Dragees are chocolate covered candy made in special revolving kettles. The term dragee is French in origins and describes the method in which we coat our dried fruits, nuts, and espresso beans. Dilettante chocolate covered dragee candies use fruits and nuts. Chocolate covered fruits and nuts are chocolate covered candy free from compound coating and only use the highest quality chocolate. These dragees are the chocolate connoisseur's ultimate snack.

I'd had these years ago - received in a wedding favor - and absolutely loved them. They were not in the original package and I was unable to learn exactly what they were or where to get them. But I've just been reunited with them through my local Trader Joe's!
The dark milk chocolate has a sublime texture, creamy but very deep and rich, with notes of cherry so that you are teased before you ever bite into the fruit. The subtle deep red color also belays the experience, creating an opulent sense of pampered anticipation. You cannot help but feel decadent just looking at them.
The cherries are marvelous. Dark, sweet and tangy with a tart bite that would cause a slight pucker if not for the perfectly balanced buffer of the divine chocolate.
These are easily one of my all-time favorite chocolates confections. As stated by other reviewers, you cannot eat just one; in fact, it's very hard to stop. The quality is unsurpassed and the rich origins and history which have gone into their creation is well honored and impossible to miss. Dilettante sets a high bar!
These chocolate coated bing cherries are heavenly. Someone gave me a container as a gift and I thought they are so good. The only problem is you can't have just one. One of the best products I have ever tasted. I wish I could find them in Ontario, Canada.
These are the most amazing chocolate covered cherries I have Ever Had. A thorough addict now.
I am becoming a connoisseur of chocolate covered cherries, and I love Dilettante's best because the coating is thicker and has a nice crunch (not too hard, but noticeable) that contrasts with the chewy cherries inside.
The best Bing Cherries around!
I bought these while traveling at SEA-TAC.
I waited till I got home to try them. OMG! I couldn't keep out of them.
They are so good and SOoooo big. You can't eat just one.
Almost a cordial cherry without the messy sticky stuff. I am ordering more!!
Absolutely Decadent w/o Guilt
This is so good. Not so sweet that it cramps my stomach, and the flavor is unadulterated with a clean full taste. The cherry and chocolate flavors combine beautifully.
Can't share them with anyone??
I'm quite the opposite. I HAVE to share them with everyone!! These are absolutely the finest chocolates I've eaten in a very long time. I found them at my local Trader Joe's, and they're exceptional! The cherries are decadent and sweet, with a sour note at the end, and the chocolates are rich and smooth. They are coated to not melt in your hand, but the coating doesn't affect the palette. Beautiful chocolates, and amazing with coffee. You can't eat just one!
My sister had some of these over the holidays, and on my first test taste, I thought they were delicious. Not too sweet, just right. The color and size are just perfect. I've given them as gifts and everyone really enjoys the taste. Excellent product. Give it a try, what are you waiting for????
I love everything cherry and have had many chocolate covered cherries before but none as good as this. I don't want to share them with anyone!! Would highly recommend these candies.
The best chocolate cherries
I was given these as a birthday gift and they are absolutely exceptional. Everyone whom I have allowed to sample have raved about them also. I only have a few left and so have begged my benefactor to purchase more when she flies to Los Angeles again soon as I just can't bear to be without them. They are my pick-me-up when I'm feeling blue, they are a special treat after dinner, they are wonderful to share with lovers after a busy night.... I highly recommend them. They're not too sweet - they're just perfect! Gift someone else some pleasure!
