Holiday Discounts, Cheer, and Generosity

In the San Francisco Bay Area, Charles Chocolates has cooked up a holiday promotion for Chocolate in Context readers. To receive a discount of 15% on everything from the an $8 box of mini chocolate squares to a $90 deluxe assortment of bon bons, please visit the Charles Chocolates online store and enter the code CHOCCONTEXT when placing your order. The promotion runs through Monday (December 17).

In New York, Financial District chocolate shop Christopher Norman is hosting an after-hours tasting this week. In addition to chocolatier John Down's signature hand-painted bon bons, hot cocoa, hot mulled cider, and espresso will be on offer. To join in, stop by 60 New Street in Manhattan. The tasting runs from 6pm to 10pm on Wednesday (December 19).

And here in Pittsburgh, retailer Mon Aimee Chocolat has collaborated with Chocolate in Context to raffle off a selection of bite-sized artisanal bars and a $50 gift certificate. Mon Aimee Chocolat's donation is part of Menu for Hope, a kick-ass fundraiser for the UN World Food Programme that has already raised $24,000 this year. To enter, please follow the instructions that I posted on Monday or visit the Menu for Hope headquarters at Chez Pim for even more details. Menu for Hope runs through December 21.
