Food Chocolate Cake Strawberry Dessert Matanzas On The Bay

Treat Your Sweetheart (and Your Sweet Tooth)

We’re not saying Valentine’s Day is an excuse to gorge on chocolate. We’re saying that every day is a good day to dive into high-quality confections that have been made with love. Discover four of the best places to sweeten your stay around Fort Myers.

Norman Love Chocolate & Dessert Salon
Using top-tier ingredients and a delicate touch, Norman Love is renowned for its jewel-like chocolates and has a long legacy in Southwest Florida, first opening its Fort Myers flagship in 2001 and opening several more outposts over the years. Pick your favorite from a collection of signature chocolates including gourmet Hot Dark Chocolate, decadent Dulce de Leche and a bright Key Lime Confection. Take it to the next level with a line of premium, single-origin dark chocolates sourced from cacao-growing regions around the globe. 

Gulf Coast Fudge
Enjoy a sense of nostalgia at this family-founded homemade fudge shop. Pick from three locations — at the Shell Factory & Nature Park in North Fort Myers, downtown Fort Myers and Cape Coral. Handmade just like the old days, rich, sweet fudge is slowly cooked in a copper kettle based on a recipe that dates back to the 19th century. Sink your teeth into slabs of classic chocolate fudge and other mouthwatering flavors like maple pecan and Reese’s peanut butter. Other sweet confections include Oreos and marshmallows enrobed in chocolate, Amish-style ice cream and wildly creative seasonal shakes. 

Noela Chocolates
Sourcing high-quality, fair-trade chocolate from around the world, Noela puts a modern spin on delicious treats. Stop by the Cape Coral factory and surprise your sweetheart with a box of colorful, whimsical candies such as dark chocolate ganache filled with strawberry puree, spicy chipotle cinnamon hearts and a soft caramel with a hint of honey encased in a chocolate shell. 

Le Macaron
Find a taste of France in downtown Fort Myers at this sweet gem of a shop. Colorful, light-as-air French macarons are a perfect way to show your affection. Select from classic flavors like Belgian chocolate and lemon cream, or enjoy local flair with key lime, strawberry and mango jam macarons. A scoop of gelato or a collection of chocolates will complete your indulgent day together.
