Sorry if this is stupid, but does the brandy in the ingredients add any non-negligible alcohol content, or is it minimal? (I realize this might be a subjective question...)

Mmmm dark chocolate and cherries. Nothing can go wrong.

----
Anyone know how these compare vs the staple "red" box choc covered cherries you see all over especially around Christmas? Just curious as I still have plenty of those. If these were like crazy delicious and a must buy like the salted caramels I'll have to think long ans hard before my decision can be made.

At first glance, it looked like you guys were selling snails! Including a severely injured snail at that.

DID YOU READ THE DESCRIPTION? I was drooling by the end.

I love chocolate covered cherries. I don't like chocolate covered cherries with alcohol. Thank goodness these have it so I can not buy them.

No offense to Candy Basket, but THESE are the ones you want: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BZ9EI8/ref=ox_ya_os_product. The cherries have not been maraschinoed, there is no sugary-sweet fondant, it's just yummy dark chocolate surrounding a cherry floating drunkenly in a pool of excellent brandy. (Definitely not for children - or only the very precocious ones.) They are imported from Germany, and are only available for a brief period every year.

I'm still hoarding a remaining precious few left from a Xmas purchase ...

I have to agree with ginawoot on this one. If you're a cherry cordial lover, Asbach is the best I've ever had.

If you are someone who doesn't want the sugary filling or the alcohol:
Chocolate covered Bing Cherries
Problem, of course, is since they are not too sweet, you can consume large quantities at a time. Yummy snack treat !
You can even share them with children if you want. Big if. You might not want to share them with anyone at all .

As much I absolutely love cherry cordials, these are a tad pricey at almost a dollar each. Normally that would not stop me, but when I also factor in the two boxes of salted caramels I still have, and the three boxes of candy I just bought from the Home Plus! sale (1 truffle and two caramels), I just can't jump on this sale. They should have salted some of these and included them in the Salted Assortment on the Plus sale!

So what you're saying is package up some gourmet salt, a creme brulee torch and call it a "salt your own" kit? Would that work for you?

I'm just hanging out, really.

Yes, I am now a firm believer that all chocolate products should be salted. I think it is a no-brainer. SALT SELLS!

Noooo! Dangit, Woot! I just placed and order for this and was going to place a companion order for the salted mixed box and you just removed it!

I hate you.

She totally suckered you into that one, North. You have no choice now but to buy salt.

Nah, I own plenty of salt, including a nice container of fleur de sel and lots of sea salt. I don't pay extra money for someone to infuse my salt with a flavor can I can add on my own.

I'm crushed that there's no bacon-flavored salt. Who wouldn't like their gourmet chocolates with a hint of bacon?

I would love to buy these, but I've already take advantage of the other Candy Basket deals. Of course, there was a LOT of hinting to my husband, so I should have these snagged by Valentine's Day.

If Kipi or Hayden stop by this offering, I do have one question. How will freezing or refridgeration affect these cordials? Will either have a negative effect on the filling if frozen or refridgerated then brought back to room temp for consumption?

The Candy Basket? An automatic buy! Have bought their other products and they are superb!

I'm looking forward to trying these. My favorites used to be the Brach's brand of chocolate covered cherries, but they disappeared from store shelves years ago.

And cheaper too.



You are really going to try and compare mass-produced chocolates that you buy at the dollar store with hand-made gourmet ones?

I'm assuming you don't buy the wine woot offers either because you prefer Franzia White Zin?

Now, now. Let's not get nasty (Franzia...). I happen to like Cellas too. I think it's similar to liking what you grew up with, like your mother's cooking.

Do these have a clear liquid centers or is it the white cream type of filling?

How come a few are wrapped in foil? Is that just for decoration, or are those different than the others?

And after you have this healthy liquor infused fruit, I suggest you follow it w/a bit of dark chocolate w/liquid espresso. http://www.amazon.com/Pocket-Coffee-Ferrero-Piece-Packs/dp/B000Y8Y5F4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1359676158&sr=8-3&keywords=pocket+candy

Without a doubt! Asbach Uralt used to be my go-to brandy. Also, notice that the link above is for TWO layers of chocolates (50 count for $60 delivered). You can also find a box of 100g for $11 with free shipping: http://www.amazon.com/Asbach-Uralt-Chocolate-Cordial-Cherries/dp/B001L0JYLY if you want to just have a taste and not get all fat and drunk at delivery. ;-)

Hmm. Those are $2.20/oz and $0.97/pc. The Candy Basket ones are $1.38/oz or $0.89/pc. not counting the $5 shipping for woot.

The Asbach ones are $48.69. I'm tempted for a head-to-head taste-off.
