Sucre

I’ve been on a bit of a filled chocolate kick lately, so it was a happy coincidence that I was recently contacted by Sucre — a chocolate shop in New Orleans.  They wanted to know if I would like to try a selection of their New Orleans themed confections.

The chocolates were all quite tasty, but I have a few favorites that I’d like to mention:

  • Sicilian Pistachio — Nutty with a little cinnamon kick.  This was very tasty!
  • Torrone — Sweet, crunchy and nutty with a hint of salt.  Reminded me a bit of a upscale Kit Kat.
  • Avery — Great saltiness combined with a hint of burnt sugar.
  • Magnolia — Pecan all the way. 

I liked that there was some regional flair to this assortment.  Everything tasted of fresh cream and high quality chocolate and I would highly recommend Sucre if you are in New Orleans, but you can also shop online.  And I have to say, I love their green & brown boxes too — cute packaging is always a plus!
