Seattle is one of the best places in the country to get a chocolate fix, according to a ranking of the 190 biggest U.S. cities for their makers and sellers of high-quality chocolate, including chocolatiers, dessert shops, and patisseries.

Seattle is lauded for its chocolate shops and bakeries, coffee shops, and dessert shops. The other top-10 cities, in order, are New York City, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Hershey, Penn.. Los Angeles, Chicago, Orlando, Fla., San Diego, Calif., and Dallas, Texas.

Lawn Love, which did the survey to mark International Chocolate Day on Sept. 13, put New York City at the top of the sweet stack because it has more than 100 chocolate shops and the most chocolate manufacturers in the country. San Francisco (number 2) is home to industry icon Ghirardelli and a bevy of smaller artisans and manufacturers.
Portland, Ore. ranked 14th.
