I really, really like See's Candies. I like that people who like creams, can have those, and people who don't can have something else.

But I am sure the airlines appreciates him spending all that money flying that far when they are right in his own back yard. The CEO and most of the employees are from Switzerland also. Throughout the year, the owners come here to make sure the product is not being compromised. The milk for the milk chocolate items comes from a local dairy on a daily basis and is about a fresh as you can get.

Our local chocolatier is Norman Love, whose chocolates are works of art, almost too pretty to eat, but very good as well.

Those are just for special occasions, being so expensive; I also like Trader Joe's light & dark chocolates and those meltingly wonderful Lindt little round truffle balls.

In baked goods, chocolate anythings.

See Chocolates are not available in this part of the country. At least I have never seen them. Only on TV.

I am a strong believer in giving my business to local establishments whenever possible. We have several in house chocoatetiers close by. Putnam Pantry comes to mind. If you get there too early in the day, you have to wait for them to come out of the kitchen. Pewter Pot is another one. Both within 15 minutes from where I live.

Good for you. Chocolates shouldn't earn too many air miles.

And the best part is that there are no chemicals to tie them over for long storage.
