This sunny week we stopped by the Rose Hill Chocolate Company for a truffle and some samples of their famous fudge. I liked the Chocolate Ammeretto, my son opted for the Walnut Chocolate Fudge. Probably the most decadent was the black current truffle with white chocolate! Dan Straub, the owner, was behind the counter and we learned a lot about where the world's best cacao beans come from (Tierra del Fuego) and some chocolate making trivia. There were a lot of other temptations including gummy spiders and numerous Halloween goodies available. Yum! We thought next time we'll leave the kids at home and stop by the Leely's Day Spa & Wine Tasting next door to the Chocolate Factory to sip some local vintages.
