Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate

Stop in at Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate at Krog Street Market to pick up a chocolate bar for your Valentine.

Mmmm. Chocolate is a traditional Valentine’s Day gift. Chocolate from Xocolatl (chock-oh-LAH-tul) Small Batch Chocolate is made the traditional way, which starts with the cacao bean. The chocolate experts at Xocolatl start by hand sorting cacao beans. Next, they roast the beans then crack them open to reveal the nibs, which are ground nonstop for several days. Ultimately liquid chocolate is molded into bars. A chocolate bar made with this much tradition and patience surely sends just the right message to anybody’s Valentine.

Where: Find Xocolatl chocolate in retail locations throughout Atlanta and beyond or shop the Krog Street Market store at 99 Krog St.
