The Queen of England has granted Prestat Chocolate not one but two Royal Warrants.  Rumor has it that she’s never far from a box of their chocolates.  Subscriber Amelia O. discovered that for the first time ever they can be found in the United States. Amelia brought me a sample.  My reaction? The Queen has good taste in chocolates!

Prestat was established in 1902 by a French émigré whose family created the chocolate truffle.  The flagship store is at 14 Princes Arcade in Piccadilly.  Last year Chelsea Market Basket brought them into the United States for the first time.  The chocolate truffles are divine, the dark chocolate mint bar is wonderful and the packaging is beautiful.  They make great presents if you can bring yourself to give them away.
