Alternately titled: Chocolate Lovers Unite!!
Cocoanuts Boston in the North End. Blog and Tweet Boston organized this event and I was very excited to go again. You may remember I attended a previous event here about a year ago. On the way I had to snap a photo of the North End Christmas tree!
Rachel went too and it was nice to catch up while eating chocolate! It was nice to see several other bloggers there too. I love how every time I go to an event I meet a new blogger. Boston is filled with amazing bloggers! Now let's get on with it. Here are the photos of the yummy treats. . .
Raaka Chocolate was there with plenty of samples. I liked the vegan milk flavor. It was very tasty while being dairy and gluten free! This company is socially responsible - they are fair trade and green.
These caramels are AMAZING! I love the black lava sea salt and Rachel loved the rosemary truffle sea salt (very savory). These caramels were soft and chewy without getting stuck in your teeth! McCrea's Candies is another local company and Jason was there to share his passion. I love people who love what they do! This is a must try and those "tubes" would make a great stocking stuffer!
The owners of Cocoanuts are so sweet. I even scored a couple of restaurant recommendations while there. Might as well get the scoop from those who have lived and worked in the North End for several years!!!
I love that this shop is small and sells so many local products. Anyone can go to those regular candy stores but you are sure to find something unique and delicious here without breaking the bank!!
