ISO Dark Chocolate Malt Balls

Anyone know where I can find "dark" chocolate malt balls? The local Hannaford use to sell them in the bulk area, but then they went away. They gotta be dark.

  1. Do you have a fresh market near you? They are based in NC but I saw one had opened as far north as north jersey when I recently went home. They have dark chocolate covered everything, including malt balls. :)

      The only Fresh Market in MA is in Hingham.

    2. i'm not 100% sure on this but i think Russo's might carry these in their bulk candy section.

        Talk about this candy section at Russo's? I have never noticed one!

        1. re: dulce de leche

          There are several different places to find candy at Russo's, actually - there are chocolate bars under the displays facing the registers, and there are also usually candies and cookies on the shelves that divide the wing with dairy, meats, greens, etc. from the main part of the store (on the side facing towards the registers.)

          The bulk candies are pre-packaged in plastic boxes, in that same side wing towards the back, very close to the little room in the far back where they put cabbage, broccoli, the discount racks, and so on. If you're facing that back room, the bulk candies are on the left.

            Ah! Ok, I've only noticed nuts and seeds and forager-type stuff in the bulk spot, not the candy. I wonder what is wrong with me.

      2. I have seen them at Whole Wallet aka Hole in Your Wallet, but I cannot remember which branch. It certainly is worth a call to the market closest to where you live.

          I think I have seen them at the Fresh Pond Whole Foods.

        2. I'm pretty sure I've seen them in the candy shop at the Jordan's Furniture in Reading. You can catch an Imax movie while you're there, or a burger at Fuddruckers, or both.

          1. Thanks for the suggestions.

            I think I've looked at Russo's candy section and only found the milk chocolate malt balls.

            The Jordan's is a great idea since it's very close to work. I'll check them out on my lunch break. I forgot they had a candy shop.
