Local chocolatiere Cocoa Dolce has partnered with Wichita State University for a very tasty new project with a very clever name — Shockolates!
It’s fun to say, especially of you say it with a French pronunciation (like the movie starring Juliette Binoche.)
Cocoa Dolce owner Beth Tully, who went to WSU, has created three ways to enjoy Shockolate — in milk chocolate bar form, as a solid chocolate “Wu on a Stick,” or (my preference) in a little variety box that includes six pieces, including the famous champgange ball and a chocolate bite meticulosly painted with a the image of WuShock. I taste tested them, you know, for quaility control, and can report with confidence that they taste as good as they look.
They’re available at the Cocoa Dolce store in Bradley Fair, online at www.cocoadolce.com, in the WSU Bookstore and at concession stands in Charles Koch Arena during WSU athletic events.
On Saturday, Cocoa Dolce will put on a launch party from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Bradley Fair store. Attendees can have their pictures taken with WuShock, sample Schokolates and get WSU mementos. Admission is free.
Ahem, Beth Tully, how about Jayhawkolates next?
