Monday (September 1st) is Labor Day. Like many of you, we will take some time to be with our family and prepare ourselves for another busy season of working hard at what we love to do. In the event that you are looking for a special treat to bring on vacation or just need something to snack on while you drive up north, Detroit Chocolat will be open Thursday 11-7, Friday 11-8, and Saturday 11-4. And yes, that is what Michigan would look like…if it were made of chocolate chips.
Three pack Cornerless Chocolat Bars and Cupsters in 5 oz bags are now available at Detroit Chocolat and a few of our favorite places around town (Vince and Joe’s Fruit Market and Michigan By The Bottle). For those of you unable to visit us in person, stay tuned for an update to our website featuring some of your DC favorites.
** UPDATE ** The Web Store changes are just about finished up – check out all the new items on line by clicking on the products links for Cornerless Chocolat Bars, Cupsters, or Boxed Chocolat above.
The fine folks over at The Popped Kernel delivered another order of fresh gourmet popcorn this week and we are excited to announce two new flavors – Sea Salt Caramel & Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel. Along with some updated packaging, our favorite caramel corn just got a little more irresistible.
We already know the answer to that question, so don’t bother emailing to let us know. Just come on over to DC this week and pick up some awesome treats for Mom before its too late (Mother’s Day is this Sunday). We highly recommend the chocolate covered strawberries – available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday ONLY.
As you know, there are no bad days in a chocolate store and today was no different. In addition to rolling out a whole bunch of new Easter items this year, we also have some old favorites available – Foiled Chocolate Eggs, Spice Jelly Beans, and Fruit Jelly Beans. Easter at Detroit Chocolat just got a little more delicious today!
Easter is still a few weeks away (April 20th), but its never to early to spring into action and pick up some treats at Detroit Chocolat. So don’t let the cold temps, potholes, and slowly melting snow piles get you down, eating a little chocolate is sure to make you feel a little better.
Our Easter treats will continue to multiply in the weeks ahead…in case you want to “hop” in more than once.
Like many of you, we are huge fans of salty, crunchy, and sweet combinations. Pictured below is a handful of our milk chocolate covered sea salt peanuts. We would be happy to give you a sample, but consider yourself warned…they are very addicting.
It never hurts to do a little research, taste testing, and product development and at Detroit Chocolat we are all about trying something new. We made the trip out to San Francisco this year for the Winter Fancy Food Show and hope to bring back some fresh ideas and flavors to DC for this year. Keep checking back to see what we come up with in the weeks ahead – going to be a very delicious year.
At Detroit Chocolat, we are always “keeping it real”…as in really delicious and really local. Pictured above is another batch of our famous Motor City Peanut Briddle, made with locally grown and supplied ingredients. Stop in and pick up a bag of Briddle, a “Detroiter” Assortment box, or a delicious treat from our collection of Michigan’s finest confectioners and food producers such as Dave’s Sweet Tooth, Kelly’s Karamels, Germack Pistachio Company, The Popped Kernel Popcorn Company, Great Lakes Coffee Roasters, Better Made Snacks, Cherry Republic, and Koeze Peanut Butter…your friends and family will thank you for “shopping local first” this Christmas.
Just in time for the holiday season, here is the new and improved version of our “Detroiter” box! We are proud to say that the city of Detroit now has its own box of chocolate to enjoy…you almost have to wonder what took so long? The box comes in two different versions containing 8 ounces (16 pieces) of chocolate. You can get your very own “Detroiter” with or without a 4″ x 4″ Pewabic Old Detroit Tile. Thanks again to the creative staff at Pewabic Tile Detroit for doing the artwork for the lid and working with us every step of the way.
