Chocolate Heaven

I spent the day doing errands and ended my day with a trip to a special store. It is Cerreta Candy Company in Glendale, Az. I haven't been there in ages but I needed to bulk up my chocolate stash for next week.

I love chocolate and this is by far the best stuff I have had since I was a kid. The only thing that even comes close to it is some mint candy that was sold in Hallmark stores. I don't remember the name but it was yummy. The other one is fudge made in Solvang, CA. My family is Danish and we would go there every year for
Danish days.

I needed to get a stash made up because I know that I am going to have an ugly time next week and needed something to smoooooooooth out the edges. Nothing does that better than some oh so yummy chocolate.

When you walk in the door you are hit with the wonderful smell of chocolate. Think of a mini-version of Willy Wonka's factory. They have tons of different kinds of candy, popcorn, cactus candy, and on, and on. They also have tours to show how they make their candy. The kids love the tours. Glendale also hosts a Chocolate Lovers festival. I seem to miss it every year but hope to attend this year.

I stroll through the bins looking at all of the choices. So hard to just pick some instead of everything. I also notice new stuff that they carry from local merchants like chocolate covered jalapeno peppers. Ah, not my thing.

So I restrained myself and only got 1 bag full of goodies. See the pic. The best ones are the green ones. Smooth, melt in your mouth, minty goodness. Of course I had to test a few of them out on the way home.

So if you are ever in the Glendale, Az area go check it out. Forget about that diet, it is soooooo worth it! 


  1. Yumm! What else is there to say!

  2. to me the higher percentage cocoa the better the chocolate...

  3. LOL I don't care about the percentage as long as it tastes good.
