GIFT OF THE DAY: Baron Chocolates
 Baron Chocolate Bars are made in two sizes and 10 flavors.  Everyone’s favorite: chocolate truffles with plain or flavored chocolate centers.  Our favorite treat: chocolate-covered gummi bears and  worms (all photos courtesy Baron Chocolatier).
Baron Chocolatier was created by Tomasz Kotas, the third of three generations of chocolatiers from Poznan (Posen), Poland.
After selling chocolate in Europe for 30 years, The Millano Group decided to establish a North American subsidiary—the U.S. is the world’s single largest chocolate market.
Selling private label* chocolates in the U.S. beginning in 2009, it more recently launched its own brand, Baron .
The brand is probably the best quality chocolate we’ve had at such low price points. For consumers looking for the most affordable premium chocolates, take a look at Baron.
All chocolates are made with natural ingredients, GMO-free and certified kosher by Triangle K.
The company makes a larger variety of products than these, but for starters, here’s what most people would like to find under the tree (or on the table or anywhere else).
Plain or fancy, there are small bars (1.76 ounces, 50g) and large bars (3.5 ounces, 100g). In addition to plain milk and dark chocolate, there are 8 specialty flavors:
The truffles are round balls filled with ganache, plain and flavored, in 5.25-ounce boxes (148 g).
As gummi enthusiasts, our personal greatest delight are the milk chocolate-covered gummi bears and gummi worms.
They’re so inexpensive, we bought stocking stuffers for everyone!
