucked into a bag of assorted truffles from Seattle Chocolates. I had recently written about their truffle bars and erroneously assumed these would be very similar, but smaller. I underestimated their vision. They may use the same fillings and couverture, but the results are very different.
