Lindt Chocolate Shop (Carlisle, PA)

Hello chocolate lovers. This week’s blog post is on Lindt chocolate. I recently stopped at the Lindt chocolate shop in Carlisle, PA. Everyone knows Lindt is known for its delicious Swiss chocolate & truffles. The Lindt store that I stopped at is located on 40 Logistics Drive Suite 100 Factory Outlet, Carlisle, PA. The atmosphere of the store is comfortable with the sweet aroma of delicious mouth watering chocolate. It is definitely worth the stop if you’re passing through Pennsylvania. The staff were very good, making sure to answer any questions you have. Customers also get a free chocolate to taste when they arrive.

They have a wide selection of chocolates, and when customers arrive, they have the option to pick from season special chocolates that may be left over from the recent holiday, or they can pick any of the chocolate truffles of their choice, to create 1 or 2 lbs. of chocolate. I chose to go with a half-pound. The flavors that I picked out of the big variety were Mint, Dark Chocolate, Blueberries and Cream, Fudge Swirl, Orange, Cappuccino, & Red Velvet. My favorites were Red Velvet, Orange, Mint, and the Dark Chocolate.

They’re open Monday-Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm, and on Sunday’s from 11 am to 5 pm. 

I would recommend visiting the Lindt chocolate store to anyone who’s looking for a great place to stop for chocolate in Carlisle, PA.  If you are interested in checking out the Lindt Chocolate store, click here: https://www.lindtusa.com

Fun fact: The Lindt chocolates for the USA are actually made at the Lindt factory in Stratham, New Hampshire, and is then shipped to the distribution centers in Carlisle, PA and Charlotte, NC.

Black Forest Cake is a popular dessert over in Germany especially in the Black Forest., It is one of my favorite desserts. This dessert usually uses chocolate cake, but since I didn’t have the right cake mix, I decided to add my own spin on it by creating a Red Forest Cake using red velvet cake. This recipe is super easy to make, and is a great treat for dessert, a snack, or a special occasion. It is also a great recipe to get kids involved.I look forward to reading your comments!

Sprinkles Cupcake ATM

fullsizeoutput_70b

Sprinkles Cupcake ATM is a cupcake ATM machine that is open 24/7, and has a number of cupcake ATMs across the United States. When I first heard about this cupcake ATM, I wasn’t quite sure how a cupcake from an ATM would taste. The cupcake ATM is positioned outside their bakery shop, so they can stock the ATM with fresh cupcakes every day. I stopped by the one in Nashville, Tennessee that offered a wide variety of flavors such as dark chocolate, banana, carrot, chocolate marshmallow, cinnamon sugar to name a few. I chose the red velvet cupcake, and was truly surprised with the result. It was the moistest and tastiest cupcake I’ve ever eaten. In fact, they also offer a doggy cupcake, if your taking your pooch for a walk. If you are in an area with a Sprinkles cupcake ATM, I highly recommend stopping by the cupcake ATM machine to try their cupcakes. You definitely won’t regret it!!! If you stop by to try a Sprinkles cupcake bakery with a cupcake ATM, let me know what you think.
