The Best Chocolate in Town
Cabernet Balsamic - Good
Almond Butter Date - Good ++ - Very Good
Vegan Pistachio Cherry - Good
Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Indiana Theme Week, where I wandered around Indianapolis, IN, sampling more local chocolates. (See post number two for today for a bonus chocolate.)
One of the local Indiana chocolate vendors you'll see at this week's Indianapolis Chocolate Fest is The Best Chocolate in Town (Indianapolis, CA).
A friend (thank you Toni!) had brought back chocolates from this company to share after a trip she took a few years ago. So I knew I'd visit The Best Chocolate in Town during this week's Indianapolis trip.
I bought four chocolates in their shop on upper Massachusetts Avenue (aka Mass Ave if you're a local), and sampled three today.
Of the Cabernet Balsamic, Almond Butter Date and Vegan Pistachio Cherry chocolates, the Almond Butter Date was the hands-down favorite.
Biting into this chocolate yielded a burst concentrated date and nutty flavor and texture. A moist chewy date was stuffed with almond butter and enveloped in chocolate. It was full of rich natural sweetness, without being too sugary.
