Halloween: It's Not Just For Kids Anymore
Vermont chocolate company offers gourmet treats for children and adults
October 14, 2010 :: Every year, Halloween is morphing into more and more of an adult holiday. Adults use it as a day to let loose and have an excuse to wear costumes that range from silly to sexy to scary. In 2009, Americans spent approximately $6 billion on this holiday alone for costumes, candy, decorations and cards.
So why, if more adults are celebrating this holiday, should they have to settle for run-of-the-mill, children’s trick-or-treating bonbons? Lake Champlain Chocolates (LCC), a gourmet Vermont chocolatier, offers consumers a broad range of Halloween-themed confections for both the young and young at heart searching for a fresh take on the holiday’s candy. These chocolate Halloween treats make perfect party favors, gifts for favorite trick-or-treaters, and candy dish fillers at parties.
New Halloween chocolates this year include: • Autumn Chocolate Leaves: These handmade 54% dark chocolate leaves decorated with maple leaf accents are tied with an orange ribbon and make for a fun fall treat or an elegant table favor at Thanksgiving.
• Dark Caramel Pumpkins: Festively wrapped in bright orange foils, these dark chocolate pumpkins filled with a sweet, creamy caramel offer a sophisticated and balanced taste that makes them the ultimate Halloween treat.
• Assorted Chocolate Pumpkins and Leaves: These irresistible chocolate leaves and pumpkins are sure to please your guests! A mouthwatering assortment of milk chocolate leaves with a creamy caramel center (gold foil); dark chocolate leaves filled with all-natural peanut butter (red foil); and dark chocolate pumpkins filled with sweet caramel (orange foil) make for great candy dish fillers.
• Haunted House Chocolate Coins Box: This hauntingly delicious box is filled with milk chocolate coins (orange foil) and dark chocolate coins (gold foil). They’re the ideal gift for your favorite trick-or-treaters or to give as Halloween party favors.
Other popular Halloween chocolates include the Chocolate Pumpkin Face, a gourmet dark chocolate pumpkin face hand decorated with white chocolate colored orange using annatto, an all-natural food coloring made from seeds; a Dark Chocolate Spooky Cat, a 5-inch cat with an arched back, bushy tail, and wide eyes; and a Chocolate Ghost, an eerie ghost made of pure white chocolate.
