Raleigh, N.C. — Two of our favorites are featured in this month's issue of GQ Magazine - Videri Chocolate and actor Matthew McConaughey!
McConaughey is on the cover and on page 152 the Raleigh chocolate factory gets a shout-out under the "Chocolate to Die For" item. Their 90 percent Ecuadorian Dark bar is pictured.
"It's only cocoa beans and sugar, but it tastes like a thousands little things, changing from ginger to dark roasted peanuts, with jasmine tea on your breath afterward. Despite being 90 percent dark chocolate, there's none of that how-bitter-can-I-handle-it machismo," the writer states.
The shout-out is among a few exciting things happening for Videri right now. Owners are putting in a new, larger confection display case and prepping for the holiday season. Definitely drop by and check out their Pumpkin, Spice, Latte confections - you get two of each flavor in a box. We loved the spice (chai) flavored ganache!
