Pradel Chocolates is a traveler's treasure--a small store front in downtown Mendoza that sells handmade artesenal chocolates. It's on a side street off of the Peotonal--Mendoza's pedestrian mall.
Owner and chocolatier Miriam Beatriz Ahumada (pictured below) studied chocolate-making in Spain, returning to her native Argentina to share her delectable treats with all Mendoza. Her hand-decorated goodies send messages of love or felicitations.
And she knows how to get at the heart of what Argentineans are most passionate about: futbol! The photo below shows chocolates for the fan of Argentinean soccer team Boca Juniors...
Feliz Dia de los Enamorados, o Amor y Amistad o Dia de San Valentin, whatever you want to call it--a box of chocolates from me to you on this Valentine's Day! My love to all of you who read From Argentina With Love-- thank you for your support!
Calle 9 de Julio 1052
