Eat with your Eyes: L.A. Burdick

A couple of years ago I placed an order with L.A. Burdick just before Easter. (Full set of photos here.)

Crispy Eggs from LA Burdick

I ordered a box of Chocolate Crispy Eggs.

It contained a little milky plastic box with four eggs, two in dark chocolate and one in white and one in milk.

The chocolate eggs are about the size of a small chicken egg and are filled with a rich, creamy and not-too-sweet gianduia (chocolate/hazelnut cream) and some little crispies (kind of like corn flakes).

  1. Damn you. I live in Cambridge, MA, just minutes from the L.A. Burdick in Harvard Square. I’d been ignoring the call of their hot chocolate for the fast few days, but now…

  2. Ah the call of L.A. Burdick… I am in complete love with their chocolates and get them when I go to Harvard Square.  The best chocolates I have ever had.

  3. Oh, L.A. Burdick!  I have friends in Cambridge that I see a couple times a year, and walking over for a cup of their hot chocolate (I always get the dark kind) is the perfect thing for a chilly day.  I’ve so far not gone for the chocolate candies, though—they look lovely, but it’s hard to justify the expense when you’re already set to enter chocolate beverage heaven.  I really like the way they pack the candies into dense little cubes as an alternative to flat boxes.
