In Search of Good Chocolate


Brown, Monique R., Black Enterprise


Here are some scrumptious treats to satisfy your sweet tooth

It was a hard, yet flavorful journey to the world's finest chocolates. No piece went unturned--or uneaten, for that matter. Quality chocolates--and there are many--"are unbelievably smooth and melt quickly in your mouth," offers Lisbeth Echeandia, the publisher of Confectioner magazine. "And there is a big difference between the quality of fresh chocolates [made within 24 hours] and the [prepackaged] ones that you buy in the store," declares Timothy Moriarty, features editor of Chocolatier magazine.
