Easter Basket Finds
Vosges Chocolate Bacon and Eggs. Five pieces for $24.99. The luxury brand Vosges features uncured bacon with dried juniper berries and celery juice.
Easter candy is not just for kids. Our theory is that a little bit of quality is far better than a wheel barrel full of, well ... cheap ingredients. So when you're nesting and filling that Easter Basket for a loved one this year think less is more. Any of these choices will assure you that you have the most ususual finds.
Nirvana Chocolates natural pastel colored praline-filled chocolate Easter Eggs. One dozen for $15.99. A whole new level of Easter Eggs.
These Nirvana eggs were the most beautiful we've seen.
Well-known British candies like Cadbury's Chocolate Flake always bring back memories of trips or popular chocolate treats from home.
For those who must have their Belgian chocolate fix there is always Neuhaus.
Petit-Fours are always a popular traditional choice.
Vosges Chocolate Chip and Bacon Pancake Mix. $14.99. Hey, you're going to have the bacon anyway, right?
Peanut Brittle and Bacon. $6.99
All of the candies pictured were from selections at Cardullo's Gourmet Shoppe in Harvard Square, which next month will be celebrating sixty years of bringing gourmet foods, candies, coffees, teas and fine wine to Greater Boston. As always, tell them The Boston Foodie sent you.
