Possibly the best chocolates in the world?

Charbonnel et Walker's Pink Champagne Truffles had always held a particular allure for me, I'd been promised them on several occasions but had been teased by one of the small Champagne bars instead, delicious but for these perfect rose pink spheres of heaven - I had to wait a bit longer.
Whilst attending the various food events last month at Harvey Nichols, I was offered one of these heady orbs and was very impressed by how absolutely delicious they were. And then I was informed that they were the much coveted Charbonnel et Walker truffles but Harvey Nichols had repackaged them in their own style. And if packaging is remotely important to you, you really can't beat Harvey Nichols' packaging. This time we don't have a dramatically shot black & white photograph of a dark red lipsticked Italian femme fatale popping a truffle seductively in her mouth, unusually for Harvey Nix I may add. No instead we have a rather fetching totally plain pink mock croc box perfect for storing a few diva trinkets in afterwards.
But never mind the box, these chocolate are truly sublime - they were worth waiting for! Now I just need someone to buy me another box!
