New York Times’ Florence Fabricant On Veruca's Chocolate Spider Webs

Florence Fabricant, longtime Mouth fan and food critic for The New York Times, has been charmed by the beautiful, creepy crawly Chocolate Spider Webs made by Veruca Chocolates in Chicago, Illinois. 

Just one bite and you’re trapped — you may have to finish an entire one of these smart, generous treats. The four-inch chocolate webs, complete with spider, are fashioned by Veruca Chocolates in Chicago and come three flavors to the box. Gilded dark chocolate is tangy with sea salt, milk chocolate is brushed with silver and studded with crunchy candied bits, and caramelized white chocolate has salt and cacao nibs throughout.

Our friends at Veruca Chocolates have immortalized the itsy, bitsy spider in scary-good chocolate bars – and oh, the webs they weave!

Each box contains a trifecta of addictive arachnids to make your skin crawl, in the good, goosebumps kind of way: smooth, silver-shimmering milk chocolate; gold-gilded 64% dark chocolate with crunchy salt flakes; and caramelized white chocolate with cacoa nibs and sea salt.

One bite, we’re sure, will make your head spin.

Happy Halloween!
