All our toffees and brittles are made in small batches so when you see it buy it as it doesn't hang around for very long.  Here is a photo of our Campfire toffee from yesterday, it too sold out.  Bet it was all those marshmallows and hickory smoked salt on top!  Definitely smelt like a campfire.

Beat the heat

To beat this heat, we created these ice pops using grapefruit (juice and skin) fresh lime juice, sugar, water, a fresh hop and Touche IPA from Double Barley Brewing in Smithfield.  They are very refreshing with the grapefruit and lime juice and then you get the bitter taste from the IPA.   The green hop (not shown in this photo) adds a fun decoration to this pop.   Perfect for this hot weather.

If you would like one, they are available at Double Barley Brewery while supplies last.

It is hard to keep a blog, Facebook, Twitter (@gerdantweetz) and Instagram up to date everyday.  If you are interested in what we are up to….. check our Instagram account as it is the easiest one for me to update on a regular basis. That being said, I will continue to update this blog, just not as frequently.

Keep on trufflin'

Stay Cool

Thank goodness we no longer do the Farmers' Markets anymore as it would be some chore trying to keep chocolates cool in this weather.

Enough of that, we will be in "Durm" this weekend.  Saturday we will be at Bull City Ciderworks to celebrate their 1st Anniversary.  There is lots going on all next week, so come on out and join in the celebrations.
We will have Brew Chews made with 3 of their ciders, a brigadeiro and possets made with cider too.
A posset is a lovely light mousse like filling that we put into our chocolate cups.  Posset is actually a medieval beverage made from hot milk and ale or cider.  We hope to have a Rhiz up, Steep South and a strawberry cider too.  It also happens to be Father's Day on Sunday so Brew Chews or Posset cups would make a great gift for Dad.
Hope to see you there Saturday.

End your work week at BottleRev RDU

Today Dan will be at BottleRev RDU doing a chocolate beer pairing.  Actually it will be chocolate and candy pairing.  He will have various Brew Chews made with different beers and some truffles and of course the latest offering, a posset cup.  This posset cup was made with Yeti chocolate stout and cream.

If that doesn't pique your interest, then how about a Brigadeiro made with Limoncello IPA? 

There will also be Brew Chews - Suit & Thai made with coconut and chillies and a sour IPA which we added Lime and Grapefruit to make it sour.

Hope to see your there.

~ Rubaeus/Black Chocolate - This is a 'double decker" brew chew with Rubaeus - a Raspberry Ale from Founders on top and Black Chocolate Stout from Brooklyn Brewery on the bottom.
