Well readers, you've survived Friday the 13th! Whether your Friday was freaky, frightening, funky, or - ahem - that other f-word descriptor, you deserve a pick-me-up!
Where to find such a sweet salve? Well, readers, this Examiner is currently on a southern sojourn and just returned from a stop at the absolutely amazing Chocolate South, a chocolate specialty store located in Atlanta, GA. Now, this Examiner has seen (and tasted!) her fair share of chocolate shops. I know the drill.
Let me tell you, readers - Chocolate South is an entirely different sort of instrument. The shop and all it has to offer merits, quite frankly, an honest to goodness jaw drop.
You see, Chocolate South offers not just delights for your taste buds but also bits of tantalization for the sweet tooth in your brain. The display includes both a sweets counter and a book display. Whether you're just looking for some eye candy or craving something you can really sink your teeth into, Chocolate South has everything from picture books about chocolate to the Coes' nearly 300-page The True History of Chocolate - and you can read them all for free in-store.
However, for those who are really interested in becoming a gourmet of chocolate knowledge, Amy, the owner, happily lends out books from her own hefty collection to customers.
Now, all you Los Angeles readers might be wondering - well, what about us? Angelinos, Chocolate South is honestly superior to any shop I've come across in the Golden State. Creativity, knowledge, friendliness, and an orgasmic chocolate selection con library? This chocolate store's got it all.
And Angelinos, YOU can have some of it too! That's right; Chocolate South ships. Cue Hallelujah chorus.
So go ahead. Check out their website. Order online. If you happen to live in the Atlanta area, go ahead and stop by to check out Amy's book collection (and sample her culinary art while you're there!) Amy herself is full of southern hospitality and will be happy to talk to you about what events are going on around town and - well, whatever else you might care to talk about! Whether it's your brain or your buds that need a little extra TLC, Chocolate South should definitely be your destination.
