I celebrated my birthday a couple weeks ago, and because I was still at home in Connecticut, my dad spoiled me with one of my favorite gifts - a delicious box of locally made Bridgewater Chocolates.
I love chocolate (who doesn't?) and among the basic American staples (hello Hershey kisses!) I've also sampled Mexican, German, and even South African... you name a chocolate, I've tried it. I always gravitate to Lindt or Teuscher as favorites, but leave it to Bridgewater's handmade confections to truly steal my heart.
You don't need a holiday like Valentine's Day to spoil your loved ones (or yourself!). While you're at it, check out National Geographic's picks for the 10 Best Chocolatiers in the World. Yum!
