Kakao in the News

Actually, we were on the news! A crew from KSDK 5 was at the Tower Grove Market on Saturday asking how the economy was impacting the market, and interviewed Brian on camera. We didn’t see it, but heard from others that it ran a few times on Sunday.

Has the economy impacted the market? Probably in some ways. But I told the reporter the Tower Grove and other markets made it easier for people to buy fresh, locally grown and all-natural foods, which more people want to eat, even if times are tough.

Brian was also featured in an article in the October Small Business Monthly entitled Discovering the Art of Chocolate. There are some great pictures, but are only in the print version, if you run across it.

A couple big orders this week, plus the Wednesday market at Schlafly’s and the Saturday market in Tower Grove Park. And we got rave reviews from a huge wedding on Saturday, which featured single-malt Scotch and lavender-vanilla truffles at every place setting and dragees on every table. We’ll be posting some pictures of our wedding chocolates soon, so stay tuned!
