The Sweet Spot, first installment

Rain. Sleet. Snow. Rain. Sleet. Snow. It’s the pattern of our days outside the Lake Champlain Chocolate Factory. It’s what keeps the mountains green during our glorious summers but it’s what keeps many of us blue during our long winters. “But you can ski and snowboard!” I know. I’ve heard it all before. But when you break it down, five days a week we have to work so the argument for having fun in the snow only holds up for about 28% of the week. Luckily, I work in a chocolate factory, thus bolstering me for the other 71%. And with that note, I’d like to pay homage to the sweets that keep me going through my week. I’ll call it “The Sweet Spot” where I shall occasionally sing the praises of what delicious morsel (or morsels) got me through the day.

Today, I say thank you to two things that have set my morning off just right. My steaming hot cup of Tazo Awake and a lovely little chocolate I think I’ve mention before, the Vanilla Malt Truffle. I can’t tell you how long I’ve been in love with the Vanilla Malt Truffle but it has always been my favorite. It’s creamy milk chocolate ganache center with vanilla notes and hints of malt give it a twist just enough away from plain milk chocolate, you know it’s something special.

I know I should be eating dark chocolate because it’s good for my heart but this yummy truffle is good for my soul. Like an old friend, it’s making me feel better about my gloomy day today. And once my cup of tea cools enough to drink, I’ll be golden. So today, I salute the perfect cup of tea and my vanilla malt truffle. What’s getting you through your day today?
