83 Years of Chocolate Expertise
The shop was fairly small, but I could see a wide range of chocolates as well as the kitchen in the back where they make them. A couple of tables and -- hey, another person there buying their goods. You may think that a tiny Iowa store might be in need of business, but let me tell you, every place we found was busy, so plan to wait in line or order for delivery.
So this is a small sample of the wide variety I saw in the tiny store called Drew's Chocolates in Dexter, Iowa. The chocolate is real and pure, it melts on the fingertips, and they clearly know how to deal with all three basic varieties of our Sacred Substance. You can email Drew's at firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at 1-800-243-7397. They do not currently have a website because for 83 years they've been doing fine by word of mouth and generations of chocolate lovers. I think that if you want to say you truly know chocolate you need to try them, as well as all the other chocolatiers we reveal to you every Saturday Sacrament and for Special Sacramental Reviews. The folks at Drew's have a chance to become one of your family traditions, so give them a try, especially if you aren't far from Des Moines.
Sisters and Brothers, may you, too, take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
