Something for everybody
UPDATE March 2017: Sharona’s has closed.
Sharona’s Chocolate Shop, in a former See’s shop, strives to offer something for everyone in its cases packed with a large selection of quality chocolate candies, cake pops, everything chocolate-dipped, and truffles the size of half a hard-boiled egg. They also offer chocolate parties (on-premise or catered), chocolate fountain rentals and custom chocolates for special occasions.
Their best-seller is a salted caramel, which is chewy and creamy, with a good balance between sweet and salty. And if you like chili in your chocolates, try the cayenne truffle with a creamy ganache that’s hot, hot, hot.
With such a large selection, unless you come with something specific in mind, ask the staff for recommendations.
