I am ready to get this chocolate factory on the road. ?I am still floating from last year’s high and figure that with all of this energy I can put it into making Sweet Hope bigger and better than before.
If you didn’t?know we’ve created a Facebook page for Sweet Hope. ?Become a fan if you haven’t already. ?You can also volunteer to be a chocolate “sales person“. ?Email me for more information or to volunteer.
I got to thinking about the timing for a few things. ?Currently I have the flavor suggestion week scheduled for October 28th. ?I realized there was going to be a problem with that. ?Often times people suggest flavors that I’ve never made before. ?It takes me a little time and research to figure out if I can actually make a flavor or not. ?If I have everyone suggest flavors that only gives me 3 days to figure out if I can make them or not. ?That isn’t enough time. ?Therefore I’m moving the primary up to TODAY.
Here’s how this works. ? Leave a comment to cast a ballot for a flavor you would like to see as a Sweet Hope Truffle.? Unlike normal elections you will have the opportunity to vote more than once.? Leave a separate comment for each flavor and you may vote for a flavor that another person has proposed.? The top 8 flavors will make it into the final ballot and from there the top 6 will be made*.
As a recap here is the list of flavors we’ve done in the past:
Candy Cane (we always do Candy Cane so don’t vote for that one)
White Russian (these involved white chocolate and I will not do them again)
Also, please note that we automatically do Candy Cane and one plain chocolate variety. ?It will either be Milk or Dark Chocolate. ?We will do a separate poll in November to determine milk or dark.
*Although this may appear to be a democratic process please keep in mind that I will have to make the truffles and therefore will actually become a dictatorship if any chocolate involving meat or meat-like produce is proclaimed a winner.? You can try, but don?t think for a moment that I would willingly touch raw bacon.
