The decor at the L.A. Burdicks store was off the hook. There were stacks of pheasant feather swirls on various surfaces. This Cacao wreath was the most stunning piece. The last time I've seen a Cacao shell was on my honeymoon in St. Lucia at a chocolate plantation. The wreath is beautiful on it's own, but seeing the Cacao left me with a quiet comfort of knowing burdicks chocolate came, not from a hershey's preservative packing conveyor belt, but from the purest source -- the seed.
