My first order from Zam, ordered varieties of their products… my daughter finished many of them before I was able to try them. Very tasty.

Much better than expected!

Very nice piece of enjoyment early in the morning with my coffee or later in the day as a snack. I usually add some raspberries and whipped cream.

Ah, the memories!

I enjoyed my very first Canelé in the old town section of Bordeaux in 1961. It was perfection and those wonderful memories were brought back to me as I tasted the excellent creation from Zam Artisan Chocolates. The outside was browned and crispy/ chewy while the inside was a perfect pudding cake consistency. Just lovely with a cup of tea or coffee. One is a treat and two make just the right dessert. As you take a bite, pull air into your mouth so that you truly experience the buttery aroma and flavor. I live in Austin and am glad to have this creative company as my neighbor.

I keep ordering the teacakes because they are so good. It's between a butter cookie and pie crust filled with rich bittersweet chocolate.

I ordered the canelle for the first time, they are also very good.
