I took a trip into the Boston area today. Originally I had planned to visit Taza chocolates, thinking they had a cafe. I had heard/thought that they had a place in Central Square where you could sit and have hot cocoa and eat chocolates. I was bummed out to find that the place didn't really exist. I called to find out what the deal was, and they told me they only have a meeting once in a while in central square where people can do that. Their factory is in Sommerville, and they dont' have a shop there either.
So I went to Temper Chocolates on Com. Ave. I got some chocolates, and had a hot cocoa. It was okay. Interestingly, I like their chocolates more than Burdick's, but I like Burdick's cocoa more than Temper's.
Then, I had a craving for Burdick's hot chocolate. So on my way back home, I went to Harvard square and got one. Yum. But I didn't bother getting chocolates. I did, however, stop in at Cardullo's and buy some Dolfin. I was going to get Lake Champlain Small World Truffles, but there weren't any.
Are there any other places I could try for my chocolate/hot chocolate fix? I actually live in Worcester County, but I don't think there's any place out here. I go in to the city from time to time.
