We're talking candy here, not the fancy-schmancy Armagnac-infused varietal truffles that make chocoholism such a pricey proposition around these parts. Despite its Italianate moniker, Z Cioccolato is a repository of the kind of all-American sweet stuff you used to get trick-or-treating or at the five-and-dime: Necco wafers, horehound drops, saltwater taffy, candied oranges, root beer barrels, butterscotch balls, gumdrops, Walnettos, licorice in every configuration. The stuff's displayed in big open barrels, so grab a basket and choose whatever your sweet tooth desires (sampling is encouraged). Perugina, Lindt, and Ghirardelli bars are available for the cognoscenti, and 20 varieties of fudge -- fudge with walnuts, fudge with peanut butter, fudge with chopped-up Snickers bars, fudge sprinkled with M&M's -- are sold in slabs from behind the counter. And yeah, there are pricey house-made truffles for sale, too. (They're really good.)
