Gourmet Chocolates, Norman Love Confections
Artistic chocolates by Norman Love Confections
Chocoholics rejoice! Norman Love (239-687-7215) is constantly winning awards for his artistic chocolates, and with good reason. He creates truffles, dark chocolates, milk chocolates, white chocolates and his trademark Black chocolates. For the latter he uses single origin dark chocolate from five different chocolate-producing areas: Venezuela, Tanzania, Peru, Dominican Republic and Ghana. Each claims its own distinct flavor profile. The chocolates and truffles explode in your mouth with delightful, potent flavors from Florida and beyond, such as passion fruit, Key lime, mango, espresso, peanut butter banana and hazelnut praline, plus special seasonal editions.
Cinnamon-sugar doughnuts, Café & Bar Lurcat
The pastry chef whips them up by the dozen, made fresh to order, and sends them out with a side of chocolate sauce. The warm cinnamon-sugar doughnuts appear at happy hour, on the restaurant menu and on the late-night bar menu. (cafelurcat.com, 239-213-3357)
