Farmer’s Market Chitchat

Posted on July 28, 2015 by Linda Johnson | 0 Comments

photo-39Lots of discussion and conversation swirls around our booth at the Farmer’s Market each weekend. The most popular topics however seem to veer towards three main themes. White Chocolate, Chocolate Pairings and The Art of Tasting Chocolate. Since a lot of our readers live too far to make it out to our Farmer’s Market weekends, we thought we’d bring the conversation to you! For the next couple of weeks we’ll be writing Farmer’s Market Chitchat. So what do we talk about around the Chocology stand each week? Well, read on to join our Farmer’s Market chitchat!

White Chocolate and Tastings

tastingEvery weekend Chocology offers a tasting of our mouthwatering Fat Ass Fudge to the public at our Farmer’s Markets. Inevitably each week, when we offer our White Chocolate we get at least one, “Eww. . .I don’t like white chocolate!”

With some coaxing and cajoling however, many times we can convince them that Chocology Couverture pure white chocolate isn’t your ordinary white chocolate. Often times, after our customers taste our white chocolate they’re in line the next week with white chocolate at the top of their shopping list.

All white chocolate contains at least twenty percent cocoa butter—our contains 28% cocoa butter. Other ingredients might include sugar, milk and vanilla. Since white chocolate does not contain chocolate paste or cocoa liquor, it isn’t considered a chocolate product. White chocolate can vary greatly depending on the chocolate (Compound vs. Couverture) and ingredients used and the methods with which they are prepared.

Since we use more cocoa butter and less sugar, our white chocolate isn’t as sweet as your typical run of the mill white chocolate, making it smooth and creamy with just the right amount of sweetness. Our mixing and tempering practices enhance the flavor and texture of our white chocolate making even the most finicky chocolate connoisseur fall in love at first bite.

Our White Chocolate Fudge Comments

“Wow! This tastes super amazing, it’s so creamy and not too sweet.”

“I’ve never been a fan of white chocolate, but I”m starting to think differently, thank you for the tasting!”

“This is VERY good and it tastes incredible. Hands down the best white chocolate I’ve ever had.”

Our Farmer’s Markets are great fun and so informal. Conversations abound as people gather around to taste, pair and join in the chocolate extravaganza! Do you like white chocolate? Have you tried Chocology White Fudge? We invite you to join the conversation via the comments section, Facebook or Twitter.

On Sunday, November 2,  Chocology had the honor of participating in the Long Island Chocolate Festival and what a day it was! People young and old came out to taste, look at and experience chocolate at it’s finest. We got to meet lots of people and give samples of our great chocolate, including our new product, Fat Ass Fudge. The event coincided with the announcement of our newly acquired company, Fat Ass Fudge. We had the opportunity to hand out samples of our new fudge and it wasn’t long until there was a sea of people standing in line to buy it.  We were pleased to hear, “This is the best fudge I’ve ever had,” many times throughout the event. Fat Ass Fudge, made with organic goat’s milk and butter, was a hit.  We pretty much sold out by the end of the festival. We also sold our new test product, Espresso Ganache Truffles. The truffles were meant to be samples, in an effort to discover if they would be popular enough to sell. When participants began to ask if they could buy a box to take home though, we shifted gears and put it up for sale at the event. Several people left with a box of the Espresso Ganache Truffles before we even officially have it on the market! Our testing efforts seem to be a success. We sold out. Madeline truly got a chance to shine with her doggy treats. She worked hard before the festival to choose treats that were all organic and safe for puppies. She tested them out on her dog Logan well beforehand and also designed the Chocology Pets logo, made banners and signs and created the doggy treat packaging. She was a world-class entrepreneur on Sunday, presenting the puppy products to passersby. Madeline’s doggy treats sold out in the first two hours of business. Madeline also had 197 voters register for her “Delicious Data” research project entitled What’s Your Favorite Chocolate? -to find out the results you will have to go to her ChocologyKids.wordpress.com blog next week.  Now that’s success! All in all it was a wonderful day. We met lots of great people and were proud to offer products that everyone enjoyed. If you weren’t able to get out to the Chocolate Festival, you can still try our Fat Ass Fudge. We’re having a “Chocology Sugar Rush” from now until Monday, November 24. Get ½ pound of fudge for $15 or a full pound for $30. Don’t miss this opportunity to serve this delicious organic fudge at your Thanksgiving table!
