Hello, my name is Liz, and I’m a gourmet chocolate addict.
I love chocolate. I love gourmet chocolate to be exact. Gourmet chocolate is real chocolate; it is more cocoa vs sugar. Gourmet chocolate is really guilt-free. It is actually good for you. Healthy chocolate improves your mood, helps weight loss, lowers blood pressure and it is filled with antioxidants (more on Health Benefits of Chocolate)
I’m not the only person who loves chocolate. Chocolate is popularly loved. Therefore, there are multiple days dedicated to celebrating chocolate. Some of those dates are World Chocolate Day on July 7, National Milk Chocolate Day on July 28, National Chocolate Day on October 28, and Chocolate Covered Anything Day on December 16. Halloween is probably the most celebrated chocolate holiday.
In honor of National Chocolate Day and Halloween, here is a couple of my favorite local gourmet chocolatiers in Los Angeles:
John Kelly Chocolates
John Kelly Chocolates is delicious handmade artisanal chocolate. All of the chocolates are natural, kosher and gluten-free. The chocolate is very rich and the fudge truffles, their specialty, is mouth-watering. The boutique is very elegant. The prepackaged boxes make amazing gifts. Made in LA.
This boutique has the most colorful designed chocolates with the most interesting flavors like rose water, milk chocolate avocado, and white chocolate matcha. The chocolates have fun names like Donuts and Coffee, Apple Pie, Coney Island, California Love, and Cereal Bowl. Made in LA.
One word. Lavender. This boutique has lavender chocolate. How awesome is that? It’s my newest obsession. This boutique services yummy cakes and food too. Made in LA.
What is your favorite chocolate?
