Best chocolate in the world is . . . here?

Travel + Leisure has a slide show with its picks for the 10 best new sweet shops. Click through and the show lists shops in Scotland, Switzerland, Mexico and . . . Raleigh?


Yep, the pink peppercorn flavor at Raleigh's new Videri Chocolate Station is No. 9. (I was expecting the stellar Escazu, but apparently it's not new enough). If you're over in Raleigh, get a taste of Videri at 327 W. Davie St., across from the restaurant The Pit. And go by Escazu, too, on 936 N. Blount St.
