scrumptious chocolate bars, handmade in vancouver by beta 5. crunchy, salty and dark.
Beta 5! Been dying to try these chocolates! Seen so many excellent reviews of their things in the local papers this past year… another item adding to my list for my next visit out to DC! ;p”’
Hi Carol! Beta 5 chocolates are ridiculously good! I sometimes worry about stocking them because it’s far too easy to wander over and open up a bar. The dark chocolate (63% i think) + Granola is my favorite! Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine and see you soon! PS: I’m closing for one week in October (Oct 2 – 9) for some holiday prep, cleaning, etc. and then the rest of the month I’ll be closed on Mon/Tue since Fiona is going home to Scotland for the month. I’ll be posting my October schedule online soon and this reminds me, I was going to blog it too. Cheers!
Thks for the update, Megan! I’ll keep in mind the Oct closure dates! Film fest is on til middle of month, so I won’t emerge until after then anyway. Can’t wait to get back out to the store, been too long. Question for you — do you intend to bring in Snow & Graham or Egg Press calendars?! I think I like Egg Press best, but appreciate if you could keep me posted on this front. Thank you! See you at soon this fall!
Hi Carol! The nice woman who represents Snow & Graham and EggPress in the Pacific Northwest will be here next week so that’s the first time I’ll be seeing both 2013 calendars. I had several requests for the pretty Snow & Graham wall calendars last year so hopefully the 2013 version is a show-stopper and I’ll bring it back! Eggpress is always great too so I’m sure that will be making a reappearance. Have fun at the film festival…I really need to carve some time to attend, it seems like every year comes and goes and I’ve yet to make it. See you soon! :)
