The John Macris family owns and operates Philadelphia Candies, located in western PA, and have been manufacturing chocolates in the Shenango Valley for 92 years. Throughout the year, Philadelphia Candies specialties include bulk and boxed luxury chocolates and at Easter, they offer a wide variety of high quality eggs filled with their own recipes.
Chocolates have long been associated with the feeling of affection. Blame it on the fact that many people love the treat and many would be happy at the thought of getting boxed chocolates especially from someone who cares for them. Of course candy of any type and chocolates are always an appropriate gift or as a “thank you” gift.
Spring and summer are traditionally wedding season, and many guests will be traveling long distances out-of-state to attend family festivities. While many of us like wines, chips, cheese and other gourmet items, most of us would likely favor chocolates above everything else. Chocolate gifts won’t fail because it doesn’t matter how young or old the recipient of the chocolate items would be. Everybody loves chocolates. If you’re a bride-to-be, or Mother-of-the-Bride planning the destination wedding event, welcome the out of town guests by leaving a box of Philadelphia Candies in your guest’s rooms at the hotel or Bed and Breakfast upon their arrival!
Luxury Fine Chocolate
Philadelphia Candies recently sent me a sampling of their delicious lines of chocolate to review which included Philadelphia’s most popular boxed chocolates, the Meltaway Assortment; Pecanettes and Dark Chocolate Assortment.
All of the centers, such as creams, nougats, truffles, marshmallow, etc., are made from scratch using the highest quality ingredients available. The freshest and highest quality fruits, such as Whole Maraschino Cherries and California Grown Dates are used. Only the choicest Mammoth Pecan Halves, Fresh-Roasted Cashews, California Whole Almonds, Large Filberts, Whole Brazils, Light Walnut Halves, and Jumbo Peanuts are used in all of the Philadelphia Candies nut creations.
I’ve tasted chocolates from premier confectioners in California and Vermont, and have given as gifts our best candy confections made locally from candy companies here in Connecticut. However, I never had tried Philadelphia Candies before.
Easy to order candy online, once you try Philadelphia Candies, you’ll be delighted!
