The chocolate media darling of the year is undoubtedly Christine Doerr's Neo Cocoa. I first sampled these unique truffles at the San Francisco Chocolate Salon, where Neo Cocoa snagged a first place for "Best Truffle" and a second place for "Best Traditional Chocolates," "Top Artisan Chocolatier," "Most Luxurious Chocolate Experience," "New Product" and "Best in Salon." With accolades like that, how much higher can Neo Cocoa soar?

"these are my new favorite truffles "handcrafted in San Francisco." Christine Doerr started out at the Stanford Shopping Center at the Cocolat retail shop (all hail Alice Medrich), went on to the CCA, became a pastry chef, went to design school, worked as a graphic designer and of course, chocolate called her back! Good thing it did."

The roster of chocolates at Neo Cocoa is small, but it’s growing slowly. These chocolates are intense, but they’re not excessively bittersweet (you try pulling that off sometime!). While they’re probably best suited to those devoted to stronger flavors, I’m sure those uber-smooth textures will pull in many new fans.
