Blue Frog Chocolates

New Orleans has an excellent locally owned (I really try and support local and small businesses) chocolatier called Blue Frog Chocolates, that specializes in both domestic and international chocolates.

Blue Frog Chocolates is located in a small cottage house that was converted into a business on 5707 Magazine Street (BTW there are LOTS of great shops on Magazine). It's a really cute house! The owners are Ann and Rick Streiffer. They have gorgeous yellow flowers on the outside and a frog mat that greets you at their front door. Very charming! If you would like to learn about the Legend of The Blue Frog and how it relates to chocolate, please click HERE. It's a very interesting story!

Come With Me, And You'll Be In A World of Pure Imagination! When you step inside, there's a beautiful mural on the wall of frogs and LOTS and LOTS of chocolate. There are chocolate gift baskets, gift trays, and of course boxes of chocolate! It's like a mini Willy Wonka Land at every corner. I think once you enter you just stand there for 10 minutes in pure awe and fascination. You really want to break out in song like Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory... "Pure Imagination!" HaHaHa

Look At ALL That CHOCOLATE! That's Chocolate!?! There's nothing that Blue Frog Chocolates doesn't have. They have wonderful Italian Confetti Candy Flowers that are imported from Sulmona, Italy. You can buy one or a bunch! They are truly exquisite. Forget regular chocolate bunny rabbits, they have EXTRAordinary chocolate items like a huge chocolate King Kong, chocolate alligators, crabs, crawfish, golf balls and ties! They sell chocolate sauces, pralines, bon bons, truffles, milk balls and even cute tshirts. When you stop by, definitely try Blue Frog Chocolates Icy Hot Chocolate. It is REALLY good!!!

Where Are The Blue Frogs? So you're probably asking, does Blue Frog Chocolates have any actual blue frogs? Why YES! They DO...but they're chocolate...not actual frogs! Did you spot them in the display case above? If so, you have a very good eye! Don't worry, they don't contain any frog parts! HaHaHa Just milk, dark and ahem blue chocolate! I just want to say this. Blue Frog Chocolates is a wonderful little chocolatier that has everything your little chocolate palette desires. Have a SWEET day everyone!

For a chocoholic like me, a visit to this wonderful store would be paradise and I love 'Carpe Chocolatum' - that's brilliant! Your cousin must have been delighted with your lovely gifts too.
