OMG. I just got my box of SpiceSutra Chocolates, a stunning, beautifully packaged spice-kissed luxury chocolates by my super talented friend Monica Bhide. Monica has embarked on a new challenge and new adventure: chocolates infused with love and lust-inducing spices, just in time for Valentine’s. Me bragging about this won’t help encourage you to get one of these as it sold out after a mere two days of going on sale! But it’s more for me to showcase what I think was a wonderful experiment that should definitely be repeated.
So it comes in this exquisit box, reminds me a bit of the Vivel Patisserie packaging. I’m really liking these boxes that are inspired by perfume packaging.
The product marketer in me thinks this is an outstanding positioning:
Monica partnered with a Washington DC-based artisan chocolate maker Co Co Sala to create this set of luxury chocolates. I think it’s a winning combo.
Here are the contents of my box:
1x SPICESUTRA ADRAK: dark chocolate candied ginger fennel seeds.
1x SPICESUTRA ELAICHI: white chocolate green cardomom
2x SPICESUTRA GULAB: milk chocolate gulkand rose preserves toasted cashews
So Khaled and I shared each one, splitting it in half. And my personal favorite, no surprise there, is the one containing cardamom! Well done, Monica!
