It is exactly what I expected. Although I wasn't able to actually see them make chocolate on this trip, I was able to buy some of my favorite candies made by this old American candy manufacturer.
If you live in the US, you know Russell Stover, Pangburn's and Whitman's. You probably didn't know they were one company. The Whitman's Sampler has been a staple in most homes for almost 100 years. Whitman's was founded in Philadelphia in 1842. Russell Stover's from Denver started in 1923. Pangburn's Millionaires were first created in Ft. Worth Texas in 1914. This is chocolate history!!
All of us grew up eating chocolate covered marshmallow or caramel Santa's and Easter Bunnies. If you haven't tried the "Mint Dream", you are missing another terrific fluffy concoction.
For someone like me who is always encouraging people to "eat more chocolate", this is a great place to start!
