- The Estate
Christophe Paume, a third-generation French chocolatier, came to the United States to share his passion for artisan chocolate with the city of Charleston and beyond.
Mendiant is a traditional French confection of delicate chocolate discs, dried fruits, and nuts. Christophe’s dark chocolate mendiant is topped with blueberry, cranberry, pecan, almond, and pistachio. Originally created to look like old-fashioned coins, mendiant translates to “beggar” in English. Treat yourself to these fruit and nut covered "coins," or share with someone special. Handmade in Charleston, SC.
