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 Artisan Chocolates – Corned Beef and Cabbage Truffle

Hedonist Artisan Chocolates whipped up a special batch of Corned Beef and Cabbage truffles that they gave out as a free St. Patrick’s Day treat. My friend and former Rochester roommate Meredith got one to try and review. ~Rosa I wasn’t planning to do anything (or really leave the house at all) for St Patrick’s […]

Hedonist Artisan Chocolates – Classic Truffle Collection

One of my favorite things about Hedonist Artisan Chocolates is that they shake things up a lot and trot out different truffle flavors every season or so. I’ve been so busy reviewing all of their different truffle collections that I’m only now getting to reviewing their classic truffle collection. I no longer live in Rochester, […]

Hedonist Cinnamon Chipotle Drinking Chocolate + Coupon Code

Last year, Hedonist Artisan Chocolates sent me free samples of their bittersweet drinking chocolate, but it never really got cold enough in North Carolina for me to bust it out. Recently, I got a free sample of their cinnamon chipotle drinking chocolate, which I made to get me through Thanksgiving prep. Hedonist described their Cinnamon Chipotle drinking […]

Hedonist Spring Collection

I went back to Rochester over spring “break” to work on some brain data I left there. Grad students don’t get vacation! Fortunately, my visit was timed so that I was able to pick up a free sample of Hedonist Artisan Chocolates’s new Spring Collection (full description and “artist’s notes” here). While in the shop, I […]

Hedonist Salted Caramels

These salted caramels from Hedonist Artisan Chocolates were free samples that I got in the same package as the candy cane bark (Wednesday’s review). I’m a total sucker for salted caramels, especially when they’re covered in chocolate. The label simply described them as “buttery caramel and sea salt enrobed in rich chocolate.” The box of 10 had […]

Hedonist Candy Cane Bark

When I left Rochester, NY, I was sad to leave behind a great local chocolatier in Hedonist Artisan Chocolates. 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

Usually I review Easter candies after the holiday is over – love those steep next day sales! 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 […]
