In life, one finds these small little shops, gems of a time gone by, specialty shops – the butcher, the bakery and the cheese shop. These gems are awesome, and unfortunately they are few and far between – big supermarkets are fast taking over the real estate, and making it difficult to find. There are many gems in Wellesley, Massachusetts – Wasik’s Cheese Shop.
Wasik’s Cheese Shop is a treat, right on RT135. You can find free parking during the holidays, and during the week you can pay the meter for some shopping time. If you plan to sneak in and out of Wasik’s good luck – put at least 30 minutes on the meter. Friday took 30 minutes in the store – long lines and lots of interest.
While the Cheese Shop is interesting, this blog isn’t about Cheese it’s about Ginger. Wasik’s has great gourmet products from around the World – Cheese, Goose, Cured Meats, Crackers, Chocolates, Candies. You know I can’t resist a delicacy when it has ginger.
Wasik’s shelves had a unique chocolate from jcoco chocolates – on dasher on ginger. It’s a nice dark chocolate with crisp and cruchy candied ginger in dark chocolate. It’s not too sweet – ginger or chocolate, and is nice to consume in small chunks of chocolate. I recommend going to Wasik’s for the experience of a gem, and I recommend the jcoco chocolates.
