Back in March 2009, Portland Phoenix food writer Brian Duff told you about the wonders of Dean's Sweets. A couple months later, we declared the truffle-only Middle Street chocolatier's "The Best Totally-Legal, All-Ages Drug Dealer."
And now, 18 months later, the world has gotten around to noticing what we - and you, savvy Phoenix readers - have known all along. Dean's Sweets is kick-ass chocolate.
Mainebiz is reporting that Dean's Sweets just won a couple of national awards. Congrats to them! Now it's up to the locals to beat the rush.
