Let me preface this by saying I have an enormous sweet tooth and I love chocolate – I mean, I really love chocolate. When I was little I wasn’t allowed to have chocolate or any other sugar before bed because I would not sleep, in fact I would be bouncing off the wall (subsequently driving my parents nuts). Some times even now if I have too much chocolate or ice cream before bed, I tend to get a little bit goonie. So, you can imagine how perked up I became at the mention of a new chocolate boutique opening in Boston’s North End – appropriately named Cocoanuts. Luckily for me, Blog and Tweet Boston kindly offered me an invite to a chocolate tasting there last Tuesday with a bunch of fabulous Boston Bloggers.
Let me share a little bit about Cocoanuts. Cocoanuts is owned by besties Jen and Tara who have created a little bit of a ‘snacker’s heaven’ in their completely adorable boutique in the North End. Along with their amazing selection of chocolates and sweets, they also have a mix of savory options (such as popcorn, nuts and pretzels) – there is literally something for everyone there.
Also helping to feed my addiction were Heather and Melissa of Little Bits Toffee. They had a delectable assortment of toffee for sampling – my favorite was the sea salt toffee (I pretty much like everything with sea salt).
And then there was Rebecca of Yes Chocolates, who believes that chocolate (and sweets in general) should be fun. Case in point: brownie pops and her ‘Perfect Pour’ chocolates, aka Guinness and dark chocolate (are you taking notes for Saint Patty’s day??).
Between indulging in my sweet tooth, getting to know the ladies behind Cocoanuts, seeing some of my fav. bloggers and meeting some awesome new ones – I had such a blast.
So here is my recommendation to y’all (especially as Valentine’s day rapidly approaches), get to Cocoanuts stat.

Seriously, they have the best/cutest/most delicious items and they make great gifts that can be customized and personalized. Clearly I bought a bunch of stuff – what can I say – I can’t help myself.
