    Where's Stowaway Sweets on the list? They've been around forever, supposedly Mrs. FDR's favorite chocolates. Definitely our family's for 4 generations!

    Van Otis in Lawrence is fabulous - rich, creamy truffles that melt in your mouth. Even the sugar free truffles are great!

    I agree with the reviewer's comments about Harbor Sweets and L.A. Burdick. But one of the best is Knipschildt in Norwalk Connecticut. You can order on line. Try them.

    If you want to go to the midwest, both DeBrand in Fort Wayne Indiana and Ghyslain in Union City Indiana are great tasting and beautiful!

    Unfortunately there are no great shops in Kentucky where I live. So I travel to Indiana and order on line.

    Cacao Chocolates of Kittery, Maine deserves inclusion in your list. I would be shocked if it was not considered.

    Prides Crossing Confections is by far the best in my opinion. I suggest any chocolate lover to check this location out, which is kind of magical. It is actually a train stop depot in exclusive, but out of the way, Prides Crossing (on the Rockport MBTA line). I have compared the chocolates from PCC to some of the others on the list here, and they simply do not compare the quality of PCC.

    Have to agree with the Dean'sSweets writer. They always have samples available. And all their truffles are nut-free. and they ship, too, for all you folks not from Portland.

    Try the best: Fafa Truffles (found at Spruce Pond Creamery, in Franklin), then you'll know the true flavor of chocolate.While you're there, have lunch (organic pizza cooked in woodoven) and ice cream too!

    This chocolate "expert" is a "big fan" of milk chocolate? To true chocolate lovers, milk chocolate can barely be considered chocolate anymore. Tastes are changing to less additives and sugars to a more natural chocolate flavor - which seemed missed in this article. And true, innovative, chocolatiers are following this path. That is why I think this was flawed, at best.

    I will say that Garrison's in RI is my overall favorite in the area.

    It seems like all the list mentions are the trendy choclatiers with the trendy addresses and the high prices to go along with. I would have preferred to see a few mentions of more accessable, down to earth chocolatiers such as Sanborn's Candies. Santa Claus would use their treats to trim our Christmas Tree every year and the Easter Bunny always seemed to hop by there on the way to my house. Their chocolate is just as good if not in my opinion better than a lot of the ones listed. One of my coworkers brought me a box as a gift one recent year and I was just in heaven enjoying it.

    The Chocolate Bar of Plymouth on Court Street in Plymouth, MA. Really great truffles in interesting flavors. They had delicious egg nog truffles at Christmas. Delicious fudge, too in cool flavors, i.e. pumpkin or cookie dough. I think they're fairly new but definitely some of the best chocolate I've ever had. Everything is packaged beautifully too but their stuff isn't overpriced.

    I have to agree with tjowren that Chatham Candy Manor should be on the list. I didn't write about them because I think of their Fantasy Fudge frist (and not technically what the article was about), but I adore their chocolate covered apricots - well chocolate covered most anything. They have a number of unique items including truffles, creams, and the chocolate pizza that are so good. I guess the other reason I didn't think to list them is because the place is already crowded enough with people in line ahead of me! :-)

    Two More Choc Brands That Will Make Your Sweety's Heart Melt

    I consider myself to be a serious chocolate connoisseur...or more like a chocky-junkie. Gotta get my fix whenever and wherever I can. I've tasted many-a-brand of organic and fair trade varieties in my day and I've got to give huge kudos to a few labels that aren't yet on your list above but definitely deserve to be.


    Theo Chocolate. Seattle-based. Phenomenal & diverse flavor collection. Deep, rich and satisfying.
     

    Seth Ellis. You can taste the care that they pour into their sweets, everything is crafted in small batches and well worth every lip-smacking bite.

    They're both mentioned in this article (courtesy of Greenwala) http://www.greenwala.com/community/blogs/featured/4393-Green-Up-Your-Val... and I couldn't agree more!

      The Chocolate Truffle in Reading, Lynnfield and Winchester has by far the best English Toffee on this side of the pond!  Their signature truffles (hand dipped), and amazing peanut butter cups are worth the trip.   Mangia!!
