Hedonist Ice Cream Shop

I have sung the praises of Hedonist Artisan Chocolates on this blog a multitude of times. I was recently in Rochester for a wedding, so of course I had to drop in for a visit. I got some Chocolate-Covered Salted Caramels, and I stopped by their new (to me) ice cream store. It was so…

Hedonist Salted Caramels FTW!

If y’all follow me on Twitter (plug plug plug), you already know that I’ve been bragging about Hedonist Chocolates lately.

Hedonist Candy Cane Bark

Fortunately, when you’re a candy blogger, candy can follow you around in the form of free samples! Hedonist sent me a bag of their holiday Candy Cane Bark, along with some holiday truffles (previously reviewed here), salted…

Hedonist Farm Egg Truffles

But today, I’m actually reviewing an Easter product before Easter, thanks to free samples from Hedonist Artisan Chocolates. These Farm Egg Truffles are made to look like (aka are not made from) farm eggs. They are mind-bogglingly gorgeous with…
