Ashers Chocolates

Some great chocolates you seek out on your own and others are thrust upon you as gifts. That was the case with these adorable bonbons from Asher’s Chocolates. I enjoy seeking out chocolates on my own since I know what my tastes are and how I feel like catering to them. Yet, it’s always so nice to try something new thanks to the thoughtfulness from a special someone. Not only is the surprise nice, but I also don’t admit to knowing everything out there in the great wide chocolate world. I do need to rely on other’s experiences and recommendations from time to time.

Asher’s is a chocolate company based in Philadelphia where they rose from humble beginnings back before the turn of the 20th century. Their story is similar to that of See’s Candies, a family run business that prided itself in making excellent confections. Asher’s is actually the oldest family owned candy making company in the Unites States and are being run by the fourth generation at the moment. It’s great to see a family so interested in their sweet traditions.

I was given a sampler pack of their milk and dark bonbons:

Mint: The dark chocolate is nice and rich and thankfully not too sweet. The mint has a nice freshness without being overpowering, which is a lot of my problem with minty and chocolate combinations. The texture of the ganache is smooth, creamy and just heavenly.

Peanut Butter Cup: The peanut butter is creamier, richer, and sweeter than the crumbly, dry standard of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The milk chocolate is very smooth and sweet. Paired with the nutty, slightly salty peanut butter it makes one addictive little treat.

Coconut:Very sweet. The coconut is moist with a good dense, chewy texture. The full coconut flakes are still intact and I love chewing them. I consider this to be a more decadent version of a Mounds bar.

Peanut Butter Bonbon: Like the cup version but since the size ratios are different, it comes off as denser, sweeter, richer…Yum!

Blood Orange: Dark choc orange. orange jelly on the inside, can taste the fresh orange oil, flavors balanced well so neither overpower the other.

Marshmallow: Very, very mellow in flavor. The marshmallow is fresh and tastes lightly vanilla. The chocolate delivers most of the flavor and it’s very creamy and sweet.

These were certainly a step above of the other chocolate confections of this type, and the best of this kind I’ve had in a long time. Freshness was a big contributor, but I also feel the quality flavors and chocolate played a big part too. I look forward to visiting their retail store someday to try what other delights Asher’s has to offer.

Rating: WIll Buy Again (Even though I didn’t buy it the first time, haha)

  2. Thank you, it’s very wonderfull article it might be very hospitable for students. For example last year when I had a difficult of time at the end of semester with a eternal flow of academic assignments and drill, I had a admirable idea to buy it somewhere and than use plagiarism checker. I was so bushed that I did not care for what can come to light when my academic work was written by flipside person. To my admirable surprise, research paper was deserving the price I paid for it. I was so satisfied with the quality and now everytime i use this service.
