Brew Chews

Chocolates and Brew Chews…… we had them both and these tasty bites were made with Wicked Weed beers

For those who like things a little hotter, we made a brew chew with Freak of Nature and added JalapeƱos.  Nothing like a hoppy hot confection.

Great day

Great day yesterday at BottleMixx for the Wicked Weed tap takeover.  A few of our chocolates had the same ingredients as two of their beers and so were a big hit among both chocolate and beer lovers.

 This chocolate had dates and fresh blackberries and wine added to the ganache.

While our other truffle had tamarind and orange ganache.  

Both chocolates went remarkably well with the beers…….  a very enjoyable pairing.

Our next venue will be at Midtown Farmers Market on Sept 6.

Ready, set, go……….

We're ready for the Farmer's market tomorrow.  We have brought back an old favorite that we haven't had for some time - Fleur de Sel caramels dipped in both dark and milk chocolate.

Our Seasonal Brew Chew tomorrow is Watermelon Wheat and we added fresh watermelon juice ourselves to enhance the flavor.

We will of course have our crowd favorites - Bourbon Pecan Chocolate and Pistachio Brigadeiro.  Come see us at Midtown Farmers Market in the morning.  Weather is meant to be nice.

Glad to be out of the heat

Another Market day over and boy was it a hot one.  It was down right hot, sweltering at the market today.  Unfortunately with those high temperatures we cannot put any chocolates out on display which is a bummer but on  the good side, we did have a lot of sales.

Anyway just to let you know that out next appearance will be at Midtown Farmers Market on Saturday June 12.

Just to keep your mouth watering until the next market.

We'll have brew chews of course and some fun summer flavored truffles and brigadieros.  So stay  posted.  See you next Wednesday.

When and where will we be next

As we are only doing Farmers Markets once a month this year, our next Market will be the Raleigh Downtown Farmers Market on July 2.  That is a Wednesday market and it runs from 10:00 am to 2:00pm on Fayetteville Street downtown Raleigh.

Our next appearance at Midtown Farmers Market will be on Saturday July12.

Sadly Kevin our nephew will no longer be with us at the Markets as he has decided to return to Utah.
You can see him one last time at the RAW artist.  He will be one of the artists on exhibit at the Lincoln Theatre, downtown Raleigh on June 26.
