Looking for information on Glarus Chocolates in Baltimore.
Has anyone tried it?

    They are a treat for me every now and again when I am down at Harbor East. I think they are pretty darn good, but pricey enough not to be an everyday chocolate. I don't think they are intended to be. I seem to remember one with sea salt that was my favorite.

      I went to the Best of Baltimore party two years ago, and of everything I sampled, only Glarus blew me away. Very tasty and interesting flavor combinations (like lavendar), and I'm not even that much of a chocolate fiend.

        Good truffles, but could add up pricewise (especially since they don't seem to hook you up with free samples...)

          Been eating Glarus Chocolates for many years now - it was easy since their facility was close to my old shop. Really nice chocolates and really great people.

            About a year ago I had these several days after having Spruegli's fresh truffles in Zurich. There is absolutely no comparison. We both felt they were "ok" but nothing exceptional.

              Is there anything that could compare to swiss chocolate? It seems a little unfair to compare them this way (Ive never eaten Glarus but, give em a break)
