After some scheduling issues, we finally made a trip to Confections with Convictions to check them out. We are so very glad we did! We were greeted by Dale himself who smiled from behind the case of beautiful treats. After introductions, Dale starting telling us about each treat as if they were his children. The confections are not only beautiful but they are incredibly flavorful too. He has such thoughtful combinations (my FAVORITE BY FAR: White Chocolate Truffle with Vanilla, Walnut, and Poppy seeds! Who comes up with that?) and quality ingredients.
His story, including his convictions, are on his website. The concept is truly inspiring. Dale is an amazing artist with a keen sense for chocolate. I was delighted when days later I saw him featured on the Maranda show on WOTV 4.

|Even Little Foodie was in wonderment! |
He couldn't stop staring in the case even though he wasn't able to try any of the treats
|Next time, Little Foodie, next time.|
