June Tasting BoxPosted: May 17, 2011
So our fabulous new website is up (which is why this blog has gone back to it’s wordpress domain), and I must say that our in-house graphics-guy, Daniel Boccato, really outdid himself. Full disclosure: this man also happens to be my significant other, so perhaps I am biased. Please check out the new site and tell us what you think!
You will also notice that the new site has an announcement about our Tasting Box, a new monthly offer from fig + kindle. This box is stuffed full with a number of newly-invented sweets, old classics, and always something different that what we offer in our normal repertoire. The box changes each month along with its packaging; each one is put together to tell a story about the particular time of year from locally-sourced fruits, to new designer wrapping paper.
To give you a sneak peak at June: we have a kraft paper cube, wrapped with green and white hydrangea paper, filled with five sweets:
Local Strawberry Elderflower Jam
Lavender Almond Toffee
Lemon Verbena Marshmallows
Whole Wheat Sablés with Shaved Taza Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, and Maine Sea Salt
Candied Thyme Walnuts
We will be accepting orders for these boxes until June 15th, after which all will be assembled and shipped the following week. Check them out on ETSY.
Please keep a lookout for new announcements as we relaunch fig + kindle in its entirety in June!
