Yes, the Finger Lakes wine tours are both popular and wonderful, but how about a chocolate tour for a change of pace?
There’s still time to experience a chocolate tour at our local chocolatier, Life’s So Sweet. The tours began in May and will continue through the end of October. Offered Thursday through Saturday, at 1 and 3 p.m., the tours of the chocolate factory include samples and a knowledgeable guide sharing information about the facts and history of chocolate.
The inviting smell alone is worth the trip!
History Behind the Artisan Chocolate
The dream made reality by Darlynne Overbaugh, Life’s So Sweet crafts artisan chocolates right here in Trumansburg, NY. Darlynne and her family have been creating candies and chocolate recipes for over 20 years.
Stop by the store in Trumansburg Mon-Sat 10 am – 6pm and Sunday 12-5 pm. Classic chocolates are available as well as unique confections such as balsamic vinegar truffles and chocolate-dipped dried kiwi. There’s a tremendous variety available…you can visit their website at LifesSoSweet.com to get an idea of their offerings. The photos of hand-crafted chocolates and treats will tempt you to go in for a visit. Their chocolates are available throughout the Finger Lakes region. In addition, they look for fairly traded chocolate sources and those which do not use child labor.
