Dean's Sweets Feature and Giveaway!

 
Nestled among the shops in Portland, you'll find an understated shop, Dean's Sweets.  You would never expect to find the out-of-this world chocolates inside but you do.  Anyone who is familiar with Maine knows you often find no frills, regular people living in the area.  Nothing too fancy.  Among the chocolate shops up and down the East Coast that exclaim to be the best, you'll find Dean who well, doesn't need to shout out the fact that his chocolates are truly amazing and one of a kind.  These chocolates - hand-made, hand-dipped and nut free.  Most are gluten free and they even offer a line of dairy free!  Yes! They use local ingredients whenever possible which I love!

What I love most about these truffles is that no flavor is too overpowering.  The perfect balance.  Dean, a former architect, offers his personal approach and attention to detail in each batch of these delicious truffles and sweets.  I was able to sample a few flavors and enjoyed the perfect chocolate harmony.  My favorites were, hands down the SPICY, which included a mix of cinnamon, hot coffee and cayenne.  I love hot stuff so the sweet paired with a little heat was the perfect indulgence for my taste!  The balance of flavors paired with dark chocolate. Rich, satisfing and out of this world delicious!

The Sea Salt Caramel also offerred the wonderful mix of flavors - nothing was overpowering, just subtle but deep.  The shell is their semi sweet chocolate with large pieces of crunchy salt.  So good that I would probably pick this as my #1 holiday pick for gift giving.  Of course any of their samplers: 
Boozy, Spicy, Maine Mix and Fruity would make lovely holiday gifts for anyone.  They offer 8 piece and 16 piece samplers as well as individual flavors at Dean's Sweets!  Oh, and did I mention they have new chocolate bars and also sell hot chocolate?  Yes, please!

  9. Do I have to pick? Can I say I most want to try all of them? I think I'd pick the Sea Salt Caramel, but I want to eat them all!:)

  10. Seriously?! I don't think it's possible to narrow it down to ONE favorite, they ALL sound irresistible and I read EVERY mouth watering description of every flavor and that only made it even harder.
    To make it a LITTLE bit easier ... I can say if I were able to choose one of the MIXES... I'd choose the MAINE MIX especially because I'd soooo love to try the Salted Caramel, Maple, and Needham as some of my top flavor choices!

    Do you know what flavors we get if we are lucky enough to win? It almost doesn't matter though, because like I said any of them would be a special treat!

    Thank you to you and the sponsor for this yummy yum yum giveaway opportunity!
