Chocolate-covered matzah is a tradition in my family. We have to have it every year. In the past, we've bought the cheap stuff (I won't name names) or better yet, we've made it ourselves so we can enjoy higher end chocolate. This year, we have entered a whole new universe of chocolate-covered matzah, made by Charles Chocolates.
Whether you share our tradition, or you're not even Jewish and you just love high quality chocolate, you should experience these incredible treats. As they're sold specifically for Passover, you don't have much longer to purchase them, until next year, of course.
Fruit jellies are also tradition on Passover, and Charles Chocolates has those, too. But his are extraordinary and I can't remember ever calling fruit jellies extraordinary before. They come 15 to a pack, in flavors raspberry, white peach, blood orange, passion fruit, and papaya and they go by the fancier name of Pate de Fruit.
Note: While the ingredients used in both the chocolate-covered matzah and the pate de fruit are kosher, they were not prepared in a certified Kosher-for-Passover kitchen. If that means you won't be able to eat them during Passover, fine, buy them now while they're available, and eat them in a week!
