WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY:
December 2008: "If you haven't tasted Linda's chocolates, then you haven't tasted the best. With so many new chocolatiers that have sprouted in the USA, I can say, without hesitation, that Linda's chocolates stand alone in their freshness, quality, taste and smooth texture. It's like eating silk. We give them to many of our friends and family over the holidays, who enjoy them immensely. And every gift card included in the package is handwritten."
September 2007: "We have been buying Linda's chocolates for more than 10 years, and I can say that she is true to herself. We live in Manhattan, where chocolatiers have sprouted up practically everywhere. Not one comes even close to Linda's products. Her chocolates are truly the best, the freshest, and her personal customer service is unequaled. We love you, Linda." - Bernard J., NYC
Valentine's Day 2007: "There are no words adequate for your incredible chocolates. 'The Grish' is what we affectionately and respectfully call your delicacies in our house, as when someone comes to dinner and one of us asks, 'Do we hide The Grish or share it?'" - Maria P., NYC
July 2006: "I visited Vermont this summer, and while in the Shelburne Museum gift shop, asked my cousin if Grishman chocolates were any good. She said, 'Fabulous' right off the bat. So I purchased three small bars to take home (dark chocolate, dark with almonds and peppermint crunch). She was right. My husband and I love dark chocolate and have tasted chocolate in Switzerland, California and elsewhere. This is by far my favorite. Thanks for a wonderful product!" - Kris, Colorado
December 2005: "My very discerning aunt says that your dark chocolate is the best she has ever tasted. The assortment will be headed her way for the holidays. Maybe I'll even get a chance to taste a piece, but I'm not counting on it." - Sandra S., Minnesota
December 2005: "Got the chocolate today - tried the milk chocolate first - it is simply spectacular. :) I'm going to give some away as stocking stuffers and likely horde the dark choc. for myself." - Scott H., Minnesota
October 2005: "If chocolates were a religion, you would be the messiah." - Amanda, California
April 2005: "Your chocolates are simply wonderful; and having lived in Paris for three years in a neighborhood of exquisite chocolatiers, I can tell you I am spoiled by the best. Many thanks for your good work and commitment to quality. I look forward to sharing them (second order) with some French friends who will be visiting me next week. Thanks." - Lynette, Massachusetts
March 2005: "The pigouts are totally awesome. I ordered 2 lbs. this time, since when we ordered just 1 lb. last time they only lasted the day. I'm just hoping these will make it to Easter." - Todd, Connecticut
November 2004: "Michael just walked in the door from a business trip when your chocolates arrived, and the first thing he did was devour a cow crunch (between bites moaning, "This is the best"). - A well-known NYC restauranteur
June 2003: "Simply the BEST chocolatier you will likely ever find, with INCREDIBLE products and who takes the greatest individual customer care with their customers. Wish everyone else was like them! AAA+++"
February 2003: "Not only are your chocolates the finest we have ever had, and we have had chocolates from around the world, but your personal service is unique and made me feel that I wasn't just another number in a long line of numbers."
January 2003: "Dear N., Sorry to have been so out of touch lately...but the chocolates...oh my, the chocolates! Truly never had anything that even approaches the quality of these...absolutely the best we've ever tasted! We rationed it out very carefully to make it last as long as possible, and enjoyed every bite."
December 2002: "Dear A., I have to be honest, I didn't think any chocolate could match last year's truffles from Payard. However, these handmade Vermont chocolates were something else. They were impossible to leave alone...wonder how she does the infusions of raspberry and espresso? It's like a fairy passed by with an eye-dropper of deep essence."
