Tour Partner Spotlight: For the Love of Chocolate
In today’s partner spotlight, we’re going to take a look inside Richmond’s largest chocolate store: For the Love of Chocolate!
Prepare your senses when you walk in the door at For the Love of Chocolate – your eyes will widen at the sight of thousands of different chocolate varieties and your nose will fill with the scent of cocoa and sugar. On the shelves of this Carytown sweet shop are chocolate pieces, drops, bars, bits, and more from dozens of countries. It’s nearly impossible not to find something you’ll like – choose from vegan, fair-trade, organic, gluten-free, sugar-free, peanut-free, or even kosher chocolate in all sorts of flavors ranging from standard milk chocolate to spicy bacon chocolate. And the store is worth checking out even if you don’t like chocolate; there are many other kinds of sweets to peruse, as well.
