  1.  Lucky Chocolates Truffles
Lucky Chocolates Truffles These squares of hand crafted delight come in a host of flavors.  We're partial to the salted caramel, but hey you may prefer Fresh Mint, Macha Latte, Powerful Pomegranite or stop in their shop in Saugerties to decide which yummy ones will tantalize your honey. http://www.luckychocolates.com/ 2.  Fruition Chocolate Tumbled Raspberries You can find Fruition in a few spots, but we really love their little shop in Woodstock.  These little treats in a jar are absolutely seductive in so many ways. Fruition has a wonderful selection of chocolate bars and treats.  You also should try their chocolate dusted almonds.  Wow. http://www.tastefruition.com/   awestruck lavender cider 3.  Awestruck Lavender Hops Hard Cider Say what?  Yup, this new small batch crafter of delicious local hard cider is making one with lavender infused in it.  Guess what.  It's sumptuous.  Would be nice with a host of things, although our favorite paring is the glass of this to one's lips.  Can be found at a number of local wine and liquor stores.  We got ours at Beer World in Saugerties. http://www.awestruckciders.com/
