Suzi's Sweet Shoppe Review and Giveaway

There's nothing in this world that I love more than chocolate. I am not too much of a plain chocolate lover, oh no. My chocolate has to be busy. Even when I make brownies I throw in M&M's, and pretzel bits, etc. I love chocolate that is bold and has lots of personality. Suzi's Sweet Shoppe shares my philosophy on chocolate and for that she is a smart woman.



Suzi's Sweet Shoppe knows that creating premium chocolate is an art that requires great skill, passion and dedication. Nobody knows that better than the owners of Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe, Susan and Stan Hordych. Since opening their doors in 1998, they’ve developed and refined their unique hand-dipped chocolates and candy with absolute devotion. It’s evident in every tongue-tingling sweet they produce.

Much care and attention goes into each and every confection. Staying true to time-honored recipes and old-world craftsmanship, they use only the highest quality and freshest ingredients in all their sweets. Preparation is carefully monitored, from mixing and cooking the ingredients, to measuring and cutting the pieces.

The sweet treats at Suzi's are mouth-wateringly delicious. When you walk into the shop, you're basically walking into chocolate heaven. Whether you desire fudge, chocolate covered pretzels, truffles, gift sets, sugar free specialities and more, they have you covered. Any kind of chocolate your sugar laden heart desires, Suzi's carries.

I received a package from Suzi and it was filled with chocolate-y goodness. As I took each item out of the package my sweet tooth emerged more and more. I received a chocolate treat in the shape of an old fashioned top hat. The treat was made out of milk chocolate and had oreo cookie and marshmallow inside. I received a very large S'Mores, and a huge box of chocolate covered pretzels. Each pretzel was different and contained sprinkles, M&M's, and more! Lastly I received a large chocolate covered Twinkie with white chocolate drizzle. Oh My! Suzi really knew the key to my heart and she's turned that key quite well! :) I'm sorry that I don't have a picture of the S'Mores. I forgot to take a picture of it before I had a few bites.





So far I've only tried a few bites of the S'mores and the pretzels. The S'mores was gigantic! It was a huge chocolate covered marshmallow packin' graham cracker extravaganza. I had never seen anything like it before. It was so big that I could barely take a bite, I had to break off a piece! The only thing that I regret not doing is heating it up in the microwave, like a true S'more. I had it unheated and it was still delicious though. Upon first bite you are hit with a wave of flavors all at once. It is so delightful. You taste the sweet milk chocolate covering the crunchy and flakey graham cracker walls. Then, following that, you taste the fluffy, sweet marshmallow. Your taste buds are in chocolate nirvana and there's no stopping them! A S'mores is the perfect treat for any age. There's just something so comforting and fabulous about the combination of marshmallow, graham crackers, and chocolate. It's a magical trifecta of deliciousness.

I had a chocolate covered M&M pretzel next. Each pretzel is so pretty I had a hard time eating it! The pretzel is a very decent size. You're not eating some dinky little pretzel, mind you. This pretzel is large and in charge and packs some serious flavor. It's so visually pleasing too with the perfect chocolate color and the multi-colored M&M's. Upon first bite, you taste the milk chocolate and the crunchy, salty combination of the pretzel all at once. It's the perfect combination and the flavors swirl together and your senses are in chocolate pretzel bliss! The M&M's are crunchy and add an even sweeter twist to an already perfect treat. You can't get any better than this. It's the perfect afternoon treat too. Just pair it with a glass of milk and let the chocolate melt away all of your troubles.

I haven't tried the rest of Suzi's sweets yet, but I can guarantee you that they are absolutely fabulous. I highly recommend that you try some of Suzi's sweets in the near future. :)
