Who needs an excuse to try some chocolate? Well, I stopped by the new chocolate/confections store located at 1025 N. Fillmore Street, Arlington, VA 22201 named Artisan Confections. Known for their small-batch chocolates with a dedication to “timeless techniques with a modern aesthetic.” It’s a small grab-and-go kind of outlet for chocolates to eat, give, and enjoy by the batches:
The chocolate is made with NO preservatives and have a shelf-life of about 2 weeks. Decorations are designed by local artists, and they have 4 seasonal flavors that change with the time of year.
When I was there, I sampled the Raspberry chocolate (and – here’s my big confession – I don’t have a huge sweet tooth myself…even for chocolate) but this was great!
