A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_2157This post has been sitting in my drafts folder for some time now. I met up with my old intern and she brought me this cute little sampler pack from Cocoanuts (that’s how they first came onto my radar). Check out all the things inside below.

IMG_2159Taza, a local Somerville chocolate company, makes stone ground chocolate. Founder Alex Whitmore had his first bite of stone ground chocolate in Mexico and loved it so much he decided to open up a factory in Somerville. Taza maintains direct relationships with cacao farmers and pays a premium above the Fair Trade price for their cacao.

IMG_2160McCrea’s candy was founded by Jason McCrea, a man on mission to make the best caramel. The caramels come in a variety of different flavors: black lava sea salt, tapped maple, ginger fusion, dark roasted mocha, rosemary truffle sea salt, mad vanilla, deep chocolate caramel, highland scotch, basil cayenne, and cape cod saltworks. The caramels are all handmade in small batches with premium, all natural ingredients. They only use locally sourced cream, milk, and butter.

IMG_2161Tcho chocolate is based out of San Francisco, so not local, but it is some of the best chocolate around.

Sencha Naturals green tea mints are naturally sugar free. The Moroccan mint flavor has a clean crisp peppermint flavor. The company was founded by David Kerdoon, who developed the world’s first green tea mints. Green tea had long been limited to beverages, Kerdoon worked to infuse green tea into edibles, as many Asian merchants were doing.
