Community Supported Chocolate
By this time, most of us are familiar with Community Supported Agriculture setups—commonly dubbed CSA’s—that deliver weekly boxes of seasonal produce in return for a pre-season payment, and now, one local chocolatier is taking inspiration from the farmer’s handbook.
Alma Chocolate's Sarah Hart is launching a monthly chocolate subscription out of her NE 28th sweet shop, allowing chocoholics to sign up for eleven chocolate deliveries (skipping the too-hot month of August) straight to their homes or offices.
Each month, members receive a different sweet selection, like salty nutty toffee, ten-piece bon bon samplers, caramel assortments, or a peanut butter box loaded with Thai peanut bons bons and salted nut butter chocolates.
For a limited time, subscriptions will be available via the Alma Chocolate website on a buy-one-get-one-half-off basis, meaning a monthly delivery of sweets to you and someone you really, really like.
