Chocolate Candy Help in Pittsburgh

Looking for fine chocolate made in the Pittsburgh area. All I know is that I like all of it. Which is not very discerning. Of course, the first place I think of is Sarris. But a little Google trip found A Taste Of Chocolate, Edward Marc Chocolatier, Sinful Sweets, and Betsy Ann Chocolates. And there may be others that you could mention. A little help here would be appreciated. So where’s good/great chocolate made in the Pittsburgh area? Thanks.

      Thanks for that, but I don't think they actually make anything there. Not like a local product.

        There's a fudge making company in the Strip, too. I don't remember the name.

    2. I'm far from a chocolate connoisseur, but a friend sent me truffles from Edward Marc Chocolatier which are a pretty obvious step up from Sarris. I really like their "one sweet gesture" donation program.

      I was just reading the history of Sarris and saw that they bought Gardner's in 1997 (based out of Tyrone) a Peanut Butter Meltaway from either company is hard to beat.

      1. Love Edward Marc's chocolate covered salted caramels. If you are looking for gifts, their packaging is very tasteful. The store on the South Side is fun and also sells ice cream, milk shakes, etc.

          I'm pretty sure I'd HATE to go to a chocolate candy store and HAVE to eat a hot fudge sundae, too !!

          ps; Got a great shake at Burgatory

        2. There is a local chocolate place called Andy's on Steubenville Pike in Bulger Pa. I don't claim to be any authority on chocolate, but I love this place!

          1. Bob Sendell makes his dark chocolate Toffee Taboo in the northside. You can buy it on line or at a number of local gourmet & specialty shops.
