Yummy goodness

Quite possibly some of the yummiest homemade chocolates come from Furlong's Cottage Candies. My mom worked for them when she was in high school, and could still identify what kind of filling was in them based on the swirls and/or drizzles on the tops.

My dad would always get her some for special occasions. He has been getting them for me and my sister for Valentine's Day, too.

They are quite good, the creme filled ones. I am a fan of the dark chocolate orange cremes; see the picture above. (the milk chocolate orange cremes are equally as good) My mom said she was at her heaviest when she worked there. Employees were allowed to eat whatever they wanted, as long as it wasn't in front of the customers! My gosh, I would always be in the back finding something to eat. I mean do.

Sadly, our box of 2 lb creme filled chocolates is nearly empty....(although, it is 13 days past Valentines Day, so it is amazing there are any left at all!)

Oh the cream filled ones are my favorites too!! I like vanilla cream though. That was a great mom story! I would be HUGE if I worked there!

Oh my gosh. Those look delicous! And she could eat whatever she wanted??? WOW!!!

Hey, I love the orange cream ones too. :)

Sorry I haven't been around lately. We've been having a bunch of bad luck!
