Getting Ready for Easter....

Posted by Alison Russo in chocolate, chocolate bunnies, easter

Easter is the busiest time of year for most chocolate shops, and we're no exception!

It takes a lot of man hours and even more chocolate to make sure our shelves are filled with your favorite candy.

Here are some fun facts about getting ready for Easter 2017 at the shop:

This year, we made more than 2,000 of our hollow milk and dark chocolate bunnies.

We produced another 1,000 chocolate hollow shapes.

Over 2,000 chocolate suckers have been made.

Our chocolate bunnies range in size from 2 oz. to more than 10 lbs.

The biggest bunny we make (over 36" tall and more than 10 lbs) takes three people to fill.

“To all of the blessed ones who have donated this season: I just want to tell you how much I appreciate what you have done for my children. I now have the ability to see my children wake up on Christmas morning and be so happy. I thank you truly; you have absolutely no idea how blessed you have made me. I hope all of your holidays are surrounded by your families and those who fill your hearts with love, as you have filled mine. Again, I really appreciate you and thank you for all you have done for me this year. Thank you.”

“I just want to say what a pleasant surprise and experience it was to be given such a gracious opportunity at a time in my life when it was very much needed. Words cannot truly express my gratitude. Truly heartwarming! My counselor is wonderful and kind. Thank you to all of those who donate and are involved in the process of giving, sharing, and caring. It means so much to me.” 

“I want to thank you so much for all you have given. Haven House has helped me grow in such a positive way. My counselors have helped me overcome the hardest moment in my life, and I have learned how to become a better mother and I have learned what not to accept in a relationship. I promise to always remain a success story! Thank you for giving my family such a great Christmas, and a new start."

Sponge Candy Season Resumes on Monday!

Posted by Alison Russo in chocolate, community, news, sponge candy

Despite a late start due to hot and humid weather, sponge candy returns to the shelves Monday!

We've been working long hours to battle the mugginess, and get sponge candy ready for opening day on September 12.

This is the second year we’ve dealt with unfavorable weather for the candy-making process. Moisture in the air makes it difficult to get the sponge to a light and crisp consistency. In order to ensure the highest quality sponge, we have to wait until September to begin making Buffalo’s favorite candy.

You'll also see some of your other favorites back in stock, like our truffles, creams, and chocolate covered pretzels.

New for this season are vegan dark chocolate buffaloes using dairy-free chocolate, to meet the growing demand for vegan offerings.

The shop will re-open to full hours on September 12. And for those sponge candy enthusiasts who can’t wait, pick up your candy a day early, at the South Buffalo Farmer’s Market on September 11. 

Please join us for opening week!
