Valentine’s Day Treats!

We’re excited for February 14, because we’ve got some very special treats in store — both Kakao stores, to be specific!


We’ve got some beautiful heart boxes for our truffles and caramels, with traditional red with soft plush, and some absolutely gorgeous brown hearts for the non-traditional gal (or guy!) in your life. We’ll have all the traditional truffles, plus some fun new ones, like hibiscus tea, cherry (which happens to also be vegan), and some more, including a special truffle that might be the most interesting and delicious one we’ve made. (Don’t worry, we’re going to keep pushing that envelope!)

Kakao is also partnering with two companies to bring to you some great treats that we don’t make. From Colorado, we’ve got some beautiful heart lollies, made with all-natural colors and all-natural cherry flavor. If you tried some of the candy canes and lollies we had in the shop in December, they’re from the same company — really great hard candy.

And from another company in California, we’ve got some fantastic new confections, including chocolate covered almonds. No, we’re not stopping production on our chocolate-covered-toffee-covered almond dragees — these are more traditional almonds covered in chocolate and then with confectioners glaze for that familiar — but all-natural — shine. We also have some fantastic chocolate-covered coffee beans — lots of you have been asking for those! And chocolate covered cocoa nibs — when you try these, lots of you will be asking for more of those, too!

And these:


Jelly beans! Made with fruit juice concentrates and colored with all-natural fruit and vegetable extracts. Available in small, tasty packs, or like this:



And, of course, all the usual Kakao confections: sea salt caramels, marshmallow pies, fruit marshmallows, chocolate lollies, and dozens of different kinds of chocolate bark.

We’ll be open our normal hours at Kakao Maplewood — 10 a.m. to 7 p.m Monday through Saturday, and noon to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. Kakao on Jefferson will be open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m Tuesday through Saturday, but also open noon to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 12, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, February 13, for your shopping convenience. See you soon!
