An Association of Chocolate Fanatics like Us!

Posted on February 3, 2010 2:59 PM by Meghan

Recently we joined the Fine Chocolate Industry Association (FCIA), the professional non-profit organization supporting the development and innovation of the fine chocolate industry and best practices.

And the other week, while at the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, we got to attend their semi-annual meeting and meet lots of chocolate fanatics just like us!
 
It was inspiring to meet and network with others as passionate about chocolate and confections as we are!    Our friends from TCHO were there as well as knowledgeable retailers who feature Lake Champlain Chocolates like Bittersweet Café (San Francisco) and Chocolopolis (Seattle).

Of course, in addition to networking, there was plenty of CHOCOLATE!    I sampled a delicious Meyer Lemon Buttercream and some dark chocolate made from bean to bar at the source in Madagascar, full-flavored and intense with fruity notes and hints of sour cherry.

It is great to be a part of a group, not out to change the chocolate industry – but focused on celebrating our small segment of it by offering another level of support specifically focused on the best practices in fine chocolate making.   To learn more, visit  http://www.finechocolateindustry.org/.


See you at the Fancy Food Show

The Summer Fancy Food Show is happening this weekend, June 28th-30th at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.  For those of you not familiar with the Fancy Food Show, it's the largest specialty food and beverage marketplace in North America.  With anywhere from 16,000-24,000 people in attendance checking out over 250,000 products from 81 different countries, it's kind of a big deal!  Everyone from retailers to restaurant owners to food distributors to the press will be there tasting & learning about different foods including confections, cheeses, coffee, spices, and much, much more.

If you're planning on attending the Fancy Food Show, be sure to visit Lake Champlain Chocolates at Booth #1650.  Not only will we be unveiling our new Chocolates of Vermont packaging, but we'll be sampling our new Five Star Bar as well!  What's the new flavor you ask?  Sorry, I won't give away the surprise just yet.  But I will give you one small hint...3 out of the 4 current Five Star Bars are made of milk chocolate, so we felt like we needed to even out the playing a field just a little bit.  Okay, I can't resist, how about two hints.  Some might also consider this new bar both healthy and indulgent.

Hope to see you at the Fancy Food Show!
