Chocolate Special at Xoconochco this weekend

Available this weekend only!
July 14-15, 2007

They've Arrived! They've Arrived! We've been waiting for picked-at-peak BING CHERRIES like a kid waiting for Santa Claus. We were so excited to open the shipment yesterday.

Cherries. Big, bold, firm, dark, mahogany red cherries. Straight from the orchard.This summer, we are participating in a limited program with Batch's Best Family Farms, a farm with acclaimed cherries located in the high plateau of eastern Washington. There, fruit is allowed to ripen on the tree rather than en route to the store. Tom Batch's family hand-picks each piece of fruit, and then the cherries are checked for size, color, firmness, and even to be sure they have a stem, five times, before they are boxed and shipped. This means every cherry is, well, cherry-picked from all the rest! Perhaps this is why they have been sited in publications such as Bon Appetit', Saveur, and the New York Times.

BING CHERRIES are the most popular variety of sweet cherry and the first cherries of the season. Washington produces some of the finest cherries, apples and pears in the world, but most of that fruit is picked too early, because it needs to travel by truck or train across the country to reach our supermarkets. At Batch's Best Family Farms, they are available for just one day a year - the day they are picked and immediately shipped to us - perfectly ripe- straight from the orchard. We waste no time in dipping them in white, milk, or dark chocolate and topping them off with ground almonds, walnuts, or pistachios. Our goal is for YOU to enjoy them as if you just brought them in from your OWN beautiful orchard and dipped them straight into luxurious chocolate. We have limited quantities available and when we are sold out, there will be no more until next year. So, come by early or call us to reserve your selection of FRESHLY PICKED, FRESHLY DIPPED CHOCOLATE CHERRIES!

Visit us at the shop or call us at 1-877-LUV-XOCO.

Options include: dark chocolate (64%), dark chocolate with almonds, milk chocolate (40%), milk chocolate with walnuts, white chocolate, white chocolate with pistachios.

Price:$ 1.45 each
