I agree, I could live on their chocolate pretzels. How about others out there? Favorite Sarris Candies treat?

I've loved the Sarris mint chip ice cream since I was little. I can't eat mint chip anywhere else!

Al - While I appreciate your comment and saw the humor in it, I took it down because I didn't feel it was quite appropriate for this site, which has readers both young and old. If you can express that opinion a little differently, I'd be happy to leave it up!

I’m so glad that Sarris will only be down a couple of weeks. They are a great company. With a great product. And they are a great asset to the community. But, what I don’t understand is how the firefighters just left after the fire and not start eating all that chocolate that they just saved. Also I understand some of them were even dripping and slipping in the chocolate. Now if you take out the factor that the chocolate was uneatable, and make one of the firefighters Ryan Reynolds, that’s like a dream of mine.
