Back in April, I wrote a rave review about Hedonist Artisan Chocolates in Rochester. If I did my job right, it made you want to try them out. Well, here’s something that may help – until the end of the month, the coupon code FRSAU09 will getcha free shipping on online orders over $30.
Their stuff is on the pricey side, yes, but I think it’s pretty worth it. I’ve been back a couple of times (the last truffle I tried was a dark chocolate shell with flavorless pop rocks – simple yet amazing) and always have to restrain myself from buying everything in the shop. They rotate their flavors, which often sound novel and interesting, so I want to try them all.
In case you’re wondering why I’ve been back but haven’t posted new reviews – now that I know how tasty the truffles are, I’m no longer able to resist temptation long enough to get them home and photographed. Instead, I usually demolish/savor the truffles on site in the shop. Oops.
Finally, I want to make sure y’all know that Hedonist isn’t paying me in money or chocolate for my endorsement (though they do have free tastings events; sadly, I’ll be out of town visiting my boyfriend and shall have to miss the next chocolate premiere/free tasting. I don’t think my boyfriend appreciated how long it took me to decide that yes, I would rather see him than go to a free chocolate premier party). I just think they’re a great local small business and deserve what little publicity boost I can give them.
