Sweeten Up Your Days With Specialty Chocolate
Writer / Abby Renz
When holidays such as Valentine’s day, Christmas and others have ended, many people will flock towards their nearest store for discounted candy, but end up eating subpar chocolates that don’t quite deliver.
Surprise your loved ones or treat yourself with our selection of artisan chocolates such as Lake Champlain Almonds and Sea Salt, with 72% dark cocoa, for a dose of salty-sweet, or Raspberries and Dark Chocolate, with 57% cocoa, for a burst of flavor. Perhaps you want to venture into nature’s wonders with the exquisite tastes of Chocolates of Vermont. Enjoy their signature flavors such as the copper-wrapped Maple Crunch, a rich dark chocolate with Vermont maple syrup-infused butter. Try my personal favorite, a chocolate that is oval shaped in gold wrapping – the Evergreen Mint with a peppermint crunch covered in dark chocolate. Get your tastebuds ready for a trail with the Green Mountain milk chocolate, with almonds and currants, appropriately wrapped and shaped as a mountain. Even bees can’t resist their Honey Caramel dark chocolate infused with local honey, in a gold tinfoil wrapper.
If you are really feeling adventurous, try B.T. McElrath’s assortment of chocolate bites, such as dark chocolate caramel, prairie dog, salty dog, 70% dark chocolate, buttered toast, or salted butter caramel.
We all know that chocolate is a delicious treat that we can eat any time of day and it can instantly brighten a sour mood, but did you know that eating chocolate can actually make your brain feel happy?
Research shows that eating chocolate can produce happiness and joy. Chocolate contains phenylethylamine, a natural antidepressant, and tryptophan, an amino acid linked to the production of serotonin.
If are not a chocolate lover, we also have other delectable treats at New Kitchen Store such as Annie B’s popcorns in flavors such as Sea Salt Caramel, Jalapeño Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar and Original Caramel – and the small caramel pieces to nibble on for the road. All are made as small-batch confections to enhance flavor and quality. We also carry the memorable MoonPie treats in flavors like chocolate, banana, strawberry and salted caramel.
Whether you are restocking on our flavored coffees, trying out a recipe with our fragrant spices or finding the perfect item for your kitchen, here at New Kitchen Store we can help take holidays, and every day, from ordinary to extraordinary. We are ready to assist you with a warm smile and an inviting atmosphere.
