Happy Halloween from The Confectionery

Several of the Candy Girls dressed up for the University Village's Merchant Halloween Contest.  They were jungle cats with a zoo keeper. Our candy boy was a NBA fan! We are ready to pass out candy to the Trick or Treater's.

Happy Halloween - It's our Favorite Day of the year.

Chocolate in Cuba!

A Candy Girl's father was recently in Havana, Cuba and came across a Chocolate Museum. Knowing how much we love chocolate and enjoy seeing different shops around the world, he took some photos and wrote about his experience for us. Hugh loves chocolate as well and is especially fond of our Dark Chocolate Espresso Malt balls.

You wouldn’t necessarily expect to see a Museum of Chocolate in Havana, capital of the (socialist) Republic of Cuba. But even socialists like chocolate! Right in the center of the Old Townis this tidy and very popular chocolate center with descriptions of beans, processing, chocolate-making, and (of course) lots of yummy eats. I visited it the week of October 17 while in Havana for a conference of lawyers, law professors and judges.    - Hugh Spitzer
