You Had Me At Chocolate

Prepare to rethink everything you thought you knew about chocolate.

Baylee’s Best Chocolates on 419 is a decadent experience, from the basic solid milk chocolate to lovely unique creations involving caramel, berry and (yes!) Himalayan salt. The cases are filled with delights, each more tempting than the last. I really couldn’t tell you which of the many things I tasted was the best – each of the morsels was completely right in its creation, and this is the reason a box of chocolates was created.

Hand-crafted in the store, by the goddess of chocolate herself, these sweets are surprising, velvety, smooth-luscious, at times even fizzy. Please do yourself a favor and go by and visit. [Baylee isn't open this coming Sunday, but promises she will be open Sundays soon.] Standing in the store, surrounded by two cases of gourmet custom goodness, from cordials to chocolate lollipops, even the air is better inside. Breathe deeply and take your time; it's a difficult choice.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this is the source for a box of chocolates that is as delightful to receive as it is to give. Allow extra time for sampling and for being choosy.
