Confections offered in NorthportBy Matt Lund | 04/06/2015 10:40pm
Easter has passed, and the chocolate you gave up for Lent can return to your life. It’s come a long way since the days of bitter roasted brews consumed with reverence by various Mesoamerican subcultures. Today, chocolate is everywhere, ubiquitous in grocery stores, gas stations and even the vending machine outside your class.
So when you decide to indulge, and indulge you should, in smooth chocolate bliss, make sure it’s good enough to be worth it.
Peterbrooke Chocolatier has been operating out of a small storefront in Northport since 2007. Producing a large variety of confections, the fine chocolate makers at Peterbrooke should be able to provide whatever your sweet tooth is craving. House-made gelato, caramel apples and the recent addition of chocolate pizzas highlight some of the more complex features. And of course various bags, bins and baskets of chocolate-dipped strawberries, popcorn, Oreos, pretzels and peanut butter crackers are strewn around the store.
A veritable carousel of chocolate-covered morsels inevitably grabs the attention, and cellophane bags will fill themselves while somehow using your hands. Dark chocolate pecans, milk chocolate cranberries and blueberries and house-made dark chocolate malted milk balls are my favorites. Whatever you choose, you can be sure it will be better than a Snickers bar. Buy just for yourself or use gift bags as an excuse to go. Either way, enjoy Peterbrooke Chocolatier.
