Chocolate/Novelty Shops?

a
atarah Mar 7, 2008 10:53 AM

Can anyone recommend any chocolate or novelty shops that might sell chocolate cigars that say "It's a Girl?" I know this is a little odd and specific, but I remember seeing them somewhere, and I want to buy them as a gift.

Any fun, kitschy chocolate shops would be great to hear about.

I'm in Silver Spring, so anywhere in DC or MoCo would be helpful.

Thanks!

    I looked on Google--carolscandycorner.com has the chocolate cigars and will ship within 2-3 days. If you key in "chocolate cigars" on Google, you'll find several providers--and they all ship directly to you. Good luck. FoiGras

      Yes but when you order online you have to pay shipping and in the case of one website I found extra charge for a cooler and ice to prevent the chocolate from melting in shipment. I'd rather buy it locally.

        I agree with Pinknails, but if there aren't any confectioners in the DC area that carry the product, then it would be easier to just pay the additional fees. With the price of gasoline, driving around searching for the candy could be more costly then having it shipped. But, I absolutely believe that it's better to find a local supplier. I'm sure someone will come up with an answer. I have lots of confidence in we Chowhounders. FoiGras

          Not sure if they are quality chocolate but Candy Heaven in Tyson's Corner Center carries them, I believe.

      Maybe Periwinkle in Chevy Chase, DC? If they don't, they might have some suggestions.

        You could probably find them at a place like Hallmark, maybe even at Target. Give them a call.

        Neither Chocolate Chocolate, Chocolate Moose, or Kron carry chocolate cigars.

          ACKC on 14th St is a hot new chocolate shop and they have It's a Girl novelties. They're at 14th & Q NW. They have another shop in Alexandria. If you go, be sure to check out the hot cocoa selections - addictive.

            KRON in the basement of Mazza Gallery sells exactly that sort of stuff. I purchased some for a baby shower.

            I also love ACKC chocolate - try there too.

            Kron Chocolates, in Mazza Gallerie, might have them.

              The place ktmoomau is talking about I think is Chocolate Chocolate, but I agree with katecm that Chocolate Moose, which is across the street, would probably be a better bet for something like that. I love that store, you'll find some fun gift there, in any case.

                Definitely Chocolate Moose, on the northwest corner of CT and L.

                  You know I think I have seen them somewhere, this is totally out on a limb, but there is a chocolate shop at Farragut North in the building with Spezie, Mortons and Victoria Secret, I don't know the name, but if you can figure out what it is I would call them, they might have it, they do chocolate novelty stuff.
