Birmingham Chocolate

Where can I find a good selection of chocolate in Birmingham?

  1. Lots of places really. A few that come to mind - VRichards, Whole Foods, and The Fresh Market.

    One place that is great is SoHo Sweets...great truffles IMO.

    Is there anything in particular you are looking for?

      Nothing in particular...I'm new to town and my stash is running low. The Fresh Market might be a good spot, I haven't been to one since I lived in Raleigh. I like looking for interesting truffles and bars..things I haven't tried before. Does SoHo Sweets make their own chocolates?

        There's a chocolatier (I do not recall the name) in the Cahaba Village plaza next to the Whole Foods. It's in the middle of the plaza. Good chocolates. I think they make them in-house.

          Re - SoHo Sweets - I would guess they make their own, but I am not sure. I am pretty sure they make their IceCream or Gelato and Cheesecake, so I would guess they make the truffles.

          I know VRichards has a good selection of bars at the front, but I am not sure on the other places.

          I would check out WF and that other place BigDaddy suggested since they are next to eachother, and not TOO far from SoHo Sweets either.

            Angel Cakes in Mountain Brook makes their own chocolates ... or made, since I heard they might have closed recently, if anyone can confirm that.
