Regular service both in-store and online will resume Tuesday, April 17th at 8am. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Hoarding Hare Winner Announced

Hoarding Hare Winner Announced

The Hoarding Hare egg counting contest winner has been announced!

Marilyn Maxwell is our 2018 winner for the annual Easter contest. Marilyn tell us she had popped in the previous Saturday to enjoy a little outing and pick up her husband a piece of cake from Cakebread Artisan Bakery. Seeing the contest in the window, she jotted down her winning guess and went on to enjoy her day. We are so pleased that she did! Only 1 egg off, she won our largest chocolate bunny, Paul Bunnyan (24 inches of semi-solid Belgium chocolate), retail valued of $149. Congratulations Marilyn, it was a such a pleasure to have you as our winner!
