Stylish Chocolates for the Kardashians

By Laura Medina

Kim Kardashian picked the Chocolate-Covered Orange Peels
Fashionable patterns and designs transcend beyond clothes. They migrate into the hearts of celebrities' sweet tooth. As this writer's dad said, "Not only does it has to taste good. It must look good."
This tradition has started in the Fifties when Compartes Chocolatier catered plump dried fruits coated in chocolate to Frank Sinatra. Third generation chocolatier, Jonathan Grahm, pushed it into the twentieth-first century with electic, international flavors dressed in punchy patterns and bold designs personifying the globe-trotting spices and texture with some remixed Americana classics.
A new generation of celebrities discovered Compartes, ranging from Marcia Cross and Harrison Ford to the Kardashian women.
In throwing a party for one of their show's executive producer, the girls provide party favors and enjoyed some chocolates while shopping.
Kim Kardashian went with the Compartes classic, candied orange peels drenched in chocolate.

Khloe likes the Love Nuts
The girls headed over for the new revamped Americana classics. Khloe shared crunchy Love Nuts with her sisters, caramelized nuts coated in milk chocolate then dusted in cocoa powder.

Kourtney is a fan of the Honey Peanut Butter Sea Salt Truffles

Kourtney loves the gooey, chewy Honey Peanut Butter with crunchy Sea Salt Truffles.

Mom Kris is obsessed with the milk chocolate sea salt caramels.

Their mom, Kris Jenner, is preferred the more timeless Sea Salt Caramels dressed in milk chocolate.

Despite the image of the weight-conscious celebrity, they, once in awhile, do treat themselves...and they usually head to Compartes.
