Friday Finds – The Uncommon Chocolatier

The highest quality of ingredients and flavors!

Welcome to our first installment of Palmetto Vacation Rentals “FRIDAY FINDS”. Each week we’ll be visiting local businesses and attractions, bringing visitors to the Grand Strand a taste of new places to visit and focusing on attractions that are off the beaten path.

This week we visited “The Uncommon Chocolatier” a brand new fudgery located in the heart of The Market Common in Myrtle Beach. Made from the finest ingredients, The Uncommon Chocolatier offers a variety of handmade fudge, chocolates, and gift items.

Fudge is a staple of Myrtle Beach shops, restaurants, and markets. For half a century, travelers have been able to find fudge at mom and pop stores all along the Grand Strand. Usually only offering Chocolate and a few other flavors to eager travelers, the fudge presence here is as ubiquitous (and drab) as saltwater taffy, hermit crabs, and $99 cent shark tooth necklaces. But, No longer! Today, Alison and myself have discovered a culinary pleasure that would make Gordon Ramsay silent with content.

Originating in Pittsburgh, The Uncommon Chocolatier was started by Christine Falvo. Christine was inspired by her mother, Teresa and now has a third generation of fudge makers in her granddaughter, Elle, whom we spoke with this afternoon.

With over 35 varieties of fudge, chocolate-dipped fruit, and even specialty items, such as chocolate footballs, you can easily spend a whole day sampling and debating which is your favorite. Good luck, though – they are ALL fantastic! Some of the most amazing taste combinations and textures can be had such as: Crème Brule, raspberry cheesecake, cherry bourbon, chocolate strawberry, birthday cake, bananas foster, peanut butter, mint chocolate, red velvet, and “Unicorn Poo” (Cotton Candy – it’s delicious, I swear!).

The décor of the establishment is classic and inviting and is only rivaled by the breathtakingly artistic designs and textures of the main attraction – the fudge. Great care is taken by their artisans Elle and Brittany as you’ll find candy, nuts, and other delectable toppings that make it almost too pretty to eat – ALMOST!

The next time you are near The Market Common, take time to stop in and sample this very unique delight on the Grand Strand. You’ll be glad you did!

You can find the Uncommon Chocolatier at 3351 Reed Street in the Market Common. Be sure to like and follow them on Facebook under “The Uncommon Chocolatier”.
