The 11 Chocolates Kim Kardashian Should Splurge on during Pregnancy #2
No one is immune to the power of chocolate
There’s been no shortage of Kim Kardashian in the news lately. The latest, was her appearance in Paper magazine (this link is THE link to her pics from glory to all her glory, alrighty?). This nude of Kim Kardashian from Harper Bazaar is less frontal.
She quickly went to bat, letting everyone know that she wanted to do something to make her feel confident even though she did not #BreakTheInternet.
Now, there’s speculation we should be “expecting something else from her and Kanye“ aka Kimye
While the Kimye rumor mill grows, we’ve weighed in from the chocolate side of things. If power couple decides to make North a big sister then Kim can be in store for some major chocolate cravings as many pregnant women are.
Kim has great taste that show up in brands like Laboutin, Chanel and of course Bentley. Regardless of what you think of her, the girl works harder than most of us realize, plus she’s a mom and the other half of a power couple (not sure if the other half is Kris Jenner or Kanye though). With the money she earns, she can afford luxury and then some which is why I think these are the luxurious chocolates she should splurge on when Kanye and her make baby #2.
Pure Criollo cacao is difficult to come by and even more difficult to mold into a chocolate bar that speaks to the bean’s fine, delicate flavor. Amedei has the rare access to these of which only 3000 kilograms are harvested each year. Chocolatier Cecilia Tessieri creates an aromatic, well-rounded bar worthy of these coveted, rare beans.
Upon debuting his winning pralines at the World Fair in Brussels in 1910, Greek-American Leonidas Kestekides fell in love with a local Belgian girl and opened a tea room in Ghent. After his pralines again won gold at the Ghent World Fair in 1913, Leonidas began selling chocolates from his storefront window, then expanded his operation to tea houses in Brussels and Blankenberge. Today Leonidas sells chocolates at over 1,500 storefronts worldwide, but the prolific brand’s humble beginnings are never too far away — “democracy in chocolate” is their motto, meaning that the good stuff isn’t only reserved for the rich. And although Kim and Kanye are beyond rich, these two were both taught about having a strong work ethic at a young age. Leonidas is a perfect chocolate treasure for Kim.
Knipschildt Chocolatier was founded in 1999 by Fritz Knipschildt, who began his culinary journey as a chef in Odense, Denmark. The most-expensive chocolate he sells–a $250 dark chocolate truffle with a French black truffle inside–is available only on a preorder-only basis. Which I’m sure Kim’s assistant or manager could hook her up with.
4. The Monchie Bar
This is a luxurious white chocolate bar for the ultimate LA trendsetter aka Kim Kardashian. The creator, Onch, put major time into this bar in order to find the ultimate cure to the munchies, featuring handmade white chocolate packed with gummy bears, sour patch kids, and a dash of fruity pebbles in a blinged out wrapper.
Kim loves sparkle and this chocolate company adds a bit of sparkle in their chocolate. I can totally see Kim indulging in Delafee. The chocolate is specially prepared with fine cocoa beans and flakes of edible 24-karat gold applied by hand to each bar.
By now, you may want to become a Chocolatier yourself (you can)
Marcolini offers customers one of the widest varieties of flavors on the luxury market today. And the countries reflected here on his chocolates will certainly appeal to the globe trotting Kardashian klan.
7. Debauve & Gallais
Debauve & Gallais creates intricate chocolates displayed in these stunning boxes (just love the navy and gold combo – screams luxury to me). Their ingredients are a microcosm of the world that include Piedmont hazelnuts, Perigord nuts, Turkish raisins, Spanish almonds, Turin chestnuts and Antilles rum. There are no dyes, preservatives or other additives ever used in Debauve & Gallais chocolate which make them an even better find for a pregnant woman.
8. Donnelly Chocolates
Richard Donnelly began making chocolate in 1988 after studying with a number of master chocolatiers in Paris and Brussels.
Donnelly Chocolates has been named One of The Ten Best in Chocolatier, Bon Appetit and Dessert Professional magazines. In 1998 he won the award for Best Artisan Chocolate at the Perugia, Italy EuroChocolate festival. In 2008, 2010 and 2012 National Geographic named Donnelly Chocolates One of the ten best in the world. Totally Kim approved. And baby #2 deserves the best even in the womb.
9. Teuscher Chocolates
Zagat declares Teuscher has “the best champagne truffles on the planet.” I don’t think Kim will be drinking any alcohol but thankfully she could try Teuscher’s other chocolates almost anywhere int he world from Beverly Hills to Abu Dhabi to Singapore. Chocolate made by the Swiss. Enough said.
10. Madam Chocolat
Hasty Torres, wife to Jacques Torres (yes, that Jacques Torres) and judge on TLC’s upcoming Chocolate Wars. Her shop, Madame Chocolat, was located in Beverly Hills where she sells her famous chocolate molds (chocolate Valentino, Christian Louboutin, Monolo Blahnik, Chanel high heels) amongst other yummies . . . . but now is joining forces with the hubster and moving operations to NYC. Yay for NYC! Besides Kim and Kanye have an apartment there so she’ll never be too far. And I’m sure North would love to munch on some of Torres’ chocolate-covered Cheerios (imagine Kim carrying those in a ziploc bag in her Birkin bag)
11. Paul A. Young Fine Chocolates
Paul Young is a London based chocolatier who opened his first shop in 2006 on Camden Passage in Islington with his business partner James Cronin and won a series of awards ever since. He’s made TV appearances and wrote a book a few years ago, Adventures with Chocolate.
At the end of the day, Kim works hard. She is hounded by the paparazzi, stars in multiple reality shows, models, runs DASH, puts up with her sisters, brother, stepbrothers, stepsisters . . . and she is a wife and a mother. If and when baby #2 comes, she has the money to throw down on anything and everything she wants. I just hope that she indulges in the best chocolates the world has to offer.
Yep, I think she should have one more chocolate indulgence. And here it is . . . run for it Kim!
The Frrozen Haute Chocolate
Stephen Bruce, owner of Serendipity 3, partnered with luxury jeweler Euphoria New York to create the “Frrozen Haute Chocolate,” a blend of 28 cocoas, including 14 of the most expensive and exotic from around the globe.
The dessert, spelled with two Rs, is infused with 5 grams (0.2 ounces) of edible 23-karat gold and served in a goblet lined with edible gold. At the base of the goblet is an 18-karat gold bracelet with 1 carat of white diamonds.
The sundae is topped with whipped cream covered with more gold and a side of La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier, which sells for $2,600 a pound.
It is eaten with a gold spoon decorated with white and chocolate-colored diamonds, which can also be taken home.
So chocoholics . . . we’ve covered Kim, we’ve covered North . . and Baby #2. What do you think she and Kanye will name the next baby? South? Haute? Serendipity?
