Still looking for the perfect gift for the sweet-tooth in your life? One of my favorite stocking stuffers ever is Taza Chocolate! Back when we used to get Boston Organics delivered in the city, you could do a Taza chocolate add-on service- so great! They are definitely one of my husband’s favorite things so I am planning on stocking up on a bunch to give to him (hope you are not reading this dear- haha!)
I received an e-mail from one of the Taza Chocolate employees letting me know about three upcoming holiday events they are hosting at their factory store in Somerville, MA. If you live in the Boston area, you have to check out this factory. I went a couple years ago to pick up T’s birth announcements from Albertine Press, which is in the same building as Taza. Let me tell you, the entire building smells heavenly! If you don’t live in Boston, I have something for you as well. I am hosting a Taza Chocolate Mexicana Sampler giveaway- go to the bottom of this post to enter!
Come meet Liz Gutman and Jen King, the brilliant candy-crafters of Liddabit Sweets! Pick up an autographed copy of their brand new book, The Liddabit Sweets Candy Cookbook, and sample & buy their Taza Chocolate sea salt caramels and other delectable creations. Facebook invitation here.
