Last year, craft cider was making a name for itself in Vermont. We picked up a bottle of Citizen Cider Unified Press and after a few sips found ourselves wondering how we could incorporate that delicious apple flavor into our caramels. The answer was to boil down apple pressings from Happy Valley Orchard, where Citizen Cider get their apples, and create our own apple syrup. We blended this delicious syrup with our slow-cooked caramel and added a splash of cider then coated it all in 34% milk chocolate. That is how this wonderful partnership began and these caramels came to life.

With one bite you'll be reminded of a chocoalte caramel covered apple, only better! These Apple Cider Caramels are available in our three retail stores and online now. 

Because our apple syrup is only produced two times a year these caramels are in limited supply and high demand. Don’t miss your chance to taste a unique Vermont chocolate!


 

Although the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival ended a few weeks ago, we are still reminiscing on all the fun times we had with our partners at Long Trail! Our limited edition BeBop Hop Bar, created to raise funds for the FlynnArts “LCC Youth in Jazz Scholarship,” was an incredible success!

Festival goers, hop fanatics, and chocolate lovers purchased 1,695 bars, which raised over $4,300 towards the scholarship fund. Our goal was to beat our record from last year’s Boom Bam Bourbon Pecan Bar sales and…we did!  We raised last year’s number by 349 bars, which will help create even more opportunities in performing arts education for young musicians in Vermont. 

We had so much fun creating the BeBop Hop Bar and are already looking forward to next year. Any ideas for an encore chocolate bar that reflects the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival?  Send them our way!
