A Sweet Valentine!



You have seen Fort Myers' legendary confectioner, Norman Love, before.  Here are some Valentine treats.  Six weeks ago, National Geographic named Norman Love as #5 on its list of The 10 Best Chocolatiers in the World.  Any dissenters?

They sure are pretty. Since I'm on a sugar-free diet, I'll give my portion to you, Jack. (By the way, nice caption suggestion yesterday.)

Kate said...

Jack, Happy Valentine's Day to you! ....may you find love eternal in both familiar and unexpected places!

Luis Gomez said...

Malyss said...

I'm with Brattcat: Glad to be away, or.. I don't know what could happen! "Wild love"? "Peachy kiss"?OMG......

Pam and Wayne said...

Ahhh...my eternal love is right there in those photos! Adding this chocolatier to my travel list for sure.

Cezar and Léia said...

The list of best chocolatiers seems weighted towards places in the USA.

#5 by National Geographic and I haven't tried them yet. I had better get busy. If they taste as good as they look, they could be down right dangerous.

What a "sweet" start for my day, Jack!! Oh, so delicious! Happy Valentine's Day!!

Lois Evensen said...

Oh, yum! Happy Valentine's Day to you, too. :)

This is a sweet treat for the end of my day Jack, would be pretty hard to choose ..'passion pannacotta' is looking particularly tempting!

RedPat said...

Too many decisions - I'll have to try one of each heart and get to the other treats later. Happy Valentine's Day Jack!

LONDONLULU said...

It is quite cruel to tempt us with all these choices! Beautiful display, I would find the red hot love hard to resist!

ladyfi said...

Oh, my favourites! Lovely shots.

cieldequimper said...

Oh good grief! I thought I'd made a choice when I studied the first photo but that was before I saw NY cheesecake in the second.

This is a VERY scrumptious and unfair post!

ohhh... really sweet, I love chocolate.
Happy Valentine's Day, Jack!

What a great shop and some pretty clever names of those sweets. Lovely choice for Valentine's Day! Have a super day!

Tanya Breese said...

yummy photos! happy valentine's day!

CaT said...

looks so very pretty!

Lowell said...

Do you love Norman Love's chocolates? If so, I think you are well justified to do so. Did you buy some of these for Mrs. Jack? If not, you'd better hope Mr. Love is open tonight!

Michelle said...

I'll take one of each, please.

Kay said...

National Geographic list? Oh, dear! It sounds like I'm going to have a bucket list after all, working my way through the 10 Best Chocolatiers in the World.

I do admire that the selections in your photos look untouched. You've a stronger will than I. I've found one cannot be too careful in vetting posts. . .

Dianne said...

I'll be happy with a Peachy Keen Kiss Jack or maybe two.

VP said...

I would like to try one for every kind...

Florida is looking more and more attractive....

Et bien voilà des étages bien appétissants.
Attention les *poignées d'amour *.

Un petit bonjour de Lausanne en Suisse.

Joan Perry; Sidewalk Curator said...

Oh yum! This is the magical season - valentine's candy on sale and Easter already on the shelf.

Looking at those (especially the New York Cheesecake)... I'd think I'd died and gone to heaven!
