Artisan Confections is proud to present “Chocolates For A Cause”. This program is our way of giving back to the people and communities that fuel our creativity and enable our existence. For each selected neighborhood partner, we will craft a limited edition chocolate collection containing flavors that reflect the organization’s purpose. We will offer the 4-piece boxes in both of our shops and online for $10, and will be donating 25% of the proceeds from each box sold.
Our inaugural partner for Chocolates For A Cause is the Friends of the Arlington Public Library, also known as FOAL, whose endless support of literacy and love of learning and reading is near and dear to our hearts. Some people say that books are like chocolate for the mind, so we are delighted to present our special collection for this worthy organization whose mission is to enable a strong, vibrant, engaged community using libraries as a place to read, learn, work, create, congregate, and share ideas.
The Friends of the Arlington Public Library collection includes flavors inspired by timeless works from authors J.K. Rowling, F. Scott Fitzgerald, C.S. Lewis, and Jack Kerouac.
This 4 piece box features the following chocolates:
