Why you should buy it:

Mark Fraser, the exclusive distributor of Pierre Ledent in the UK, said: “Valentine’s Day is a time for romance and to impress and it is also a highly profitable time for restaurants and hotels outlets. The pressure is on chefs and caterers to capitilise on cupid and to create stand out dining packages to entice couples on this special day.

“Chocolate is an essential ingredient for any Valentine’s celebration, but to create an impression of luxury and excellence, there is no better way than Pierre Ledent’s gourmet chocolates. Shaped into sweethearts, the high-gloss colours and delicious flavours are sure to leave a lasting impression on lovers and make this Valentine’s Day a memorable one.”
