Mommy in PA was very excited when she found out she was going to be able to try a sampling of Asher's Chocolates. See Asher's Chocolates has been around since 1892 when Chester A. Asher opened a small candy shop in Philadelphia. They are currently located in Souderton, PA and Lewistown, PA and are run by the fourth generation of Asher's. I love companies with a deep family history (It's just neater that they are in my state too).
The chocolates I received to sample were the Assorted Mini Seashells. This worked out perfectly because my family and I were able to try the milk chocolate, dark chocolate, peanut butter, and white chocolate. I could tell right away that these were a high quality chocolate, they have a stronger taste that we really liked. I was very impressed with their dark chocolate, my seven year old even liked it. The Peanut Butter wasn't bad but it really wasn't what I expected. The milk chocolate tasted totally different from any milk chocolate I've had, very tasty. The white chocolate was my favorite, a little strong, but totally delicious.
Asher's doesn't just make solid chocolates either. They have a wide variety of different foods dipped in chocolates. I especially like the sound of the Milk Chocolate Smothered Graham Crackers....Yum! The best part is that even with the high quality of their chocolate they are still very reasonably priced. I could see myself ordering their gift baskets for holiday gifts.
The thing I liked best about their site was how easy it was to find what I was looking for, they even have a thing along the side that lists categories by ingredient so if you are looking for something in particular it is very easy to find. The only thing I didn't like was how hard it was to decide what to try....so many yummy chocolates to choose from!
