Fleurir is a charming chocolate boutique that produces and sells exquisite chocolate bonbons and treats. Chocolatier Robert Ludlow creates innovative flavors out of quality ingredients that include lavender shiraz, peanut butter banana, and lemon honey.
My favorite is the classic salted caramel. Apparently the New York Times agrees—in February 2013, it named Fleurir's the best creamy and classic caramel in a nation-wide taste test.
Fleurir has a storefront and kitchen in Old Town, Alexandria.
