The name may not be overly appealing, but “mudballs” is fitting for the reigning chocolate at this sweet little shop. Bite into it, and it does indeed looks a little dirty. But it’s a light, creamy and deliciously dark center made from pulverized Oreos and cream cheese and covered in chocolate.
Other tempting favorites in the many candy cases include buttery, nutty wedges of chocolate-covered toffee and Old Market Candy’s chewy German chocolate logs made with vanilla fudge, crushed pecans and coconut folded with caramel. Chocolate-shop mainstays include nut clusters, peanut butter fluff cups, cashew caramel patties and a variety of truffles, caramels and filled chocolates. They also sell an impressive sugar-free selection of chocolates.
For kids (or grandparents), look for nostalgic candies such as Chick-o-stick and Necco wafers or novelty sweets such as gummi rats and cockroaches that seem especially fitting at Halloween.
We’ll happily stick with mudballs and toffee.
