LA Burdick Chocolate
Candy & Sweet Shops in Cambridge, MA
In 1984, Larry Burdick started making chocolates in New York City for a tiny number of fine restaurants and caterers. L. A. Burdick Chocolate uses only the highest couverture from Switzerland, France, and Venezuela, made from primarily South American, Central American, and Caribbean beans. From this beginning, L. A. Burdick Chocolate has evolved into a thriving direct mail and web business situated in Walpole, New Hampshire. We cook in tiny batches and cut and shape all our bonbons by hand.

In 1987, our founder and the company's namesake Larry Burdick returned from training as a chocolatier in Bern, Switzerland bearing a chocolate pot, guitar cutter for cutting ganache, dipping forks, and one radical idea. He desired to make chocolate confections that could truly be called chocolate. At the time, what was called chocolate in America was often mass-produced, molded candy, made mostly of sugar and flavored with poor-quality cocoa.
