A Modern Chocolate Lover’s Guide to Philadelphia

Imagine the scene: you’re in a specialty food store, staring at a chocolate shelf filled with dozens of options. Some bars are large and affordable, some are small and expensive. Some are certified organic, others are single origin.

Which one should you choose?

If you’re lucky, a knowledgeable store employee may be able to help you pick a bar you like. Otherwise, you may be tempted to pick the prettiest package/cheapest bar/biggest bar and regret your purchase at home.

Does the scene sound familiar? I know I’ve lived it early in my chocolate journey.

A year or so ago, I remember thinking, “wouldn’t it be nice if I could share some favorite shops and bars with people starting their chocolate journey?” And so the idea of “A Modern Chocolate Lover’s Guide to Philadelphia was born.

Today, the idea is now an Edible Philly magazine cover story that you can read in the latest issue of the magazine or online.

My goal for this piece was to create a guide you could throw in your purse to discover Philadelphia’s chocolate treasures — from chocolate-makers and chocolatiers to chocolate retailers, you’ll find recommendations that will help you kick start your own chocolate journey without the overwhelm.
