Chocolate Luxury at Graham’s Fine Chocolate

| August 26, 2009 | 1 Comment

What do you think of when you hear the word decadence?  Luxurious, fancy, a bit self-indulgent…  As for me, I think of one thing… Chocolate!  Creamy, sweet, amazing chocolate.  And here in the western suburbs there is only one place to go for this kind of decadent luxury- Graham’s Fine Chocolate.

You name it, they got it!  Truffles, caramel, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, fruity, minty, …  They have anything and everything a chocolate and fine candy lover could dream of.  And it is all SO, SO good.  I love their chocolate turtles and the mint meltaways .  And of course the hand-dipped chocolate covered strawberries… How I wish I had one right now!  The perfect sweet treat on a summer evening.

Started in 1987 by former high school music teacher Robert Untied, Graham’s has quickly become a favorite stop for many Chicagoland chocolate lovers both young and old.  Recently voted the best candy/sweets shop in the western suburbs by West Suburban Living magazine, Graham’s Fine Chocolates has much more to offer than just chocolate (although for me, that would be more than enough). Their ice cream treats also ranked as some of the best in the suburbs.  Graham’s has two locations, one in downtown Wheaton (opened in 2000) and the original shop on third street in Geneva.  Down the street from their Geneva location, they opened up a coffee shop (also award-winning) where they serve the finest coffee and pastries and chocolate fondue all in a quaint setting complete with fireplace and cozy seating.  Add in the freeWiFi and you’ve got a mommy-blogger paradise!

Graham’s prides themselves on only serving the best in handmade, hand-dipped treats.  It is a family run business with the owner’s two daughters coming up along side him and his wife also very much a part of the day-to-day business operations.  I love it when I can support local families, doing their best to follow their dreams and make it in the economy we have today.  I don’t think Graham’s is in danger of not making it.  It is always pretty busy anytime I have ever stopped by.  I guess people know a good thing when they see it.  And Graham’s Fine Chocolates is just that… a VERY good thing.  Next time you are in the neighborhood, stop by and experience the chocolate decadence for yourself.
