OK, this is a long shot, I know. I am looking for a local source of chocolate truffle shells. Ten years ago or so, I used to buy them from either EA Tosi & Sons or Imported Foods. Both companies have disappeared. I have found an online source, but I'd rather buy them locally if I can. Dole & Bailey is absolutely bizarre about selling to non-wholesale customers (why the rest of the world manages to keep retail and wholesale customers separate but it gets D&B's panties in a hella twist, I don't know, but it does). Jack Smilie doesn't sell that kind of thing, though they do have chocolate dessert shells sometimes. That's it, that's all my ideas - anyone know of a source? Thanks!
Oh, and while I'm at it, I came across a great idea for sticking a thin peppermint stick into the truffle shell hole and then enrobing around it, so you basically have a truffle-on-a-stick. So now I'm looking for small thin peppermint sticks, too, if anyone has seen them anywhere.
