Pragmatic Mom told me about a great site, Fancy Nancy’s Candy . Of course, I love the name and we are all about the chocolate here, too. I checked out the site and ate the head off of a chocolate bunny, I was so inspired. Then about a week later, I was getting ready to go out (mid-week, mind you, a school night) to a fundraiser for Families First (I will let you know about that wonderful event here) and was half-way committed to an outfit (black skirt, festive blouse) when Pragmatic Mom came by with samples from Fancy Nancy. Tons of gorgeous, sweet samples in ribbon-tied bags. Luckily this was post-Easter (so I have been raiding the children’s candy stash Sorry, kids, I mean eating a bit more candy than usual) and I was trying to actually fit into something to wear so the entire pretty, pretty bag of chocolate deliciousness was not consumed in one sitting by, well, just me. There was one small price to pay; we had to take photos of the chocolates and taste some and review them. Hardship, I know.
There were dark and milk chocolate covered everything: pretzels, nut clusters, oreos and graham crackers (which were perfection) – side note – these are a particular favorite of mine and I actually make note of the chocolate to graham cracker ratio – and, yes, it can be wrong – and these were aces. There were dark chocolate purses – so sweet for a party favor and almost too pretty to eat but not quite – and a darling (in the most masculine way) milk chocolate baseball glove cradling a white chocolate baseball. All delicious and we are serious about our chocolate. The quality of chocolate is wonderful and the nut clusters were really good, too. I held off trying it all (although off-spring did devour some as well) so Pragmatic Mom and family coud have some, too.
