♪ ♫ These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things.....♪ ♫

Ambrosia Chocolate~

Here in Wisconsin we are known for:
Beer, Brats, Cheese and
Our Love of  Sports.
But what people might not know is...
Here in Wisconsin we have a Sweet Tooth~
We love our Chocolate...
Good, Quality Chocolate....
Ambrosia Chocolate...

It you are from Wisconsin and
you carry on your family's tradition of making homemade Chocolate Christmas Candy,
you know all about Ambrosia Chocolate.
Your grandma, mom, great aunts, in-laws, everyone you know....
makes Christmas candy using Ambrosia chocolate.

It is "The Only" chocolate you would use to make your Christmas Candy with.
During the months of November and December,
you can find Ambrosia Chocolate at any grocery store in Wisconsin.
You can buy it by the pound or in 10-20 lb slabs.

Ambrosia Chocolate has been in Milwaukee since 1894 and
it has been a family tradition in Wisconsin ever since.
As soon as my Christmas tree is up and decorated,
it's time to go to the grocery store and
buy some Ambrosia Chocolate.
It just would not be Christmas at my house without Ambrosia Chocolate...
sitting on the counter top...
waiting to be melted and
made into my families favorite candies~
Oh how I love the smell of melting Chocolate.
Peanut Cluster Anyone?? Double Chocolate??
