  1. We just got home after spending 6 weeks in Harpswell. We brought visitors and tried a few of the chocolates, all of which were simply divine. I love chocolate covered caramels, but my husband doesn’t, so no risk that he’ll eat mine.:) I bought him 2 raspberry truffles (there decadently large)
    Last night, I just couldn’t resist, after all, I was just going to taste it, and took a teeny, tiny bite. Really!
    Oh my gosh, that was so good, maybe just a little bit more, he won’t mind (too much).
    Uh Oh, I’m really in trouble now, I just ate the whole darn thing. I just couldn’t stop, honest.
    It. Was. That. Good.
    So, when I found out that you have an online presence AND, I can order some more I I knew I was saved. Thank you, thank you.
    P.S. Your shop is really cute and I found it a one stop shop for bringing back gifts to all my neighbors who held down the fort, aka, gardens. while we were away.
    P.P.S. The chocolate covered coconut and caramel, that you can get in dark or milk chocolate were just amazing!!
