Chocolates with Rum inside? Sat, 06/26/04 4:06 PM (permalink)
Years ago in Chicago we were able to buy these small (marble sized) dark chocolate balls that had rum inside of them. Wieboldts used to sell them there. They were quite expensive from what I can remember and probably imported.

Anyone know if they are still around anymore? Where? Maybe a WEB site where we can order some?

Thanks!!

Don

    I know you can order liquor filled chocolates from the Ethel M Chocolate Factory in Henderson (Las Vegas), NV, because I have toured their factory.
    Their online mixtures of creme liquor flavors are at: http://www.ethelm.com/cgi-bin/sgsh0104.exe?UID=2004062620204341&GEN8=&SKW=EM_Liqueur&FNM=03&PAGLEN=5 and you can custom order your own assortment (or single flavor) at: 1-800-438-4356.
    (By the way, Ethyl M is a division of Mars candy, since Ethyl was the name of Forrest Mars Sr.'s mother.)
    Note: Anyone other than oldfrt who wants to order the liquor flavors, make sure your state is on the list at the bottom of the page where they can legally ship liquor candy!

      Rumballs are alive and well. I still get my fix at Kuhn's International Deli on Waukegan Road in Deerfield.

        Thx. "6Star" we checked on the WEB site and they had a lot of "creamed" fillings which are good but we were looking for the straight RUM liquor. Not creamed.

        We will keep checking and thanks for the input!

          Don,

          From one Chicago boy to another: Kuhn's International Deli rumballs are the real deal, just like and as good as, if not better the old Wieboldt's.

              Hey Oldfart, to satisfy your Chocolate Rum craving, check out a "Ritter" bar from Germany. They make a killer chocolate with real rum and raisins. It even says on the label that it's real rum! You can find Ritter bars at most gourmet grocery stores! Has anyone else tried a Ritter bar?
