A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

Happy Valentine’s Day!! Just in time, a look at chocolates from LA Burdick’s newest store located at 22 Clarendon Street between Newbury and Boylston.

This boutique is located in the Back Bay and offers retail sales only at this time. Drinks and Pastries will be available at this location later this year. The store had a nice selection of boxed chocolate as well as bars and other chocolate gifts (I’m looking forward to trying the hot chocolate). I bought a few petite wood box assortments ($16) for friends and one small wood box assortment ($20) for my Valentine! How cute is the packaging on the Valentine’s box? Almost too cute to open…

Here is what the different sizes contain:

“Our classic wood box assortments are tied with seasonal French wired ribbon and stamped with a gold wax seal. The large wood assortment holds approximately 64 pieces and 2 small mice. The medium wood assortment holds approximately 32 pieces and 2 small mice. The small wood assortment holds approximately 16 pieces and 1 small mouse. The petite holds approximately 10 pieces and 1 small mouse.”

Of course I picked up a few pieces from the a la carte case for myself! The milk chocolate mouse ($3)-which has a mocha center and two crunchy almond slivers as the ears.

Here’s a look at the inside. The ganache center was really smooth.

The white chocolate mouse has a cinnamon center and the dark chocolate has an orange center. All are hand made.

The penguin ($3.50), also adorable, comes with a lemon center.  These would make such cute wedding favors, check out their website for details.
