Come and visit one of the Sue Lewis Artisan Chocolatier stores soon, and try a little bit of heaven that fits in your hand and melts in your mouth.
I've recently shopped for a gift at Sue Lewis, and I was disappointed. The chocolates are smaller than any photos might suggest. A 50$ gift melts into a box of 13 x 18 cm (single layer), the box itself minimalistic brown cardboard. It certainly didn't look like a 50$ gift. An equivalent 30 Euros would find better value among the pralines and ganaches at Jean Galler.
