I love chocolate. From as far back I can remember, I've always preferred chocolate to vanilla, fudge to caramel, and chocolate pudding to tapioca. My mother used to make two different types of every dessert because my brother is the polar opposite. He prefers vanilla. You can imagine how excited I was when Dr. Oz announced that dark chocolate has many health benefits for the heart and the mind. Studies show that in moderation, chocolate improves mood, curbs depression, and can help the heart. It doesn't get much better than that.
This weekend, I stumbled upon the amazing chocolate boutique, Teuscher. This Swiss chocolate store is filled with paper mache chocolate holders, bright candy wrappers, and truffles in all shapes and flavors. This store is literally an adult candyland layered with sophisticated decor and decadent aromas. I am excited to go back and sample more chocolate delights.
