Chocolate Covered Fresh Raspberry Time! Thu, 07/13/06 8:04 PM (permalink)
Each year during July Bissinger's makes one of the most extraordinary confections we've ever tasted - chocolate covered fresh raspberries. We just received our annual box and dove right into them! Dark chocolate surrounds a fresh raspberry floating in syrup. They're not inexpensive ($35/pound plus shipping) but you won't regret it.

      Yes, blackberries come next month, and they are even better than the raspberries! (in the opinion of one of us)

        My chocolate covered raspberries from Bissinger's showed up today. I have only had a few, but they are every bit as good as I anticipated. I also got two boxes of the cinnamon bark enjoyed from my previous visit in January. If I get a chance, I will take some photos and post them sometime over the weekend.

          I know these are late, but here are some photos from the candy I received from Bissinger's last week.

          For only being four boxes of candy, they sure did come in big boxes!

          I also received two boxes of the cinnamon bark. The box of milk chocolate (which I preferred) is long gone, but there is still a few pieces of the dark chocolate left. I really enjoyed all of the candy and I can't wait for the blackberries to be available later in the year.

            Woo hoo!  My boxes of chocolate covered raspberries just showed up.  Also, two boxes of the cinnamon bark and a bag of chocolate covered cranberries.

            I had actually forgotten about ordering any this year, but Bissinger's called me a few days ago to see if I wanted to place an order.
