Here’s the Scoop – What a Party it Was!
Our Ciao Bella Gelato Twitter Party was an evening of chat, fun and prizes! And, may we say there were prizes galore from Ciao Bella and from our co–sponsor Chef’n.

Seattle Chocolate Truffle Bars
We discovered these yummy truffle bars at the 2011 Fancy Food Show. We like the wrappers, almost as much as the chocolate. They make us smile! And the chocolate truffle bar inside – delicious! These truffle bars from Seattle Chocolates are certified kosher dairy by Rabbi Benjamin Kaplinsky. What a wonderful gift to cheer someone up, or just to say "Hi", "Happy birthday", or "Thank you."
Birthday Cake Truffle Bar
Birthday cake mix center with colorful confetti pieces enrobed in milk chocolate. “Tastes like birthday wishes.”
Lemon Ice Truffle Bar
White chocolate truffle bar infused with lemon oil and made by hand, old fashioned sour lemon candy pieces.
Campfire S’mores Truffle Bar
Packed with kosher marshmallow nougat and graham crackers, this solid milk chocolate bar brings back memories of campfires and ghost stories. Crafted with vegan kosher marshmallows that are handmade in small batches. So much fun for a camp package.
