Everyone know Aglamesis is king when it comes to ice cream in Cincinnati (three words: French Quarter Bonanza). But Aglamesis is more than just an adorable local ice cream parlor; it’s also a confectionery, chocolatier, and, during the spring, a one-stop shop for all things Easter.
Did you know you can build your own Easter basket at Aglamesis?
You can — and this will surely save the Easter Bunny some time and work as the big day gets closer.
Aglamesis is just delightful this time of year. Right now, the whole store is decorated with pastels, bunny stuffed animals, baskets in every springtime hue — and candy. There are hand-molded chocolate bunnies and birds, jelly beans in every color in the rainbow, chocolate-dipped Peeps and large, intricately decorated filled eggs.
Aglamesis is known for its homemade chocolate; the confectioner’s best-seller at Easter are the filled cream eggs, which come wrapped in colorful foil and can be purchased in either dark or milk chocolate. (In fact, most everything at Aglamesis is available in milk or dark, which means you can really customize the perfect basket for each of your kids.) You’ll want to put both the Turtle and Opera Cream eggs in your basket, which are their best sellers.
Of course, no basket would be complete without a chocolate bunny; and Aglamesis has bunnies of all size, shape and variety — 17 sizes, to be specific. These guys are solid, high-quality chocolate — not the typical hollow numbers you’d find at the drugstore.
As Aglamesis is known for its epic French Quarter Bonanza, you know they’ll go above and beyond when it comes to amazing Easter treats. Their largest bunny weighs in at 7 pounds and is literally child-sized. If you’re looking for a beautiful, edible centerpiece for your Easter brunch — this is it!
Aglamesis is a Cincinnati institution, and it’s jus plain fun hand-picking your own Easter basket. As the big day approaches, I highly recommend heading to Aglamesis to pick out some special treats for your little bunnies. And if you’re a busy bunny, Aglamesis even offers pre-made baskets!
