Lecavalier Petrone

I'm baaack! Ish. I just had to review this place! Think about the best chocolate you've ever eaten. Delicious, right? WRONG. You've been duped. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Why, you say? Because if you haven't tried the chocolaty concoctions from Lecavalier Petrone, you've never actually HAD chocolate. 

They sell boxes of chocolates, cookies, cakes, individual desserts, and they always have special treats for holidays like Christmas, Easter, Valentine's day, etc...

For my mom's and stepdad's 70th birthday, we celebrated as much as we could, in these effin' COVID times (oh ya, I'm totes enraged at COVID now). Part of the birthday good times was a cake. My neighbor works at Lecavalier Petrone and about 3 seconds after she told me where she worked, I was on their website ordering a cake.

We ordered the chocolate-fleur de sel cake. Obviously this was bound to be good. But we didn't know HOW good. Holy shite! Wow wow WOW.  First of all, it looked perfect. That never hurts. On top, there were pieces of chocolate, of fleur de sel, and some meringue. The cake itself had the perfect consistence, and just the right amount of creaminess. Between the layers, there was this fleur de sel coulis with pieces of freaking caramel, what in the...HEAVEN! Is it made out of gold? Well, maybe it is. I love sweet stuff, but usually, not the biggest fan of store bought cakes because its always too sweet, or the icing is artificial... But I should've known better. With this cake in particular, I didn't want the deliciousness to end. I'm lactose intolerant, and regrets. Woooorth iiiiiit! 

Might as well talk about the chocolates my neighbor brought me a couple weeks ago. Let's face it, when there's chocolate in front of me, I WILL eat it. She brought me a box of 4 chocolates (OMG, imagine she would've brought me a box of 12? I would've gained 10 pounds, right there!) and, well I think you know where I'm going with this... Oh. My. Effin. GAWD. First off, they are the most beautiful and colorful chocolates I've ever seen. Second of all, they tasted soooo good. I mean, I looked at them, and 1 minute later, they were in my mouth. Didn't even have time to check what flavor they were. I know, my chocolate addiction is realzzz. Hence why I never have any in my apartment haha! They were melt-in-your-mouth bites of loveliness. 

And now, le score: 12 sur 10. Du jamais vu!

I don't even think that "will you go back?" is an actual question.
