I’m not ready for summer to end. I’m simply not. I know you’re shaking your head saying “it’s only August” but here in Vermont, we had a wave of cool 60’s and I can feel everything around me starting to cool down. Even sleeping with the window open is getting chilly. And now, it’s official. I just went to the website and Autumn chocolates
are up. As much as I love Fall in Vermont, it was still a shock to my system and I’m feeling a little melancholy. The only thing making it better is that the Hazelnut Praline Pumpkins
are now available.
If you’ve read this blog last Fall, you’ll remember I waxed poetic about them but since they weren’t available by mail order, I kept it very brief. But now they are available online and ready to be enjoyed by chocolate fans around the country so I won’t hold back. I simply love them. If you tried them, you would to.
First, I’ll tell you, they’re milk chocolate. Don’t rule them out if you’re a dark chocolate lover. This is truly just an enjoyable sweet confection. We’re not talking heart health or diet. We’re talking plain and simple craving something yummy and good. They are filled with this light hazelnut praline that has a subtle crispy crunch in it. It’s so delicate and light, you’ll know you’re treating yourself to something special.
Here’s the best part, in my opinion. They’re probably one of the cutest chocolates you’ll ever see. They come wrapped in this bright, rich orange foil and when you unwrap them, they’re this sweet little half round pumpkin. They’re just adorable. I love them and I love bringing them when I go visiting friends. Everywhere I’ve brought them people have totally fallen in love with them. I think if I were to get married in the Fall, I’d even have them at my wedding. They’re that good.
If you come to VT this Autumn, you can stop by our retail locations and give them a try but for those of you unable to get away, they’ll be online for a very limited time. They sell out completely every year in our stores so I don’t expect them to last long online.
