Bissinger's Handmade Chocolate

The great thing about the holidays is that -- MNCH -- you don't really have to worry -- OMOMOM MMMM -- about stuffing your face -- MMF*snap*MMF -- with sugary treats. In fact -- MMMMMMNNNNNNSNRF -- if your mouth isn't full of chocolate throughout December -- MUNCHMUNCH -- you're doing something wrong.

Oh, my heavens. I'm drooling.


Do be sure to notice the shipping date on these as they are made to order. So don't freak out when they don't ship right away. They'll ship out 3-5 business days after December 9.

I had the exact same reaction. I figured it would be at least 10-12 pieces.

Edit: That being said- the Chocolate covered grapes look interesting. Anyone have any experience with these or something similar?

No kidding! I think they're only $10.00 on the website anyway, but you may have to buy two.
They sound tasty though.

Wondering how these compare to Candy Basket we've become used to, and spoiled by..?

I'm curious about those myself. I wonder what percentage cocoa the chocolate is in those.

Did you know shirt.woot ships internationally? Get you some!

Can I ship this directly as a gift, or will it include an invoice with a price on it?

Strange, they don't have the box for clicking to state that you are ordering it as a gift. So it doesn't look like you can ship it as a gift without the invoice included.

No paperwork is included in the box with the chocolates.

Be sure to let the recipient know you're sending them something or they won't know who to thank!

Never had them, and I am just as curious. But "dried wine grapes" sounds suspiciously like raisins. With my mouthbrain, I'm imagining large Raisinets that have a wine-infused flavor.

Darn. Now that I've got the answer, It's sold out!

Dear Woot:

I need the Fleur de Sel chocolates back. I don't think you understand - the women at my office are addicted to them. I held them off over the summer because it was too hot to ship, but they've been asking me now that it's cooler if I'll get them again.

Woot, do you know what it's like to work with all women? I keep cabinets full of chocolate just to stay alive. I think the Fleur de Sel ones helped me get a promotion.

You can't just leave me high and dry like this.

Factoring in shipping, almost $3.00/bite. Nice. Screaming deal there.

Too bad the $20 for 24 pieces sold out. That one was only $0.83 per piece instead of $1.80 per piece for the 5-piece box. Bit of a price discrepancy there...

Here here! I second the request for more Fleur de Sel chocolate. I got excited when I saw these but then realized they weren't the same ones. :-(

Costco has some sea-salt chocolates that I picked up thinking that they would hold the estrogen-fueled horde till the others were available. They weren't the same. I was warned against bringing in imitations again.

Please, Woot. I tried e-mailing Candy Basket them but they wouldn't return my e-mails.

As a native St. Louisan these are extremely good chocolates. Even better when they are made into a gooey butter cake......mmmmmmm

Check wine.woot today and see that Woot! sometimes answers your wishes.

For my part, I *think* I've had chocolate-covered wine-infused grapes from Woot before (but not sure if it was these). They were good enough that I've bought a couple of these. I'll try one and may give the other to a friend.

I still hope that Woot will one day bring back the wine-filled chocolates that they carried a few years ago, although that manufacturer may no longer exist. Now those were worth buying 3 of.

YES! I was sooooo excited when I woke up and saw that this morning. Thank you, Woot, for making my Christmas a merry one.

p.s. I think they are acutally over at Home.Woot.

Received the maple bacon caramels. I personally think they are WAY to maple-y. Won't get these again, especially for the price. Darn you MAPLE!!
