Vosges Haut Chocolate


Vosges Haut Chocolat

Nestled discreetly in the Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace is a specialty chocolate shop. From the outside, it looks like a jewelry store and on the inside... little drops of heaven are displayed in glass cases as if they were indeed jewels!

No trip to Caesar's is complete without a visit to this gourmet chocolate shop. You'll be pleased to discover that many of the items are vegan! The staff behind the counter are very helpful in pointing out items that are suitable for all kinds of tastes & desires.

I don't have to remind you that all truffles contain ganache, a mixture of chocolate & cream, so vegans will have to skip these treats. I had tasted many of the truffles while still a lacto-vegetarian and can attest to the absolute deliciousness of the Aztec, Tellegio Cheese, Black Pearl, and several that I don't remember the names to: white chocolate + kalamata olive, and the violet flower.

For vegans, feel free to partake in the many chocolate bars; read the ingredient labels carefully as a few of the dark chocolate items may contain dairy.

Sit down at the drink bar and indulge in one (or all!) of the drinking chocolates: La Parisienne, Blanca & Aztec. As your barista what the non-dairy options are AND you'll discover they offer soy, almond and rice milk! Personally, I love the Blanca with almond milk, and the other two with rice milk. Each drink is served either hot or over ice depending. Though I highly recommend the Aztec hot for maximum enjoyment of the spices!

So when in Vegas, be sure to check out Vosges, located on the first floor of the Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace. From Las Vegas Blvd., use the main entrance of the shops - it's directly behind the curving escalators & fountains.

Hello, my name is Ashley and I work for Magnolia Pictures. Magnolia Pictures is one of the leading film distribution companies that focuses on small independent and foreign language films. Currently we have a new film called "Food, Inc." The film has opened in New York and LA and has received a great response. On Friday, July 3rd, Food Inc. will be opening in Las Vegas. Due to the film's messages about the importance of purchasing local, sustainable foods and the dangers of the industrialization of food, we think that your site's audience would strongly identify with "Food, Inc."

Would it be alright if I emailed you the link to our HTML (to be copied and pasted into browser)? It would be greatly appreciated if you could forward it on to your site members, or followers, or if it could be included in your blog. We encourage you to check out the film's website as well www.foodincmovie.com.

Please let us know how you can help promote this important documentary.

Thank you!

Best,

Ashley

The best thing about Vosges is that they will give you samples of every bar if you just ask! Even though I basically always wander in for the same things (the half-pound TOFFEE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE is unbelievable, and I love the Barcelona bar), I always play dumb and ask for as many samples as my conscience will allow.

Appropriately, the store itself is major eye candy. I always feel like I'm stepping into a different world when I walk from the noisy, crowded street into the little purple shop. Everything is purple and silver and shiny and perfectly in place. It's a great place to take a friend for an ice cream on a hot day or to a tourist friend as a break during SoHo shopping.
