Chocolate Affair sweetens pot for AIDS Assistance Program

12 Nov

Chocolate AffairLast week’s Chocolate Affair was a joint venture between Cliff Young’s popular “Out To Eat” TV show on public station KVCR and Jeff Shotwell and Scott Jones of Imagine It! Media. The event served as a benefit for AIDS Assistance Program.

The trio organized the event, which was held at the Spa Resort Casino Hotel in downtown Palm Springs, and secured the cooperation of about 18 chocolate makers and vendors, including Los Angeles’ Chocolatique, San Diego’s David Bacco Chocolatier, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, ChocoVine, Over the Rainbow Cupcakes, Harry & David, Lulu California Bistro, Red Tomato and House of Lamb, Sherman’s Deli, The Steakhouse, Three Sixty North, Brandini Toffee and Billy Reed’s Restaurant.

Unlike some chocolate tasting events where the lines are long and they run out of samples, there was almost no waiting at this event — and the supplies never ran low. In addition to the expected fudge, icings,

chunks of toffee and truffles, there were unique chocolate drinks.

One of the most popular drinks was the nonalcoholic liquid chocolate martini offered by Sherman’s Deli in Palm Springs and Palm Desert. Guests were given sample-size plastic martini glasses being filled from a triple-deck fountain of foaming chocolate.

There was also a refreshing chocolate-mint flavored water, Metro Mint, available in most local supermarkets, and a unique chocolate beer, Hangar 24’s Chocolate Porter, which made its debut at the event.

Then, just a few steps away was a table of three chocolate flavored wines by ChocoVine. The samples, which packed a 14 percent alcohol punch, were understandably small but utterly delicious.

They can be purchased at BevMo in La Quinta.

Shotwell said they would like to make this a semi-annual event for AIDS Assistance Program.

Each guest paying the $25 admission fee was given a “Peoples’ Choice” voting card to drop in the box of their favorite chocolate vendor.

The top award went to local bakery Over the Rainbow Cupcakes & Deserts, with Brandini Toffee and David Bacco Chocolatier tying for second place.

Best decorated booth went to Sherman’s Deli for its martini fountain and embossed logo chocolates.

Lulu California Bistro came in a close second with its chic and stylish booth decorated in orange and turquoise.

The event drew approximately 250 chocolate lovers of all ages, sizes and lifestyles.

Among them were Barbara and Jerry Keller of LuLu and Acqua Pazza along with their general manager, Willie Rhine, Cricket Prescott of KPSP Local 2 with her mom, Karen Prescott, Gloria Greer and daughter Norma Fishkind, Mona Caywood, Denise Carter, Mark Anton and Scott Histed.

Proceeds from the event will help fund bimonthly food vouchers for the more than 500 local men, women and children affected by HIV and AIDS.

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Opens Nov. 1 in Mall

3 Nov

Rocky Mountain Chocolate FactoryThe Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory’s grand opening Nov. 1 at a Brookfield Square mall kiosk will include a gift basket giveaway.

Owner Stephen Betts said visitors who stop by the kiosk in front of the H&M store starting at 10 a.m. Nov. 1 will find “mountains of chocolate, trays full of giant dipped caramel apples and plenty of smiles.”

“Response has been awesome,” said Betts, who co-owns the kiosk with Steve Morris. “Our products are high quality and delicious, and it’s very gratifying to see people’s faces light up when they stop by. It makes me happy.”

Betts is opening the chocolate store after working as an interior designer for upscale furniture.

The Brookfield Square Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory kiosk will carry the same products as its large stores, including trademark Bears™, truffles, English toffee, nut clusters, caramels and Granny Smith apples spun in caramel or chocolate and rolled in tasty toppings.

“Nobody around offers caramel apples like we do,” Betts said.

The Brookfield kiosk — which has a Facebook page — is the company’s second location in Wisconsin. The shop in Delafield features more than 300 varieties of handmade chocolates and confections, including caramel apples and fudge.

The first Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory store opened in 1981 in Durango, CO. The company and its franchisees and licensees operate 365 stores in 36 states, Canada and the United Arab Emirates.
