Durci is a craft chocolate maker located at the base of the Wasatch Range in Utah. The very first time I had their chocolate was at the NW Chocolate Festival in Nov. 2016. So I was standing there talking with Sharon Terenzi, The Chocolate Journalist, and she asked if I had tried Durci before. Since I hadn’t she grabbed my arm, and quickly got me from one end of the place to the other to Durci’s table. I may have bumped into a few people on the way. Sorry! Lol!
