Abbott's Also Candy Shop when we visited with them back at the end of May. To kick off our 2012 Winter Holiday features (booked through all of November) we decided to go back to the shops we found in Indianapolis and do their second feature now. Today we're going to look at nine dark chocolate candies that were in this box. Note that this post was not written live this morning but over the course many days as I tried to practice the Moderation I preach to you all, Sisters and Brothers, yet when the candies were still fresh enough to be high quality. When something tastes so good and gives you that little cocoa buzz you may want to keep eating but you must prevail... OK, I tried, I really did and it took several days to sample and write just not the nine days it should ideally have. Since I don't know what each of these is until I eat it and share it, I'll label these by number. Ready to explore this box with me?
The darker chocolate candies do have more of a cocoa kick to them than their milk chocolate counterparts did. Some of these were very good but unfortunately the creams all seemed to fail either in delivering the extra flavor, their intensity of sweetness, or the inability of the chocolate to be the primary flavor. To find your own dark chocolate candies from Abbott's Also Candy Shop you can check out their website or if you are in Indianapolis either their NW Indy location or the shop in Greenwood. If you do that, let them know you read about them here on The Chocolate Cult please, Sisters and Brothers. For the Winter Holidays they'll have special themed boxes and containers you can choose from so help support your local and regional businesses if you live up in Indy and check them out.
