AHHHH, Fall, one of my favorite seasons...
I love the leaves changing , the cooler months, socks , hats ..Wait, where am I ? Oh yes, California ! its coming, yes it is ...patience (something I know not !) So I think the first thing in order would be our Carpinteria Avocado Festival . The 5,6,& 7 of October, yes this weekend ! And for that...They're baaack ! Jean-Michel's white chocolate,avocado ganache truffle dipped in dark ! They were an absolute hit last year and this year is no exception! They will be here only 2 weeks so don't miss out ! You can find them in the Carp. store, the S.B. store AND for the Avocado Festival find them at the Carpinteria Chamber stand inside the booming festival! Last year we ran out, so don't be one of those who kept wondering where they could find some more! For those of you who already asked where they can find them the Carp. store started selling them on Monday 1
For the change of the choco's after the two weeks of Avocado comes the darling , cute , delicious , dark chocolate pumpkin pie ganache Pumpkins ! They are so cute you probably won't want to eat them ,but don't worry , that lasts about 1 second and then ...down the hatch ! andoff for another ! He will be here (10/08) until the end of October to help you celebrate your Halloween festivities. Offer them to your friends, bring them to your parties...but whatever you do ..save some for yourself !
