Not so when we stumbled upon Whetstone Chocolatiers.
I knew we were in trouble when we saw the sign above the door boasting that the Food Network voted Whetstone one of the best spots in America for Chocolate Lovers (See Whetstone under South for Chocolate Tasting).
The product lived up to the hype. Hubby and I sample a lot of chocolate brands and, like water, chocolate is one of those things on which we just won’t compromise. Fortunately, the health benefits of dark chocolate also are numerous. Which is one of the reasons it’s our sweet treat of choice.
The De Soto select blend dark chocolate with 64% cocoa was my favorite. Smooth to perfection. Its flavor was consistent and sweet but not too sweet; its overall taste is even and silky without bitter aftermath.
If St. Augustine is too far to go, order a delectable online. It will be well worth the wait.
