It’s BOOM BAM time!

Boom! Bam! That’s the sound of the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival coming our way June 1-10 this year with performances happening all over Burlington, VT. For years, Lake Champlain Chocolates has been a proud sponsor of the event, and this year we wanted to kick it up a notch and do something really special to celebrate the festival, its musicians, and the music. So, for this year’s festival, we are happy to announce we’ll be releasing a limited edition chocolate bar called the Boom! Bam! Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Experience.

The bar is made up of our signature 34% milk chocolate filled with bourbon-soaked roasted pecans and a warming hint of cayenne pepper. The flavor combination was really inspired by the place that gave birth to jazz – New Orleans and what jazz could look like interpreted into chocolate. Smooth, creamy milk chocolate, toasty, crunchy southern pecans, the subtle complexity of the bourbon with its vanilla and oak notes, and the spicy cayenne pepper give a nod to the diversity and layers that make up jazz music.

Bars are available for purchase in all three of our retail locations – Pine St., Church St. and Waterbury Center, online, and we will also be selling the bars at many of the Discover Jazz Festival shows. Just look for our tent or table! We’ll be there amid all the action with chocolate bars available for you!

All profits of each Boom! Bam! Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Experience go entirely to the FlynnArts “LCC Youth in Jazz Scholarship,” providing year-round classes and workshops for students, regardless of financial means. We care deeply about the importance of the arts in everyone’s lives and wanted to provide a way for future generations to learn, grow, and participate in the jazz movement for years to come.

From idea to finished piece, we’ve been so excited to finally get the opportunity to release this bar— we hope you enjoy every bite!
