I've always got my ear to the ground for the local fancy chocolate places, and when I beheld Schakolad Chocolate Factory in downtown St. Petersburg, I heard a rumbling. Though it may have been my tummy. Or the traffic.
You know the drill: rows and rows of exotic truffles, bark, fudge, what have you. Their prices are actually cheaper than any of the other such places I've been, and the quality is top-notch. And they're right down the block from a Bubble Tea place and a cupcake shop (and a cigar shop), so make the hipster stretch of Central Avenue your one-stop-shopping center for the best in bad things.
