I made a promise, and I'm stickin to it. A post a month! June is shaping up to be pretty swell, as far as I'm concerned. Folks are starting to flock back to Gloucester and Salem. The Northshore is truly spectacular; those of us who live here are beyond lucky.
Summertime means a lot of things, not the least of which are extended hours. Also, wacky holiday hours (did you know that the Gloucester Parade is called the Horribles, and happens on July 3rd?!). There's block parties, beach days, fireworks, farmer's markets - all good things, really. And maybe the summer weather will come and stay!
It turtle town, though, summer means the return of a couple of special treats. We love our Strawberry Pecan Turtles in milk chocolate, and adore our white chocolate Cashew Blueberry Turtles. These are originals to Turtle Alley, don't let imitations fool you!
In other news, it was pointed out to me by my loyal customers that there is a dearth of excellent chocolate jimmies in our area. We've got you covered! We use the best when making our Tulips (Brazil nut wrapped in caramel and rolled in chocolate jimmies). I posted a video on Instagram and Facebook, and the jimmies got all the love. SO now we are packaging them up in BPA free containers for you to grab for whatever you need them for. I've been toying with a recipe for candied maple walnuts, it's pretty alright, maybe we should sell those too? What do we think, folks? Your input is welcome and much appreciated!
I'm sure the long days and warmer temperatures will stoke my creative fires, so who knows? There could be new and fabulous taste treats on the horizon!
Stay tuned. See you in July!
