Valentine's Day chocolate taste test
Beacon Hill ChocolatesPick your own assortment (about $50 a pound) at this place owned by Paula Barth. The presentation was the prettiest chocolates, according to one taster. Very light, honest flavors, but run-of-the-mill, nothing extravagant, exteriors too hard, minty center? not very minty, but dont know what it is, espresso filling good balance, an Oreo-like chocolate, two round dark wafers around a white chocolate center, a little too sweet, but adorable to look at, coconut is coconutty, not in love, kinda strange aftertaste, nice flavor, but cant identify it.
