Chocolates Pradel–Pradel Chocolates

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!
