Once a year, the shops and sidewalks of Long Beach’s Belmont Shore are stacked with even more sweet treats than usual.
So welcome again to the Belmont Shore Chocolate Festival, home of chocolates and cakes and contests and the kind of endlessly varied confections even hardened chocoholics barely dare dream about. (Last year's white-chocolate-and-truffles “spaghetti and meatballs”? Unbelievable!) This year, besides the usual dessert competition and pie-eating contest, there’s also a chance to win a variety of cakes and coupons for local businesses. We’d make that Homer Simpson noise now, but you’re probably hearing it in your head already.
