One of the perks of this new radio job at 650 AM WSM is food. Yep. It’s true. Now I don’t know if disc jockeys are widely known for their love of food or how or why this happens, but guests bring food! I’m completely good with that given my food status and love of 🙂 So this gig is a win win in that department alone!
A young artist from Michigan brought these treats to the studio recently. Her name is Allie Louise and she is a talented singer who has great taste in chocolate! I took one bite and immediately thought “this is the best I’ve ever tasted!” and I mean it. Sanders Chocolate began way back in 1857 in Detroit, so they’ve been making candy and confectionery treats for a long, long time. Here’s a interesting read about the creator Fred Sanders and the explanation for their famous Bumpy Cake-http://www.sanderscandy.com/Articles.asp?ID=353 Now about these caramels, I don’t know if its their 1920’s caramel recipe, the quality of the dark chocolate or the perfect salty flavor of the sea salt that make these things so delectable, but whatever it is, I love ’em!
You know, my OPN mission is to be a resource, so if you’re looking for a gift for Dad for Father’s Day or a graduate or for yourself, let me give two big thumbs up for these!! In my opinion, if you’re going to eat chocolate, it needs to be really good chocolate. And when chocolate tastes good, you only need a bite or two to satisfy.
So where to find it? There are 8 Sanders Chocolate & Ice Cream Shoppes in Southeastern Michigan and 2 on Mackinac Island…now that is the one I want to visit! Or you find their chocolate here and some sizes right now are buy one get one 1/2 off– http://www.sanderscandy.com/Dark-Chocolate-Sea-Salt-Caramels-p/25270-p.htm. I also found the milk chocolate variety on the shelf at Cracker Barrel and I read that some varieties are in grocery stores, too.
Thank you, Allie for introducing me to these little chunks of chocolate/caramel heaven…they really are as the company says- “Chocolates worth sharing.”
