Chocolate for a Cause!! The “Pink Box”

Chocolate for a Cause!!  The “Pink Box”
Welcome to October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I do believe we are all affected by breast cancer in one way or another. We all know someone that has fought the fight. An amazing business group of women that I belong to called “Upstate Professional Women” meets at the Hope Club in Latham every Thursday. We are a local group of small business owners that are there for a community of support as we are .

Maybe I should say, I would like Spring to Come!!!  Here in upstate NY we are still dealing with a few feet of snow in our yard, kids are still sledding and winter hats, gloves and boots fill our mud room.  I know other parts of the country are in the full swing of spring and jealousy has set in.  Now  our Berrylicious Chocolate Kitchen is another story.  Spring sprinkle colors, chocolate covered peeps .

Berrylicious Bouquets FREE gift!
Berrylicious Bouquets has been closed for the last 2 weeks for a much needed vacation.  We have traveled through England, France, Switzerland and even made a pit stop in Italy for a few hours to take photo’s of the Alps and eat pizza.  We had a fantastic 2.5 weeks.   I sought out chocolate in every part of the world we visited and it was great to see how different cultures deal with the decadent treat.  .

Chocolate in Switzerland
Berrylicious is closed until March 5th for a vey good reason. We are traveling in Europe for a couple of weeks. We are spending most of our time in England, but we spent the last couple of days in Switzerland and France. While there were many sites to see, I took time to check out the chocolate shops in Switzerland. I lived in Switzerland for a couple of years and can honestly say the .

Bitter “Sweet” Day

Today was Valentine’s Day. A day that as a owner of a chocolate dipping business is exciting. Exciting, like you are getting ready for a HUGE party and you are the host! You have to be a party planner, dipper, organizer, employer, cheerleader (mostly cheering yourself on) and keep all the books. It is a day that you work up to for weeks and then it is over:( Kind of a let down after .

Ideas for Edible Bouquets and Goodies

Ideas for Edible Bouquets and Goodies
Chocolate, the quintessential comfort food. An edible bouquet of chocolate covered strawberries is appropriate for any occasion. From Thank You to I’m sorry, from congratulations to I love you. Anything covered in chocolate is better. That’s why Berrylicious Bouquets started the “goodie line“. A box of chocolate covered pretzels, oreos, peanut brittle or even our covered apples will brighten someones day and let them know you are thinking about them. Wouldn’t a edible bouquet .
