Last time I drove home from Michigan, I was with a friend; a friend who likes chocolate. So when we saw signs advertising The Chocolate Garden, we were intrigued. We got off the exit and headed down a country road. The place wasn’t too far off the highway, but the rural atmosphere of the location made us think we were in the wrong location.
Then we saw the house with the Chocolate Garden sign. So this time, knowing where I was going, I drove right to it. Also, there was a lot more activity on the road, with people picking fruit at the neighboring apple orchard.This isn’t just any chocolate shop – they only sell truffles (and a few home decor-type items). The truffles, however, are so good, they’ve been featured on Food Network, and the Chicago Tribune.
To discover which truffles you’d like to buy – for $2.99, they will allow you to taste test three different kinds. You read what’s in them and then list the three you’d like to try. So if you’re heading up #94 through Michigan, here’s another place to stop.
