For over 100 years, Purdy’s has been in the business of chocolate. Even with 55 stores across Canada, they are a chocolate company that continues to grow. They are not the Thomas Haas of chocolate but they do have good quality confections. Perfect for when you have those chocolate cravings and need a quick fix.
Those who know Purdy’s have their favourite chocolate treat. My favourite are Sweet Georgia Browns. If you have never tried one of these, it may sound a lot like Turtle’s, a chocolate from Nestle’s but Sweet Georgia Browns are much larger and very decadent which makes them oh so lovely and different.
Imagine jumbo Georgia pecans (hence the name) roasted with a touch of salt combined with sweet creamy caramel and topped off with a dollop of smooth milk chocolate. This ooey gooey concoction is the perfect balance of sweet and savoury and one that would satisfy any sweet tooth. Why have a standard chocolate candy bar when you could have one of these?
If you don’t have a Purdy’s chocolate shop near you yet, you can order them online and get them sent anywhere in North America.
Sweet Georgia Browns are not fancy and they don’t have attitude. These chocolates make no excuses for their less than neat appearance. They don’t have to. They are that good.
