Asher Chocolates Review and Giveaway US only Ends 5/29

Taste and tradition since 1892

A Scottish farm boy hailing from Ontario, Canada, Chester A. Asher had a mind for business and a passion for confections. He worked for a candy factory in Boston briefly, before he decided to break out on his own as a confectioner. In 1892, he founded the Asher’s candy making business in Center City Philadelphia. Within a few years, he moved the successful company to Philadelphia’s historic Germantown section. In the early years, the staff of six also made maple syrup, jams and jellies, and did some canning. The store even included baked items and ice cream – a variety of products, but one shared commitment to quality and taste.
The original recipes (many of which are still used today) were written by Chester himself on the back of the sugar bags! Passersby could gaze at the original storefront window where chocolate collections and "sweets from all over the world" including European style bonbons and rare candies were displayed.
Asher's Chocolates White Chocolate Smothered Mini Pretzels

We got to try out the white chocolate covered pretzels, my husband took claim to these, and he said they are great. They came in a cooler box, which I thought was really neat. When my husband was kind enough to share with the kids, they were in love.  They look great, and the reaction from my family made me even want to try them. Knowing I don't really like Chocolate should tell you how good these really must taste. 
Ashers also offers tons of other chocolate products as well.
