Chocolates by Mueller
My sister, who also lived in Pennsylvania for a short period, is a fan of Mueller's. She happens to be a truly fabulous gift-giver and last Christmas, she gave me a box of chocolate creams. On my last trip to Philly, I wanted more! I took a number but since it was incredibly crowded, couldn't really move from my spot in front of the cases. Their inventory is truly vast. When it was my turn, I ordered 1/2 pound of dark chocolate creams, which resembled what my sister had given to me, plus 1/4 pound of dark chocolate vanilla butter creams. Eating my way through the city, I didn't happen to sample any on my trip. Both of my choices were decadent and delicious, just not my favorite chocolates ever. I would choose a dark chocolate Lindor ball over them. I think the consistency of the center was just a bit too liquidy for my taste. I wished it was just a bit more firm. Plus, you eat with your eyes first and these were simply not polished and pretty. Maybe I just need to order something else... Like I said, it was so busy that I couldn't see much of their remarkable selection. I certainly do not regret the purchase however. I enjoy patronizing small businesses. I savored all of the dark chocolate creams over the following week, one or two for dessert after a lunch or dinner. It was a small treat to look forward to. I did sample the vanilla variety and enjoyed them, but wanting to lose some weight before my birthday, I actually gave the majority of them to my co-workers who adore chocolate as well.
Dark Chocolate Creams
I do look forward to returning and trying out other things, the prettier round truffles included, especially if I have a run of the entire glass case!
