The bonbons come in two flavors: pineapple-passionfruit, which features a tart pineapple pâté de fruit and a dark-chocolate-and-passionfruit ganache, and coffee-hazelnut, a coffee-infused milk-chocolate ganache paired with a layer of hazelnut praline. They can be purchased individually for $1.50 or boxed up in quantities ranging from four ($8) to 30 ($46). You can choose your own varieties—say, all coffee-hazelnut—or buy one of the prepackaged nine-piece samplers ($17) with three coffee-hazelnut, three pineapple-passionfruit, and three fleur de sel caramels (salty caramel treats reported to be Obama’s favorite candy).
To cater for a large group, Andelman is also offering a discount on orders of 50 or more chocolates, reducing the per-chocolate price to $1.25. If you’re interested in placing an order, call the store at 703-239-0616 before Saturday—it’s closed Sunday and Tuesday.
