Wedding Bars

Something that we've seen soar in popularity for weddings this season is the idea of setting out different candies into a delicious, colorful bon-bon buffet. Martha Stuart Weddings has blogged about Candy Bars, and we've been helping dozens of brides find the right type of candy, in the right colors and flavors, and we are even able to rent out some of our beautiful jars for the ocassion. This idea is a great way to spice up the look of a reception hall and, unlike flowers, you can be sure none of the leftover goodies will go to waste!

Why Wait For Fall?

Caramel Apples are back! The genius chocolatier behind our infamously delectable chocolate-dipped caramels (which we also just got back in stock) branched out into everyone's favorite excuse for a healthy snack, chocolate-dipped caramel covered apples!

They are Granny Smiths, and we've got them in white chocolate with cinnamon and sugar, milk chocolate and toffee, dark chocolate swirls, milk chocolate with white swirls, and a hybrid blend of milk and dark chocolate. In other words, something for absolutely every fan of crisp fruit and delicious chocolate!
