Food Porn: Yia Yia’s Chocolates

This is going to be a weird Food Porn.  I’ve actually never stepped foot into Depew’s Yia Yia’s Chocolates, in fact I don’t even know if this is a sweets store or restaurant with some seating.  All I know for sure is their Chocolate Peanut Butter Sponge Candy is the best Sponge Candy I have ever had in my entire life.  It all started when my roommate Jay came home with a large box that was a Valentine’s Day gift from his Mom.  Since he’s currently embarking on a crazy diet that bans any foods that contain glutens, it was up to me to eat the remainder of the box.  I enjoy the occasional sponge candy and I was convinced that Antoinette’s in West Seneca made the best, well after my first bite of Yia Yia’s I realized I had it all wrong.

So what makes their Sponge Candy so delicious? For one, I’ve never had Chocolate Peanut Butter covered Sponge Candy.  Normally, it’s the regular Milk Chocolate and rarely is it as creamy and delicious as this chocolate.  Often it’s a hard chocolate shell with a big crunch when you bite in.  I don’t know how long this chocolate was laying out for but each piece was incredibly creamy, and the peanut butter was perfectly mixed in (you can see the peanut butter swirls in the picture above).  Even Alli, who is definitely more of a Sponge Candy connoisseur then myself, admits that this is hands down the creamiest chocolate shes ever had.  Not only was the chocolate covering the pieces great, but the sponge filling on the inside was soft and airy.   Really, it was perfect and with the added twist of peanut butter (which wasn’t overwhelming at all), I couldn’t stop eating them.

If anyone knows anything about this place, like if it’s even an actual restaurant with seating, please comment below.  I plan on making my own trip very soon and trying out more of their chocolates.

    Yia Yia’s is one of those secrets tucked away on bustling Transit Rd. Just like you said Don, their Chocolate PB Sponge Candy is amazing. Hands down their best confection, IMO. Their chocolate PB cups are not like Reeses, but just a cup of the same chocolate they coat the sponge candy with. My 7 year old niece LOVES the dark chocolate.

    Absolutely delicious peanut butter sponge candy. It’s not an actual sit down place, just a candy store. The last time I was there they were preparing for Easter and had shelves of chocolate bunnies, eggs, etc. They will even ship things to you. I live in FL now and they said they could send me stuff here at least during the winter months since it is chocolate after all. I wouldn’t want that fantastic stuff to melt!

    So I hear you like my uncle Clifford Schultz’s chocolate. Have you tasted all of his choclates? They are delicious.
