Sure, everyone loves the chocolate. The British certainly do, and they are currently riled up about Toblerone which recently was reduced in size by 10%. You are familiar with the chocolate bar produced by Modelez International. You never really see the chocolate in the States unless you are at an airport for some reason, but certainly feel compelled to purchase the bar that is divided into bite-sized triangles.   Continue reading

Billed as the eighth wonder of the world, the Chocolate Wunderfall at Golden Corral is now fully operational. Here you can share your reach into a splash of warm chocolaty ooze with dozens of strangers, looking gleefully into their eyes as you coalesce bits of marshmallow and fruit into a pool of sweet gluttony.  How can this possibly be a good idea? The fountain has always creeped me a bit, reminding me of Augustus Gloop who nearly drowned in Wonka’s chocolate river.  These are the things that sweet bacterial dreams are made of.     Continue reading

We Need a Chocolate Souffle Fix

souffle2by Steven Doyle

Dallas has so many wonderful hot spots that can supply your secret stash of chocolate. We would certainly recommend Dude, Sweet Chocolate with three locations in the DFW area (with a fourth about to open in McKinney), CocoAndre in Oak Cliff, and Kate Weiser in Trinity Groves (soon to open another location) for starters. Don’t forget Katy Priore’s bark Chocolate that she sells at Carbone’s and other Dallas locations such a Bolsa Mercado who is also about to open her own shop at the Dallas Farmers Market.

We do love our chocolate. We also also enjoy it in souffle form, and we have found some of the best places to drop a few dollars on the light and airy dessert that makes a meal more special.  Continue reading
