When I was in Paris, I thought that I ate the best chocolates. One of my friends sent me some Belgian chocolates, to compare, but I was not convinced. I have tried the best of chocolates from Harrods. I used to partake of some fine chocolates in SF and New York. All are fine. But, then, by accident, while shopping in Southwest Florida, someone suggested Norman Love Chocolates in Fort Myers. (11380 Lindbergh Blvd.). It is easy to get to. One takes the Daniels Pkwy exit off the 75, go East, and make a left into a plaza. (Boston Red Sox spring training ball park is close by.) There is plenty of parking. Norman Love Chocolates is at the very end of the plaza. Once you enter, your senses are transformed. On the counter you will always find a free sample (one per customer). You can choose to purchase chocolates individually or per box. They also ship for you. (http://www.normanloveconfections.com/) For the holidays, I prefer to purchase one of the chocolate boxes. Otherwise, I spend a bit of time choosing which flavor to enjoy. I usually go for the Venezuelan dark chocolate and Florida orange but Hot Dark Chocolate has jalapeno peppers so I come back to it from time to time. Ginger Lime tempts me but Tiramisu is one of my favorites. They are all so seductive. I usually have to have a hot chocolate and take some time to decide. I take my seat at one of the many tables at the side and ponder. Sometimes I just buy a coffee and a pastry, but that is after I have chosen. The staff are professional, helpful and friendly. Norman Love, the pastry chef, is around to talk to the patrons. The atmosphere is always friendly. These chocolates have won many an award and, yes, they are located in Fort Myers, Florida. There is another store in Naples, Florida, but I have not had the pleasure of visiting that one. I have had them ship chocolates for me and I have had nothing but the finest service. One cannot go wrong. If you are anywhere in the vicinity of Southwest Florida, you owe it to yourself to have a taste of these chocolates. Otherwise, order them online and treat yourself to the finest.
