What's the name of that Food Network show? The Best Thing I Ever Ate? That's an impossible question to answer, but if pressed I might say the bourbon balls from Old Louisville Candy Company -- no offense Momo. (First learned about them here.) As of a few days ago, the small company was still taking holiday orders so I was able to purchase the last gift on my list. And as soon as I removed the mailing box the faint smell of bourbon filled the air.
If you are in the Atlanta area and looking for a reasonably priced treat, don't forget McEntyre's cheese straws. This bakery is out in Smyrna, Julia Roberts old stomping ground, but worth the trip. The cheese straws rank up there with the bourbon balls and cost $5.76 for a package of three dozen. For an option intown, visit Rhodes Bakery.
