The chocolate here is the best I have ever tasted. The butter creams are to die for. The creamist I have ever had. Every time we'd go there I spend a lot. There prices are good and selection for Easte...r is amazing. All made in the factory there. They are only open about 6 months out of the year due to the heat in summer months. This is one of the reasons I am writing about them.
Last year Mayor Nutter tried to get the pay taxes on the months they were not open and of course the city did this right before Easter. Now they are at it again. The owner said he might have to close and we would be deprived of all the delicious chocolate they make. They are located on Venango Street in Kensington. I know the section isn't the greatest but you won't regret going there. Let the city go after half the people in Kensington who reneg on their taxes and leave this institution pay the taxes for the time they are actually open. Please share this on your Facebook page if you agree.

Use to live around the corner from Blasius and it's the best handmade chocolate I ever had. We go here every year for our Easter candy. Blasius is famous for their chocolate (with every variety from hollow to cream filled to covered in a variety of shapes and sizes) and the best selection of Peeps variety I've ever seen. It's Philadelphia's best kept secret that the locals are completely addicted to. See More

I'm 66 years old and my mom started going there since my brothers and I were kids. I still go there for our children and now, grandchildren. It's the best chocolate ever. Melts in your mouth!

Best candy anywhere. A piece of Philly history and culture! I recently visited Philly from Las Vegas. And while I was there one of the places I went to was Blasius. Only to find it...closed.
