Best Chocolate Ever! [Manchester, CT]

I'm a regular chowhound lurker who has never posted, but as I've just had the best dang chocolate of my life [and I'm a lifelong chocoholic who's tried it all], I'm inspired to post.

I was at Shady Glen [Manchester Parkade] when I noticed a new place in the stripmall "Organic Belgium Chocolates". [The storefront is kind of weird and corporate looking with no hours posted.] I gave it a shot and the chocolate was good -- real good. Dark, sort of crunches apart in your mouth and fresh, really fresh tasting. I had the Chambord and Amaretto truffles [made with the real liquors] and they were worlds apart from the big, waxy style truffle [far better than Neuhas]. I also had a toffee/crunch square that highlighted just how good the plain chocolate is. They make their stuff on the premises and it's all organic [which frankly never suggested good chocolate to me in the past]. I think the official name of the store is Divine Treasures.

So, while you won't get the candy store atmosphere of say the former Crand's Candy Castle, you will get some amazing chocolate. I can't wait to go back.
