February is a time for my one true love, chocolate! Valentine’s Day may be a Hallmark holiday to some, and to others it’s a good excuse to buy lingerie or flowers. But I look forward to the chocolate. It is even sweeter when given by my husband or children, who know I am a chocoholic.
So when I heard about Chocolate Fix, owned by Canton resident Lynne Wingfield, and she offered me samples, my Valentine’s Day dream came true!
A 3-box tower of chocolate arrived at my house with each item individually packaged, labeled, and tied with ribbon. The choices were so exciting: chocolate toffee with pecans, cookies ‘n cream bites, red velvet balls, turtle brownies, mint chocolate chip cookies, chocolate gooey butter cookies, turtle cheesecake bites, redneck turtles, and more.
To help spread the love, I brought the tower to the bus stop. Everyone commented how beautiful the presentation was and how delicious, fresh, and soft all the candy, brownies and cookies were.
Lynne started her business after she and her husband catered their wedding in June 2008, which included an entire chocolate dessert table. Her motto: Seven days without chocolate makes one weak! Her friends and family quickly placed orders and word of mouth helped her business grow.
If you aren’t sure which item to try, or would like to give a small assortment to someone, the assorted box is a great idea, starting at $9 (contains 3 each of 5 items for a total of 15 pieces). For other gifts or party trays, pricing begins at $8 for 1 dozen and goes to $50 for 8 dozen.
Pricing is structured so that the more you buy, the lower the price is per dozen or assorted box. She sells to individuals and businesses of any size. Minimum order is one dozen; maximum order has yet to be reached! During the past several holiday seasons, she has sold hundreds of gift baskets and towers to local businesses.
Lynne also decorates cakes for most occasions. She has created very cute cakes for birthdays, baby showers, baptisms, first communions, engagements and weddings. Her only disclaimer is that she isn’t trying to be the Ace of Cakes or the Cake Boss! Most cakes are covered with an out-of-this-world buttercream and fondant is used for decoration when necessary.
Her website is easy to navigate and has pictures of most items. To reach her, you can call or text Lynne’s cell: 404-226-2250, or email her at email@example.com. In February, order a gift tower containing 5 dozen pieces ($34 for candy + $6 for packaging) and be entered to win a second tower of equal value (drawing 2/28). All other orders receive a 10% discount when mentioning this Scoop OTP article. Support a locally owned business from home and make someone’s life sweeter!
