FROM BEAN TO BONBON
L.A. Burdick is a European chocolate company that started here in 1987. Larry Burdick wanted to make chocolates that would impress the finest. When this beautiful wooden box arrived, it was a site to been seen. These boxes are made exclusively for L.A. Burdick from sustainably harvested rubber tree wood. If this much attention was given to a box, think about the chocolates! There was a stunning array of little sweet bites and a hefty list to go along with them. The chocolate mice were adorable! They are a classic at L.A. Burdick and are made in three differeent flavors: Dark with an orange interior, Milk with a mocha interior, and White with a hint of cinnamon interior. I loved the dark with orange. The little ribbon tails were the perfect touch! A few other favorites were the Fig bonbon: dark chocolate interior with a balanced flavor of fig and port wine, the Cognac Truffle: dark Grenadian chocolate, rich smooth cream and cognac, dusted in cocoa powder, and the Poire Baton: whipped dark chocolate ganache with Poire Williams, coated in dark chocolate and garnished with a thin pear slice. You can never go wrong with the caramels as well, done in dark, milk, and white chocolates. The flavors were so distinct, I felt like I could taste the actual ingredients. These handmade chocolates are made from the freshest ingredients, no artificial colorings, and no preservatives. You can tell! A box of chocolates is always the perfect gift, and L.A. Burdick makes it extra special. The next time you’re in need of a chocolate fix, head to L.A. Burdick!
