I’ve been meaning to do a post about the Newfoundland Chocolate Company ever since we moved home. Valentine’s Day seems like the perfect time! I dashed over on my lunch this week and the place was hopping. I’m guessing I wasn’t the only one thinking about Feb 14! As I made my way over there, I was thinking about how Valentine’s Day can be controversial – not everyone likes it. Admittedly it is totally commercial, but really – in the middle of February everyone needs a pick me up. Going to buy some treats for my family gave me a little spring in my step (the sunshine helped too!). So as far as I’m concerned, bring on Valentine’s Day!
Now back to the Newfoundland Chocolate Company! The window display was very festive. You can’t really see the very large chocolate fountain running, but it looks rich and delicious! I wanted to just grab a cup and fill ‘er up. Note there was a sign warning people about only looking and no fingers (Eewwww! I might think about dipping a digit in, but I would never really do it lol).
Check out all the chocolate bark, chocolate flowers and LOVE bars. I was tempted to buy a LOVE bar for my honey, but they were milk chocolate, and he is partial to dark, so I went to check out some of the other selections.
My picture is blurry 😦 but I still wanted to show you anyway. I LOVE the shirt and tie heart boxes!
I forgot to take a picture of the truffle case, but trust me there was something for everyone. The St. John’s CBC morning radio show is having a contest and they are asking listeners to come up with ideas for a Wake Up Chocolate for the morning show. I can’t wait to hear what combination wins. Personally, I think you need coffee, caramel and dark chocolate, but that’s just me!
The above sign is on the sidewalk outside the store. Very True.
If you are needing a little mid-February pick-me-up, I highly recommend heading down to Duckworth Street and treating your loved ones to some Newfoundland Chocolate!
