International Gourmet Chocolate & Sweets Boutique Entices Sarasotans

Dulcefina Chocolates & Sweets recently opened in the heart of Sarasota, South Florida. The confectionary gem is stocked with an assortment of over 500 delicious nuggets from all over the world.

Sarasota, FL, June 13, 2014 --( Dulcefina Chocolate & Sweets finally opens its doors to sweeten up the Tampa Bay Area. Bringing together the best flavors from nearly 50 countries, the boutique carries an assortment of over 500 sweets, and continues to work with importers to locate the world’s most premium sweets.

“We always dreamed of a gourmet candy store that carried the best sweets from around the world,” said Daniel Meidan, Dulcefina co-founder. “The tastiest and most unique candies really come from abroad – they are extremely hard to find in the United States.” Dulcefina is determined to change this. Harboring one of the largest selections of licorice in Florida, the store carries only the finest imports from England, Finland, Holland and Morocco. From simple bonbon delights, to handmade gourmet chocolate from Belgium, Italy, France, and Spain (to name a few), Dulcefina is equipped to indulge even the most selective foodie.

Located on 4221 S. Tamiami Trail, the 1,000 square foot store has already begun to captivate the locals by offering free in-store sampling – while getting mesmerized by the shop’s beauty. “There are chocolates hanging from the ceiling, and the cream white walls are lined up with hundreds of colors and flavors – It’s gorgeous!” stated Cheryl Lang, as she enjoyed her dark-chocolate covered lemon slices from Spain.

Dulcefina features a self-service area starting at $9.99 per pound, in addition to an upscale section showcasing the more exotic offerings – with slightly higher price tags. The confectionary gem offers a wide selection of categories, including: gluten free, sugar free, organic, kosher, all natural, and salted, all in various forms of candy, chocolate, nougat, caramel, dragee, licorice, malban, and others.
