What my customers have reported

"Your truffles are just about perfect, some of the finest I've had and I went to school in Paris!"
- Chef Laura Cabot,Laura Cabot Catering, Waldoboro, ME

"Insanely sensual..."
- Stephanie from Portland, ME

I just received your truffles as a gift from my mother as she was traveling on the east coast and ran across them. She said she just had to buy them for me once she found out they were nut free. You see my son is allergic to peanuts and we have decided to make our entire house nut free. One of the things I miss the most is really great chocolate! They are a wonderful treat for a mom that will not eat anything her children can not eat. She gave me the coffee flavor and I can not wait to try more flavors, you can bet that I will be ordering more soon. I will also be passing on your information to the Food Allergy Support Group of Minnesota as we are always looking for great new foods that we can all enjoy.
- Jodi, Blaine, Minnesota

"They were perfect, but maybe we should tell Dean they arrived as mush so we'll get more because they are DELICIOUS!! They were very nicely packaged, with a lavender bow around them, and your gift card hand written. I didn't know Dean was a real person, but I could tell he had a "class act".
Priscilla, upon receiving Dean's Sweets shipped across the country,
