The Candy Store is a fun little place in Polk Gulch to buy both artisan and nostalgic candies and chocolate. If you've been there once, you're bound to return. They are hosting a drop in Happy Hour with chocolate tasting with a chance to talk to a Local Chocolatier ! So let's drop by and say hi to Shawn Williams, the owner of San Francisco-based Feve Artisan Chocolates, chat it up, get some sugar and enjoy ourselves!
More details on the event from The Candy Store website:
Shawn Williams, the owner of San Francisco-based Feve Artisan Chocolatier, will be doing a tasting of his delectable confections at our store on August 1st, and it's not something you're going to want to miss! His passion for chocolate and many years of experience (formerly a pastry chef at La Folie) are evident in some of the most beautiful and delicious chocolates you will ever taste! Shawn believes that high-quality artisan chocolate simply starts with the best cacao beans - 'feve' means 'bean' in French - and he only buys his beans from companies who pay their farmers more than that required by fair trade organizations. The end result is magical...
If you arrive around the end of the event, 7pm, we'll adjourn around the corner to the cafe for a half hour to continue to chat and meetup. (If members are interested.)
