Amano Chocolates

We are so disappointed that we will not be able to attend the International Chocolate Salon this year in San Francisco like we have the past couple of years, but unfortunately, this year it falls on a Sunday so we won't be attending :-( We discovered last year about Amano Artisan Chocolates at the Chocolate Salon and they are actually based in Orem, Utah. We decided to visit their factory store and were not disappointed. They offered several of their chocolate bars as well as their painted truffles. But, the real winner was their toffee. I am not usually a huge fan of toffee, but my mind has been changed after having some of their deliciousness. It was so light, not overly brittle and had the perfect texture, as well as a mild dark chocolate that enhanced the flavor. We bought one bag and I wish we could have bought another one. But, we are happy that we did buy a box of their truffles- we haven't finished them yet, but so far I have mainly enjoyed the key lime one. Check them out if you are in the area- if you are a chocolate fan, it is definitely one that cannot be missed.
