Yikes !What Happened to Whitman's Samplers?
December 23, 2017 11:17am CST
We always liked Whitman's Samplers with the double layers and map. I got a box yesterday..I thought they were a good price at only 5.00, but there is a big catch..that buys you an 8 oz box!! No double layers! Inflation I guess. They had the map and most of the old favorites..but I was expecting a regular size box. Oh well, I suppose I don't need all that chocolate hanging around..However, I feel kind of ripped off. I suppose the double layer box is 10. At least I still have some for guests..Have you bought any Christmas chocolate?

There's a Whitman's Chocolate factory in St. Augustine on the east coast of Florida. Every time I visit St. Augustine I just have to stop by the factory and take a tour. They let you eat chocolate and sample the goodies all along the tour! One of my favorite things to do!

I buy dinky little packets of Lindt chocolates but when I work out how much each piece costs I'm always a bit horrified. Luckily I don't buy it too often. We were given small tins of toffees once for helping out at something and there were just 6 toffees rattling around in a tin that could have held 20. It's pretty annoying - just the principle of putting as few as possible and charging as much as possible.

I didn't buy any chocolates this year. I do not remember the last time i bought them but can be sure they don't give as much as they used to give out. Did you ever read the series about a catering place by Isis Crawford and the one character is always pulling chocolates out all the time even when they go out solving a mystery! I am not sure what the series is called though?
