Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite times of the year! My gracious husband always makes special memories for me, filled with surprises and lots of my favorite treat, CHOCOLATE! So obviously, I have to share with you one of my favorite chocolate shops. I am slowly but surely searching and visiting chocolatiers throughout the year, to discover the best chocolates throughout America.
I had the satisfying pleasure of visiting French Broad Chocolates, which is a chocolate lounge with the factory located above the lounge. They also have a brand new Chocolate & Milk Boutique-which serves homemade ice cream, coffee, artisan truffles, and more . I can not tell you how much I love this company. They are located in Ashville, North Carolina and purchases can be made online for personal treats and wholesales.
My 1st Visit/Taste:
My first visit was in May/2014 for my 14th year Anniversary. We went to Ashville, North Carolina to visit the beautiful Biltmore estate, after watching History channel’s documentary, “The Men Who Built America”. My husband knows that I am a chocolate fanatic so he typically plans for us to visit a chocolate lounge or store on our vacations. Once he informed me of my chocolate surprise, I was so excited to venture out for this delectable treat. Upon reaching French Broad, we could smell the chocolate aromas from the street. The chocolate lounge was a cute little lounge with French blue & chocolate adorning the walls and accessories. I was eager to get my hands on the menu and once my order arrived, I was satisfied. Here are some of the treats I had the pleasure of devouring:
1. Nibby brownie: a rich chocolate brownie with little bites of cocoa nibs.
2. Cold Sipping Chocolate: a cold glass of sipping chocolate served in wine glass with chocolate shaving; beautiful & delicious.
3. Customized box of signature chocolates, which I had the pleasure of choosing each truffle. I love the fact that they allow customers to create a customized box of chocolate and I had the pleasure of creating a box for Valentine’s via my gracious husband.
If you’re a chocolate lover like me, you will love French Broad Chocolates. If you’re ever in the Ashville area, visit the chocolate lounge. Or visit their online site and try their delicious treats in the comforts of your home. For more info, their links are posted below.
