Best of Boston

1995 Best Chocolatier

Prides Crossing Confections

This confectioner, which started as the tiny store along Route 127, is the source for delicious chocolates, made on the premises. The barks are great, the jellies fruity, the fudge creamy. Best of all is the caramel, which appears in pecan turtles, with almonds, and by itself.
