Recchiuti is a special place in the Ferry Building and needless to say quite dangerous. The chocolate selection of artisan chocolates, truffles and chocolate bars are tremendous.
Recchiuti’s s’mores bites are on a whole other level. A package contains 4 s’mores bites for $8. The fluffy marshmallow, graham coating and chocolate coating is absolutely delectable and is hard to just enjoy one.
We love the little Droste Pastilles. Half white half milk, the combination is a nice combo of sweet and creamy. The little tablets are perfect when there is a need for European chocolate. A little pick me up.
We picked up several Ferrero Tronkys. According to the Valentine red package, it is a crunchy wafer filled with hazelnuts and chocolately filling. They are some of the best hazelnut wafers out there.

We always takes boxes of Tronky home to enjoy the creamy hazelnut filling and crisp wafers.
Within Plaza Las Americas is Magritte Chocalatier. Magritte has been a candy institution in the mall for over twenty years. The Willy Wonka candy world is filled with wide eyed children and yielding parents who select chocolate, fudge, gummies, nostalgia candy and lollies.
Magritte’s colorful window display filled with childlike wonder and propoganda.
Our mouths watered when we spotted the chocolate covered marshmallows, apples and berries.
Old Port Candy Co. is a fantastic haven for nostalgia candy, chocolate covered everything and Maine sweets. The chocolate covered oreos, pretzels, truffles and bark were so tempting. Next time, we are going to try their award-winning fudge and sample the sea salt caramel, maple walnut, fluffer nutter and birthday cake batter fudge.
I love chocolate covered peeps any season, so I stock up post Easter. Our mother loves Maple candy, so anytime we are in Maine, Vermont or New Hampshire, we are on the lookout.
Do you remember Sixlets? They were round M&M like chocolate candies coated in a thicker candy coating. Love them.
What we had to purchase and try was the chocolate-dipped bacon for $1.99 each slice.
The salty sweet bacon was covered in a thick layer of chocolate and dusted with bits of sea salt. The flavor was unique and fun to try.
