Celebrate Fall And National White Chocolate Day

According to the RCI Calendar besides being the first day of fall September 22nd, 2017 is known as National White Chocolate Day. So we have a few treats for white chocolate fans.

Even though the weather is surprisingly warm let’s talk hot chocolate. White chocolate truffle is high on the list of the most popular hot chocolates available from Gourmet du Village. They also make a no sugar added version. In flavoured options the new cookies and cream hot chocolate is a white truffle base. Of course there a host of other choices available in regular double truffle hot chocolate. All are priced at $1.29 each or 10 for $11.50.

In white chocolate we make several different barks. Choose from White Almond, Plain White, White Cranberry-Hazelnut, Cookies and Cream and White Gummy Bear barks. All chocolate is priced at $6.60 for 100g or $29.95 a pound.

Since autumn has begun this a good time to remind everyone about pumpkin pie fudge, now in store. This delicious treat has become more and more popular over the 30 plus years we have been making it. Its early arrival into the fudge cabinet this year has been met with great delight.

Lots of other fall flavours are in store as well. Why not come in today and pick up something to celebrate?
