L.A. Burdick – Chocolate Dipped Fruit – Ginger

Maybe my fan-dom of Ginger has made it around the world and back?   And others are just making these ginger treats for my benefit.  I realize the reality that there are others that share the same passion.

LA Burdick, a small chain of shops, located in New England and New York City. One store, located in the Back Bay, I imagine is like the others – a chocolate lover’s haven.  It is also a ginger fan’s dream – Chocolate Dipped Ginger.

I have had more than one Dipped Ginger in my Time – it’s normally hard and bitter and completely covered in chocolate.  Frankly, I am rarely ever a fan.  The Burdick dipped ginger only covers half of the crystallized ginger.  It’s a high quality crystallized ginger as it firm to the initial bite, and then chewy once you get into it.  Along with the chocolatier’s mastery of his medium, the ginger is a highlight.When you purchase the ginger, the ginger comes in a well presented bag.

As you can see I sneaked some Ginger treats before taking my snapshots, I highly recommend these amazing treats.  I’ve had a number of bags of them, and I want more, as I am sure you will.

You can visit the shop in Back Bay, and experience it yourself.

Ginger Refresh

Interesting…

Not Yum.  Not oh-wow.

Just interesting.

As the Chocolate Therapy’s box inserts and website say “A truly unique experience of milk chocolate, ginseng ganache topped with a ginger gellee!”  I’m getting ahead of myself.  I needed to go to Bed Bath and Beyond to get my domestic skills upgraded.  I see out of the corner of my eye the magic word… “Chocolate”.  It is, after all the perfect gift.

I walk over to the store (a parking lot away), and enter a well appointed shop.  I see two cases full of chocolate art.  Many of the treats catch my eye.  My purchase included two of the following – Refresh.

It’s interesting, I’d recommend trying it, but don’t make it your only purchase.  A variety makes it worthwhile.
