What's in my box?

“What's in the prepackaged boxes?” is a common question we get asked in our stores. We unfortunately don't have those folded paper legends often found in other packaged chocolate products typically found in supermarkets and drugstores. Hence, this blog post (which is a gateway to other posts where we elaborate on the different categories of chocolate that we carry). When you purchase one of our assortments, we want you to be confident that you are buying excellent chocolate that is thoughtfully prepared to ensure balance and variety. Our aim here is not to list every single chocolate with their respective fillings. Rather, we believe it's more useful to give you a broader understanding of our range and to provide you with a link at the end each post so that, if you choose, you may cross reference with the main Leonidas website where you can see all our chocolates and fillings. In this way, we hope to convey to you what makes our chocolates so unique and to warn you that once you try these chocolates, nothing else will do. Keep this in mind when gifting - your friends, family, and colleagues will come to expect nothing less! It's not only the thought that counts, but the quality as well :)


Below you'll see a categorical list of our range. Beside each category you'll find a representative percentage or number range that goes into each box. Click on the category and you'll be taken to the relevant blog post where we elaborate. (Blog posts for Candied Fruit and Alcohol Filled Chocolates will be up very shortly!)


1 - Pralines (45-50%)

2 - Butter Creams and House Creams (25-30%)

3 - Ganaches (25-30%)

4 - Caramels (5-10%)

5 - Candied Fruit – (1 or 2 pieces on top to finish off the box)

6 - Alcohol fillings- (1 to 3 pieces, only in the largest formats, ie. 30, 45, & 60 choc. sizes)


If you'd like to put together a custom box or special order (ie.wedding favors/corporate orders/multiple addresses), we're more than happy to put one together for you. Just fill out our contact form and let us know what you're looking for.
