    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.

    Hi, 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.
