Fran’s Chocolates Who was the first person to add salt to a caramel? Fran of Fran’s chocolates. The handmade caramels from Fran’s Chocolates are among the most delicious candies we’ve ever tried. These award-winning confections are made with gray salt harvested off the coast of Brittany. The gourmet salt perfectly complements the rich dark chocolate and fresh buttery caramel to create lingering layers of flavor. Fresh stock in the shop for Valentine’s Day!

Wine of the Week
Trimbach Pinot Gris Reserve Personnelle ’12
“Pale straw-green. Pristine aromas of white stone fruits and balsamic herbs. Rich and ripe but very fresh too, with lively acidity enlivening the orchard fruit and balsamic spice flavors and extending the finish. The wine’s residual sugar is obvious but it nonetheless comes across as basically dry, extremely precise and not at all heavy. The long aftertaste features notes of smoked beef, tropical fruits and flint. A knockout Pinot Gris.”
