Lin McKay and Mike Shafer are creating a buzz inside the 7th Street Public Market with the opening of Bar Chocolate, a sweets stand that fuses art and confections. These chocolatiers create handmade happiness using high-quality chocolate and local ingredients. A must-try: the bee pollen praline, a dark chocolate-covered bite that has both complexity and crunch. In it, floral Tanzanian dark chocolate encases a layered combination of Mecklenburg County bee pollen, roasted hazelnuts, hard caramel, and Pailleté Feuilletine (delicate dehydrated bits of crepe) for a decadent spin on a French classic. 224 E. 7th St., 704-953-0987
