Happy New Year, Anna (and readers of FFLA)!I'm a huge fan of L.A. Burdick. (In fact, if it's a publicly-traded company, you could probably make a few dollars by short-selling it when I leave town, and buying stock when I return. :) ) Aside from their (fabulous) hot chocolate, their chocolates are phenomenal. If you haven't gone already, don't get the large hot chocolate (which one of my friends referred to as a "trough"), and get some pave glace.
