Valentine's Day chocolate taste test
Chocolee ChocolatesChoose from the large display case ($1 to $1.50 per piece): clamshells, cones with gold edges, coconut-topped domes, and ultra-thin bark, which are packed in a brown box, the layers separated with tissue. Box has a stylish, but homemade quality, unusual flavors, such as dried fig with marzipan, chocolate-dipped fig looks amazing, creamy, intense chocolate, very fresh, truffle inside wonderful, caramel intense but not too chewy, caramel gooey but not too sweet, the way dark chocolate should be. Others: licorice an unpleasant surprise, spicy filling is strange.
