Two of my favorites, PRESTAT Chocolates and Henri Bendel, are coming together for Valentine's Day 2013 ! PRESTAT'S chocolate is so amazing, and I love their packaging as the boxes make great keepsakes to store your jewelry or other small items. Here is the information from PRESTAT'S press release:
New York, NY— January 18, 2013—PRESTAT, the UK’s prestige chocolate brand affectionately
known as Her Majesty The Queen’ s chocolate makers, and much loved by Roald Dahl, the
celebrated author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, opens its first ever Valentine’s Day pop up
store at Henri Bendel on February 8 in New York City. It remains open through February 14.
“Prestat and Henri Bendel are two timeless, romantic, girl-loving brands,” said Nick Crean, chairman
of PRESTAT. “Why did it take us so long to find each other? After all, our founders were inventing
the chocolate truffle in France in 1895, while Henri Bendel was welcoming their first guest into their
Fifth Avenue store.”
The pop up shop will offer PRESTAT’s traditional hot pink Artisan Truffle Heart Box and chocolate
bars wrapped in eye-caching colors. The shop will also exclusively sell PRESTAT’s Miniature Artisan
Heart Truffle Box that includes a delicious collection of three chocolates; a rice crisp chocolate; a
passion fruit fondant; and a dark truffle. The box retails for $12.00.
PRESTAT is the favorite chocolate of not only the Queen but of Prince William and Catherine
Duchess of Cambridge as well.
Prestat was founded in England in 1902 by Antoine Dufour. The Dufour family originally created
the chocolate truffle. In 1998 Nick Crean and his half-brother Bill Keeling purchased Prestat. Crean
and Keeling are committed to continue Prestat’s rich history of chocolate making into the future.
Prestat is honored to have held the Royal Warrant from her Majesty the Queen of England, for
over 35 years and was also privileged to receive the last Royal Warrant given by Her Majesty
Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. A Royal Warrant is a mark of service, quality of produce and
outstanding value. This is what the crest/ coat of arms that is on every one of our products stands
for: the best quality, the best service, the best value. Prestat is affectionately known as the Queen of
England’s chocolate makers. @Prestat
