Happy New Year. Happy Valentine's Day!
I guess I just sort of slid through November-January without a blink. Things do get a bit hectic....
|Christmas Eve, 1 minute after we opened the doors. It was like a rock concert!|
In most recent chocolate holiday news, Valentine's Day is fast approaching. Amy and Brandy from our shop on Derby Street in Salem just had a fabulous time at Salem So Sweet, an annual event that has grown so very much since we first did it 15 years ago, really great to see it has become such an event!
Here in the salt mines in Gloucester, we're making things as sweet and foofy as possible, which for all my cranky exterior, I love love LOVE.
In the world of not-about-Valentine's Day, I'm excited that we have a couple of new turtles in dark chocolate. I really really like pistachios, always have. It's been hard to find a really great pistachio out there that is affordable, fresh and delicious, but at long last, we have. Say hey to our dark chocolate Pistachio Turtle, as well as our dark chocolate Cherry Pistachio Turtle. We just couldn't decide which one was better, so we made both. They are both selling equally as well, so there it is. So far only one person has asked about milk chocolate. What say you, Blog folk? Yes or No?
|I'll pretty much put hearts on anything. Oreos, for instance.|
I anxiously await some feedback on this. We are running out of space in our cases, making it necessary to use the limited space we have wisely.
For now, though, I'll be making Valentines. Lots of them. All sorts of shapes and colors. Come see us! If you come on Valentine's Day proper, I can guarantee you it will NOT be just men, and that we will be open an extra hour that night. See you in the Alley!
