Carefully packed in a plastic container with a green ribbon, the set of 3 edible blooms looked like a large prom corsage from afar. The individually wrapped mango orchids, with tips dipped in bittersweet chocolate, were made of fruit from the island of Cebu in the Philippines, known for its flavorful mangoes. Mindy Fong, of Jade Chocolates, credits the Pacific Islands as her inspiration behind this tangy sweet, floral bouquet.
The term artisanal may be overused; however, I have no trouble applying this term to Mindy's creations.
This hand-crafted mango orchid trio from Jade Chocolates (San Francisco, CA) would be a great gift for any special occasion.
