Schwartz

Last night, our friend Semisweet1, his parents and family business was featured on the Food Network's Unwrapped program on Chocolate Creations.

Semisweet's grandfather founded Schwartz Candies, where one can purchase "Chocolate Covered Marshmallows that are Out of this World!"


I have personally tasted them, and can tell you that they do live up to their name! The Valentine brochure arrived the other day, and I've been drooling over it. If I lived near them, I would be visiting every day to get one.

It was a fun program to watch, and since I recorded it, I watched the Schwartz segment twice.

Unwrapped also covered other chocolatiers, one of which was Dove Chocolates. I learned that Dove is made in Elizabethtown, PA, which is between us and Lancaster. Didn't know that they were so close!! There is another chocolate company in that general area. Wilbur Chocolates is in Lititz. And of course, there is always Hershey's, which is nearby.

Mmmmm I am a Turtle patties type of girl! However a chocolate covered graham cracker could be quite nice as well.

I would give quite a bit to taste these chocolate covered marshmellows. They are nowhere to be found here though :( They look so delicious.

I watched it too. It was so surreal hearing Semi speak, I recognized his voice right away from his audio posts on Doug's sites. Man, did those treats look delicious. I'm gonna get me some!

Did you see the segment on the Sam Adams chocolate beer? Made me think of Actonbell.

No shortage of chocolate in your neck of the woods. I could get seriously addicted.

Get out!!! PA must be the Chocolate Capital of the World! And how cooool to have a friend on TV! I have one that's going to be hosting a special on the History channel soon, or so I'm told. Anyway, I have distant relatives who live in Lititz. I never knew there was a chocolate factory there!

I didn't know about Dove, either. Ekim and I toured Wilbur-Wilbur Buds came before Kisses, ya know:) Yes, the marshmellows are a dream. I'm thinking of Swartz for Easter.

I wish I could have seen it and seen Semi too! But alas, I am in Spain and so... woe is me!

Oh yeah... Valentine's Day is coming. I hate Valentine's Day. I might have to rant about it this year.

Aral, I'm with you. In January and February I avoid starting relationships to dodge that bullet. Then I have 10 months free until I have to start avoiding relationships again.

*Drool* I want to borrow the recording of that show. Those Schwartz Candies are absolutely wonderful.

Valentine's Day is full of pitfalls for sure.

Doug, Valentines day...14th of february, right? Not a big deal here. You don´t have to give anything, but I have seen in movies taht American women get flowers and chocolates on this day. So, if I´d live in teh States...I´d get Schwartz' marshmallows covered in chocolate? Some serious thought has to go into that thought!
