Forget your weight loss program once you enter Lagusta’s Luscious chocolate shop. You’ll see rows and rows of truffles, bonbons, caramels, toffees, chocolate bars, and chocolate of all flavors, sizes, shapes and colors. Everything is hand-made, organic, vegan, and made of ingredients that are fair-trade or from local farms.
Lagusta’s chocolates serve as proof that something so sinfully delicious can also be healthy and made with the environment in mind. But once you are in the store, you probably aren’t thinking about the environment – instead, you’re thinking how many chocolate boxes you can stuff in your bag and which exactly to choose. There are beet-coriander truffles, truffles with pomegranate and lemon, chocolates with yuzu cream, and chocolates with figs and fennels. You can also subscribe to their Chocolate of the Month Club and get monthly specials sent to your home.
