‘Tis the Season for Sweets and Treats: Austin Chocolate Shops

AUSTIN chocolate shops

In non-Texas places, October usually indicates the arrival of crisp fall weather. There’s a nip in the air, (fake) spider-webs on trees and pumpkin-spiced-EVERYTHING has taken over stores. It marks the season of comfort foods, with the mama of them all being chocolate.

Though there are many times where a couple of Lindt truffles from the Walgreen’s checkout counter are acceptable for filling your chocolate craving, there are several chocolate purveyors throughout Austin, so why not help Keep Austin Weird while indulging?
