Subject: Schmidt is a hit!
I just skimmed the chocolate URL and found
it amusing and informative. I'm no expert,
but while I was in SF this summer, my aunt
recommended I stop by Joseph Schmidt
as it was close by a school that I was visiting,
and renowned for truffles.
Now, I'm even less of an expert when it
comes to truffles, but just FYI, I thought
the stuff at Schmidt's was terrific. In fact,
I stopped there more than once and rang
up quite a bit on my credit card (those
truffles, mints and slicks aren't cheap).

a friend gave me a box of Joseph Schmidt's Slicks
the other day. these chocolates are a little
different, in that instead of having the traditional
ball-shape, they are like small flat pancakes. i've
had one so far, which i've enjoyed since the chocolate
is quite smooth.

I wanted to add my opinion of these chocolates
to your list.. I have sampled lot's of different
chocolates from Godiva (in Paris and LA), See's,
Fannie May, Seattle favorite Boehm's and favor
high cocoa content dark chocolates. I don't
consider myself an expert but feel compelled to
share the some info. Recently I had a box of
J. Schmidt truffles and thought they were the best
I have had had since Paris. The flavors were a
subtle undertone to the great lasting chocolate
flavor. The half egg size was perfect and the
rasberry flavor my personal favorite.
Just my 2 cents worth.
