When they're examining teeth, the trio of dentists at Premiere Dental Care Center aren't just thinking about the mouth?they're thinking about the rest of the patient, too. That's because they recognize the relationship between oral health and the body. During consultations, they explain how stress can cause cavities, plaque can lead to heart problems, and loose lips can sink ships. Then they meticulously examine teeth in search of decay and other ailments, taking into account activities that can impede oral health, such as smoking.
The aroma of slow-simmering caramel and chocolate wafts through Hoffman’s Chocolate’s Greenacres headquarters. To demystify its origins, the shop’s chocolatiers have outfitted their kitchen with observation windows, granting customers the chance to admire their delicate handiwork and holiday helper subcontractors. They meticulously lace European truffles with chocolate drizzles, and dunk cherries and pretzels in milk and dark chocolate. This devotion to small batches of handmade treats extends back to the 1970s, when founder Paul Hoffman began peddling treats out of his small Lake Worth chocolate shop. Over the decades, chocolatiers have expanded the bakery’s repertoire to include whimsical confections such as enormous fortune cookies and seasonal treats.
The bowl of sweets in grandma's house. Late nights sifting through Halloween hauls. A Valentine's Day surprise. Sometimes, a simple piece of candy can conjure up a flood of memories. For Bulk Candy Store’s customers, they have their pick of edible nostalgia from the family-owned confectionery’s vast supply of treats. The store’s retro candies take the form of Charms Blow Pops, Mary Jane taffies, and old-time licorice to transport sweet teeth to the past more effectively than a Tootsie Roll–shaped time machine. The dessert emporium has dedicated sections of its gargantuan stock for kosher and sugar-free candies, and they can also help customers search for candy by shape.
