A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while operating a Segway. Walk or roll into candyland in style with today’s deal: for $6, you get $12 worth of fudge, candies, ice cream, and more from Turtles, located in Old Sacramento.
Press your nose against the glass and try not to leave tongue prints as you browse gourmet chocolate creations ($20 per lb.) in all shapes, sizes, and combinations. Turtles hosts hunks of homemade fudgical bliss ($12 per lb.) that could please any pleasant sweet tooth or dark-side devourer, along with a wide selection of retro sweets and sugar-free candy ($22 per lb.). Load up on treats and dumptruck them onto an iceberg of Dreyer’s ice cream ($2.50 and up) titanic enough to sink any ocean liner.
Humble in floor space and ample in sweets, Turtles has the feel of an oversized candy cupboard inhabited by friendly staffers instead of miniaturized cowboys and Indians. With plenty of homemade sweets and a bounty of gift ideas, the shop meets the demands of a celebratory summer filled with graduations, weddings, and occasional bursts of unwarranted snackery.
