In search of the perfect chocolate, who isn’t? Chocolate can be a variety of things to a variety of people. It can range from an old fashioned Hershey’s milk chocolate bar to a dark chocolate truffle. The art of making chocolate varies in style but its method has remained relatively unchanged, unlike many other things in this world. Those rich, smooth chocolate delights made from the most exquisite cocoa beans, ground, melted, and crafted to have each morsel savored as it moves across your palette. Or, the crack of a Hershey’s bar as you break off a piece of that compact, milky sweet chocolate and let it melt in your mouth.
Now that I have your attention, you may want to learn more about where you can find the very best chocolate. This review of the ‘World’s Best Chocolate’ is a fantastic online tour of the best chocolate boutiques from around the world.
