Chocolate is always a good idea, especially when it’s of the boozy variety. Think Stout and Bourbon Pecan. If spicy is more your style, Raspberry Habanero and Wasabi Caramels are worth a try. For the classics in the crowd, there’s plenty of milk and dark turtles, bark, and caramel waves in stock. These guys recently re-opened up shop in downtown Buffalo, so let’s show them some love.
