FrontRunners: Taste Chest

<< Back to Robb Report, March 2007

    If it had been introduced in the age of ocean liners, the $15,000 Chocolate Picnic Steamer Trunk from the MarieBelle chocolate company (www.mariebelle.com) would have been ideal for a world traveler with an insatiable sweet tooth. Now it serves as a unique way to package 350 pieces of MarieBelle chocolate ganache, five pounds of dark and milk chocolate bars and croquettes, and four 20-ounce tins of Aztec hot chocolate, along with two sets of tableware and a collection of books on chocolate and style.
