Holidays are over and summer is still a long way off—it can be hard to find something to get excited about in late January (unless you are a skier and it’s dumping snow, then that is pretty darn exciting).
Well, our Factory Store at 750 Pine St, Burlington, has a few things going on that might get you off the couch.
First, we’re having a winter sale, starting Friday, January 18 through Sunday, January 27! Featuring our gourmet hot chocolate, Five Star Bars, and our handmade truffles, it’s a great time to stock up on your favorites or buy some early Valentine’s Day chocolates (as long as you don’t eat them before the big day!) We’ll have lots of samples out for you to try too!
Second, we’re hosting two, free, (yes, FREE) chocolate tastings on Saturday, January 26.
At 1:00pm and 3:00pm, you can taste chocolate with an expert who will walk you through how chocolate is made, the differences between chocolate, desirable qualities of chocolate and the six steps to tasting chocolate. Attendees will sample our famous Five Star Bars (did we mention they will also be on sale?) and learn how to evaluate them. There is no need to register for either session but seating is limited so it is recommended to arrive early.
Soon you’ll impress your friends and family by describing the flavor notes of chocolate as sour, spicy, earthy or fruity. And showing off your bounty of chocolate you picked up at some great prices.
That seems pretty good for the end of January to me.
