Summer in Chicago

Summer in Chicago

June 06, 2018

We're looking at a pretty crazy summer here at bumble & butter.

First and foremost, I'm excited to tell you all that I am in Chicago this summer for the Wild Ophelia accelerator program, which was created by founder Katrina Markoff to encourage young female entrepreneurs to pursue their passions in the food industry. 

Wild Ophelia is the sister company of the chocolate company Vosges Haut-Chocolat - their creations are absolutely amazing. I just can't wait to be surrounded by this chocolate everyday. Inspired by different flavors and cuisines from all over the world, Vosges gives you a unique chocolate experience by incorporating ingredients such as curry, wasabi, and bacon. YUM! 

Wild Ophelia offers unique chocolates as well at a more affordable price point than Vosges. I absolutely love their cold brew chocolate bites and the peanut butter cups! I also can't tell you how much I enjoy the crispy rice milk chocolate bar. Oh man, anything with crunchy bits and chocolate... sign me up. 

Given that the entire team is away from Ithaca and doing their respective internships, bumble & butter will have a bit of a slowdown until the end of August. We're still baking the granola ourselves, making it hard to keep up production this summer. BUT we're on our way towards finding a contract manufacturer to help us. 

And of course, after getting amazing experience and insight from our internships, we'll be back rolling after the summer faster and better than ever!

Cheers to a summer filled with chocolate and granola!

One of the greatest pleasures of doing what I do is meeting other artisans and hearing their stories. Being in upstate New York and traveling to markets, I'm surrounded by a plethora of great farms and producers.
