If you are looking for that special chocolate something for Christmas, you have got to check out For the Love of Chocolate in Carytown's Cary Court in Richmond. The aroma just walking in the door is enough to make you pick up a shopping basket and start looking.
For the Love of Chocolate is stocked to the rafters with every shape, form, style, and flavor of chocolate that you can possibly imagine from chocolatiers around the world. You can find everything from Neuhaus Belgian Chocolate ($15-$50), Lake Champlain milk and dark chocolate ($5-$30), and Joseph Schmidt's assorted chocolate and truffles ($5-$25) to a full line of the more accessible Lindt white, milk, and dark chocolates ($5-$35) and Giradelli chocolates ($1.50-$50).
There are so many adorable Christmas designs that I cannot even begin to describe them. Suffice it to say they would brighten up anyone's stocking.
It is a bit on the pricey side but most of the inventory is not something you will find in Target or other retail outlets. It is unique and perfect for that special holiday or occasion. We even found the 50% off aisle of Thanksgiving candy ... but, hey, chocolate is chocolate -- right? So we drove away with a large molded chocolate acorn filled with small chocolate acorns. Yum....
