"Any top 10 Western Pa. chocolate maker list without Rosalind's is an absolute joke. They are, without a doubt, the best chocolate in the state. As far as I'm concerned there are three pre-eminent chocolate makers in Western Pa, Rosalind's, Sarris (which was included in our original list), and Anderson's ... anything else is second fiddle." — Frank Domenic Jr.

"I now purchase all my boxed chocolate from Philadelphia Candies in Hermitage, Pa, they have some of the best chocolate I have ever tasted and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg." — Merrell Reagan
Philadelphia Candies, Mercer County: philadelphiacandies.com
"You have made a major blunder with not listing Jameson Candy in New Castle/Neshanock — originally opened by Joe Jameson and now under the watchful eye of Betty Polen, Joe's daughter. The variety is extensive and every item sold is absolutely top shelf." — Michael Campbell
Jameson Candy, Lawrence County: jamesoncandy.com
"You have to add Sib's Sweet Shoppe in Youngwood. Dana and her staff are the best. You have to try a gourmet chocolate apple and fresh dipped strawberries and raspberries." — Larissa Clayton
