Looking for some amazing chocolate made right here in Connecticut?  You don’t have to look far.  When that chocolate craving hits try one of these and you’ll understand why some say “Chocolate is Heaven”.

The Munson family has been making chocolates in Connecticut since 1946.  If you are a chocolate lover then stepping into a Munson’s store is a must, though we warn you it might be a bit overwhleming.  Everything is wonderful but some of the standouts include their fudge, cordial cherries, pecan caramels and dark chocolate.  If you are looking for a high cocoa content candy then try their 72% bitter sweet chocolate.  Looking for a gift, pick up a box of assorted chocolates or other fun chocolate treats always wrapped for the season.  If you can’t make it to a store you can order online.

A true treasure awaits the chocolate lover in South Norwalk.  Come in for more than just chocolate (they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner) but definately try the chocolate while you are there.  Enjoy a treat while you watch the chocolates being crafted.  It’s a true behind the scenes look at the process of making chocolates.  You’ll have a difficult time deciding so we suggest the coffee with chocolate and lavender foam, mexican hot chocolate and the truffles.
Hours are:  Wednesday 11am – 9pm; Thursday 11am – 10pm; Friday & Saturday 11am – midnight;  Sunday 10:30am – 5pm.
