Good Food Pittsburgh and a519 Chocolate collaborate on Valentine’s chocolates.

A collaboration between Good Food Pittsburgh and Millvale’s a519 Chocolate makes for a “hometown” Valentine’s Day chocolate box of truffles featuring some flavorful Pittsburgh businesses.

The 15-piece edition includes the following flavors, among what might best be described as decadent:

• Burnt Almond Torte, inspired by Pittsburgh’s (and Greensburg’s) Prantl’s Bakery, this truffle features homemade marzipan with a smooth and creamy Dulcey ganache;

• Roasted Pecan/Bourbon/Maple Sugar, made with Pennsylvania bourbon from Pittsburgh’s Wigle Whiskey, maple syrup from Potter County’s Paul Family Farms, and roasted pecans;

• Cherry Balsamic, sweet cherries paired with a hint of balsamic;

• Red Wine, Pittsburgh Winery zinfandel-infused 70-percent dark chocolate ganache;

•Vanilla Bean Custard, creamy vanilla bean custard enveloped in white chocolate.

Only 50 of the $35 boxes will be sold.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
