Sweet Hope is now in session

You have two options…  You may click HERE and go buy NOW or you can read the following and then go buy.  Either way, you are buying candy.

Friday night we were driving home from dinner and I looked at Derek and said, “shit, I think the voting was set to close and I wasn’t at home to make sure my flavors made it into the top.”  He paused for a moment and then laughed.  The last few years I haven’t cared much about the flavors that I make.  I was very gung-ho about Key Lime last year and it ended up being my favorite.  This year… this year I cared.

When we got home the voting had, in fact, closed and I didn’t get my way.  I lamented about what to do since I hate to offend anyone, but the two flavors that I so desperately wanted to make were not in the final 4.  To top it off, one of my best customers and my biggest volunteer didn’t get their picks either (which happen to be my 2).  I needed to make a choice.  Do I offend those who help so so much or those who voted?  I elected to ruffle the feathers of the masses (or one person who has never commented here).

I do apologize to the person/people who did some major last minute voting.  But trust me, it’s worth it.

I dropped Mocha and Port in favor of Apricot-Sage and Madras Curry.  If that causes you not to order, I’m sorry to have lost your business.  However, I am the one who makes these and on occasion I do like to eat them.

So why am I so adamant about these two flavors?  They are nothing short of awesome.  Granted the curry is love it or hate it.  There is no middle ground here.  If you like curry you will love this truffle.  The Apricot-Sage, that one is just a little surprise.  Of all of the taste testers, only one said down right yuck.  The majority of them were surprised about how wonderfully good it is.  There will be tweaks in the final product to bring out the Apricot and tone down the Sage, but I assure you it will be good.

Here is the run down of the 2010 products:

1 dozen mixed truffles (2 of each flavor) – $15.00

1/2 dozen single variety truffles (choose from Plain Chocolate, Candy Cane, Apricot-Sage, Pomegranate, Honey or Madras Curry) – $8.50

2 dozen plain caramels – $12.00

1 dozen sea salt caramels – $7.50

2 caramel sea-salt truffles – $4.50

All the candies come in a 100% recycled material kraft brown box and closed with a blue ribbon.  All orders will ship on December 17th and ordering is open NOW through November 26th.

Now you will go buy.

    I will miss the port, but it’s okay. Jon loves the curry one. And the apricot sage was good too.

    Oh thank Gawd because those were my two faves in the taste testing and I also forgot to vote last minute. Whew! People, you must trust us on this. Those two flavors, apricot-sage and madras curry, are to DIE for!!!!
