Holiday Treats: Ganong Delecto


Little known Ganong Canadiana chocolate facts (well, little known at least to me): 1) Ganong Bros. is Canada's oldest candy company, started in 1873. 2) Ganong created their original Chicken Bones in 1885. 3) The head office and manufacturing plant is located on Chocolate Drive.

All this and more I learned at the 5th Annual Chocs-O-Fun, hosted by Bryana Ganong.

With wine glass in one hand, and the other busied with sampling chocolate after chocolate, I chatted and conversed more about chocolates than I ever have before.

Ganong's newest product is Fruitfull au chocolat, fresh fruit jellies covered in dark chocolate. I'm not a big fan of jellies to begin with, and now I also know that they don't improve with the addition of chocolate. But what I did discover to my pleasure is the Delecto line, specifically Ganong's version of Turtles made with cashews. Honestly, forget Turtles - Delecto is the way to go. I haven't stopped eating them since. And hence, the holiday pounds start a mountin'.
