Hi! My name is Stephanie Zonis, and welcome to the March, 2001
edition of For Chocolate Lovers Only! Each month, you'll
find recipes, tips, and recommendations on chocolate specialties
Chocolate Recommendation of the Month:
You need a little more fun in your life. You want something
you can share, something that'll make you smile, but not anything
too involved or complicated. And wouldn't it be great if it
was chocolate, too? You're in luck! This month's Chocolate Find,
Cool Bean Mints, is just what you've been seeking. Fun little
mints in a bean shape, these come in handy small tins in three
varieties: original mint, with a powerfully peppermint outer
shell and chocolate-mint combination inside; dark chocolate
mint, with a dark chocolate coating and smooth minty inside;
and milk chocolate chai tea caramel--not a mint, to be sure,
but a little "bean" of chewy caramel with the subtle flavor
of chai, covered in milk chocolate. Cool Bean Mints use
only pure peppermint oil (where applicable) and good Guittard
to find them? Online, check out www.javatrends.com or www.oakvillegrocery.com.
As of this writing, the mints were not on the oakvillegrocery.com
site, but the company does sell them; call them at (800) 973-6324.
In addition, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters features Cool
Bean Mints in their catalog; their phone number is (800)
223-6768. These are great revivers if that meeting is dragging
on forever or you're tired of shovelling snow or for those times
when you just need a wee chocolate "hit". Check 'em out!
