Give the Gift of Fine Chocolate in Winslow!
There’s nothing quite like receiving a beautiful box of chocolates—a gift of simple luxury people get really excited about. We’ve been working with our friends at Epic Fine Chocolates to have more Fine Chocolate in Winslow!
If you’ve had the Fudge or Arizona Desert Tortoise we carry at the Mercantile, you know how special Epic Fine Chocolates are. We chose this brand for several reasons: They are Arizona based, they use all-natural ingredients, and their chocolate tastes great. Chef David—a classically trained professional chef with over 40 years of award-winning candy making experience—makes his chocolates on an off-the-grid ranch near Snowflake.
“The candy kitchen sits at a cool 6000 feet above sea level, with wonderful crisp, clear high-desert air, and forever views.”Epic Fine Chocolates
Perhaps that’s why Epic chocolate is so divine.
The quality of the chocolate also comes from David and Kathryn’s high standards.
No Funny Ingredients
”We use only the finest ingredients available, including exquisite Belgian Chocolates, sweet cream butter, high-quality fancy nuts, and 100% pure flavors, extracts, and liqueurs. Even the colors we infrequently use in our fancy molded bonbons are 100% natural.”
