Milène Jardine, Owner

Company mission:

Artisanal, international chocolates inspired by my personal mantra: “Live by Love”. After exploring over 35 countries and meeting inspirational people every step of the way, I believe in the healing power of food, of connection, and of love. The vision is to celebrate the beauty of diversity through chocolate. Each contains the finest natural ingredients: dark chocolate with exotic fruits, herbs and spices that heal and soothe the body. They’re delicious and good for the soul. Milène Jardine Chocolatier is my gift to a curious, and ever-surprising world that inspires me every single day. Through sponsorship opportunities with the Cancer Society’s Taste of Hope, Lifeline Organization, and the newly created Chocolate for Healthcare Heroes Gifting Program, Milène Jardine Chocolatier feels acts of kindness will help create a better society.

Signature product: 

“Live by Love” Classic Chocolate Truffle Gift Box is the premier Collection. The assortment is a journey of flavors from five countries across diverse continents.

Secret of Success

The fresh ingredients used are mindfully sourced with natural health benefits to offer a dessert that indulges and heals. No artificial ingredients or preservatives are added when
producing the confections. Made with premium dark chocolate, real fruit, nuts, and spices, each chocolate is a refreshing flavor experience. The assortment includes the truffle, ginger turmeric black pepper, a spice combo with anti-inflammatory properties. The lemons originate in Sicily and the cacao beans for the 70% blend are from Peru and Ecuador, creating globally sourced confections. With seasonal additions like gobo/burdock root, a cleansing adaptogen, the introduction of these balancing ingredients in chocolate encourage clients to add more of these nutrients to their diet. For the more conservative palate, there are options like Whiskey Sea/Salt and Pistachio. Each chocolate truffle and bar flavor also pairs with a signature cheese and wine/spirit revealing dynamic flavor
