All of the chocolates are produced by hand, and have no preservatives or stabilizers. I was especially intrigued by the antique molds that they use to make some of the candies. Just gazing into the candy case is a treat as these chocolates are truly works of art.
But what good is chocolate if you're just looking at it, right? I sampled a piece of rosemary dark chocolate and it was divine. The rich dark chocolate with just a subtle touch of rosemary made me very happy. I also sampled a piece of the Savannah, which is dark chocolate infused with vodka, cayenne pepper, white pepper, and hot Hungarian pepper. It's really lovely topped with a little piece of chili mango and has quite a kick. Steven, who was working in the store that day, told me that Paula Deen's sons had been in and taken some of the Savannah chocolates back to Paula and she loved them. How could she not? Some of the other flavor choices for truffles include bourbon-vanilla, citrona, and kaffir lime.
And in case your were wondering, the word "Wen" comes from an ancient Egyptian word meaning "to exist." If you find yourself in downtown Denver, walk over to Platte Street and indulge your senses.
