Fowler’s Unveils Special Flavors for National Sponge Candy Day

| Family Fun, Food & Drink

Buffalo’s signature sweet treat, made of crunchy, airy honeycomb toffee and enrobed in chocolate, has been a shelf staple at nearly all of our local chocolatiers for decades. It’s often imitated outside of Buffalo, but never duplicated. And while some may debate which shop makes it best, you can’t deny that Fowler’s Chocolates, making sponge candy since 1910, is always a part of the conversation.

Now, just in time for National Sponge Candy Day on September 21, Fowler’s Chocolates has released a special, limited-edition collection box filled with six enormous pieces of sponge candy each adorned with a topping that sponge candy has never seen before.

The collection, limited to 400 boxes and available in Fowler’s retail locations and online only through September 22nd, includes each individual flavor creation dressed in either milk or dark chocolate

Take a look below to get a taste of the six amazing new flavors and see what Fowler’s recommends pairing their sponge sweets with. It’s a sponge candy pairing!
