      Growing up in Youngstown, Ohio, I thought Gorant candies were available nationwide, but it wasn’t until I moved out of Ohio that I realized how fortunate we were to have them. The store on Market Street is full of Gorant products made at their nearby factory, as well as other gift items that might accompany the chocolate.

      The chocolate at Gorant is definitely the main appeal. The quality can definitely hold up with some of the bigger name luxury chocolates like Godiva. There is a full chocolate flavor, and the texture is creamy and decadent. They


      offer a huge variety of chocolates, including my favorite, the meltaway. I have never had meltaways from any other candy company, so I can only assume it’s special to Gorant. It’s something like a truffle with the soft, ganache-like inside, but whatever they do to it makes it even more melt-in-your mouth. You can get them with nuts or in dark chocolate, and the little squares somehow seem more full of flavor than typical rounded truffles. They also make a ton of different seasonal candy, including eggs filled with some of their favorite chocolate varieties,

      • like pretzel crisp and marshmallow. Although the non-chocolate fillings can edge on being a bit too sweet, the chocolate itself more than compensates for this.

        I’ve always enjoyed going to this store to get my seasonal candy, or just a special treat on occasion. The staff is very friendly, and in addition to all the prepackaged candies offered, they also have a case full of single pieces of chocolate that you can buy by the pound. However, considering the huge selection, the only reason to do this is to customize your box of chocolate! They offer

        great 50-75% off sales right after the big candy holidays (Easter, Valentine’s Day, etc,) and people line up outside for a chance to buy the candy at a discounted price. That’s not to say they don’t sell a lot of stuff at full price. And because the prices aren’t too absurd (for good chocolate!) I’ve never felt bad buying the products at full price.

        I really love Gorant chocolates, and this store represents one of the best locations. Great service, great selection. If you live in the area, check it out. If not, I’d recommend buying the chocolate online!
