Saucy Soiree 2013

Summer evenings in St. Louis are filled with BBQ’s, pool parties and a chance to spend time with friends.  Our friends at Sauce Magazine are planning quite a party this Sunday — we’ll be there, and you should be there, too.


The Saucy Soiree on Sunday, June 30th is the magazine’s annual tribute to St. Louis’ best restaurants and food purveyors.  The winners of the Readers’ Choice Award are announced that evening, and you will get a chance to sample offerings from many of the winners (and yes, there will be plenty of Kakao chocolate) in the ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel.  When the tasting party is over, the celebrating continues on the hotel’s rooftop, to the epic views of the St. Louis skyline at sunset.

Kakao Chocolate has been recognized for our chocolate confections by Sauce Magazine readers and editors for several years in a row now, (as well as by other publications and groups) and we always look forward to being a part of the Saucy Soiree.  Here’s more information about this ticketed event:

The Saucy Soiree means that summer is in full swing for us, and while we are busy getting ready for all of our summer outings, we can’t help but notice the hints of summer in both of our Kakao Chocolate shops.  There’s our seasonally delicious Peculiar Pairings (the current offerings are inspired by and infused with Indian flavorings) there are thirst-quenching sodas at the Jefferson Avenue shop, and everyone’s favorite, Serendipity Ice Cream with Kakao syrups and toppings — now at both shops!

Don’t worry we still have plenty of our “regulars”, including our award-winning Sea Salt Caramels, in stock.  Be sure to stock up on our summer confections, because they make great hostess gifts for those BBQs and pool parties, too.  Of course, you will also need to have some on hand at home, too, for those nights you just want to settle in for the evening.

Kakao Chocolates are the perfect complement to your evening cocktail or that sweet something you crave after you’ve enjoyed summer’s bounty of fresh produce and grilled meats.  Whatever it is you have planned for your summer enjoyment, we hope we are part of it and hope to see you soon.
