Sponge Candy at Watson’s Chocolates
When we alerted our social networks about our trip to Buffalo, one of the local delicacies that we were told to try was Sponge Candy.
We like candy, so bring it.
Sponge candy is unlike any other sweet treat I have tried. And, something the four of us can absolutely get behind.
The orangish center of the candy is made of spun caramel and then completely covered in a thick layer of silky smooth chocolate. Each piece is about an inch square and actually resembles a sponge, thought tastes much better than that sponge sitting next to your kitchen sink. Sponge Candy doesn’t stick in your teeth and has its own distinct flavor. Comparing it to a malted caramel milk ball would be an okay comparison, but that definitely doesn’t do it justice. You just have to try a piece for yourselves to really understand how good these sweet treats are!
That being said, I immediately suggest you make friends with Buffalonians and have them ship you some. Or you can order some online via Watson’s Chocolates here.
