My husband grew up in Green Bay, and many of his family members still live there, so itâ€™s not surprising that Seroogyâ€™s chocolates are a staple for us during all the major candy-centered holidays.
Seroogyâ€™s has made candy in De Pere, just outside of Green Bay, for more than 100 years, and its chocolate is the richest, creamiest and most addictive I have ever tasted. The fudge, the almond bark, the fairy food -- it's all divine and evil at the same time.
Yesterday, my kids received two large Seroogyâ€™s chocolate Easter eggs in the mail from my brother and sister-in-law. The eggs are about the size of a baked potato, solid chocolate and feature their names written in frosting across the top.
I am usually doing everything possible to keep sugar-loaded edibles out of the hands of my kids, but when it comes to Seroogyâ€™s, I let them gobble with reckless abandon.
I think itâ€™s important to teach kids the difference between good chocolate and bad chocolate. Life's too short to waste time on Dolly Madison.
It's not Easter without a Seroogy's fudge egg, and its not Christmas without the angel food candy. Interesting note... actor Tony Shaloub of Monk fame is a relative of the Seroogy family.

I LOVE Joe Seroogy. He's a great guy with a great business. I served Seroogy Chocolate at my wedding, and it was a huge hit.
