After meeting my husband may years ago, we would go back to the Omaha, Nebraska area to visit family and friends. As everyone already knows I love candy. Every trip we would make I would have to get my Bakers Candies fix. I had never had a Meltaway like this before (and still haven't had). They have such an incredible selection to please any palete. They even have introduced two more meltaway flavors...Dark Chocolate Cherry and Coconut. All these items are avaiable for purchase on line through Bakers Candies.

Baker's Candies Meltaway is their signature piece and it designates a chocolate of such quality that it is best enjoyed by simply letting it "melt-a-way" in your mouth.

While enjoying these chocolate confections notice the smoothness of the crumb....the subtle flavor notes in addition to the full-bodied primary flavor.....and of course the depth and richness of the overall chocolate impression. Baker's meltaways combine two distinct layers of chocolate: An outer layer of ultra smooth, creamy, low viscosity chocolate covering a high viscosity, richly flavored center.

There are very few American chocolate manufacturers still committed to the manufacturing and processes required to complete this solid chocolate confection- Baker's are proud to be one of them! And best of all there are made in NEBRASKA!!!

**GO BIG RED!!**

Bakers was nice enough to send me some of there tasty treats to sample and fullfill my sweet tooth (and my family). I had never tried the chocolate covered carmels before...they are amazingly creamy and rich with the perfect amount of chocolate coating. All I can say is "I am in Heaven!" with the Dark Chocolate Meltaways...it is like eating a chococlate covered cherry with out the mess and it lasts a lot longer. The coconut Meltaways make me think of Summer and it can't arrive soon enough :) The Caramel Pecan Clusters - puts any turtle treat to shame. They are perfect!!!

I love having the chance to promote local companies and small companies. I think it is important to buy from small business, USA businesses --- we all can help our ecomony!
