Blissful Wunders In this issue of the Spoonful, you’ll find a coupon for 50 cents off your purchase of any of the Co-op’s delicious selection of Blissful Wunders Chocolates.
If you want to treat yourself, your friends, or your family to a chocolate truffle that has been hand-rolled, dipped, designed, packaged and labeled, then this is for you! These chocolates are made with local organic butter, cream and cream cheese from Tunawerth Creamery, and filled with pureed berries from our local Johnson Berry Farm and Pigman’s Farm. As for sweetening, only organic syrups are used – absolutely no corn syrup or refined sugars – and only organic extracts and nuts.
A vegan variety has been created, using coconut cream, Earth Balance organic coconut spread, chocolate and fruit purees, as well as a diabetic friendly truffle, available through his website, in which only plant based sweeteners are used.
The chocolates are made with 65% cocoa mass chocolate from Columbia through Cordillera, a company that honors fair trade and organic practices. Brother Bliss, founder of Blissful Wunders Confectionary Chocolats’, has long loved to “play with food”. He works joyfully hard to gather his ingredients from local sources, but admits that so far, cacao does not grow in the Pacific Northwest. It is his fantasy to build a greenhouse by spring that can offer him a tropical environment to grow his own Pacific Northwest cacao trees! Go Bliss!
