Asheville Chocolate Collective Featuring 6 Local Mompreneurs

Back by popular demand, French Broad Chocolate is offering a NEW collection of six distinct and delicious bonbons celebrating the collaborative spirit of Asheville just in time for Mother’s Day; each inspired by a mom-founded Asheville business. The Mountain Mamas Collection features the B Corp’s bean-to-bar confections crafted in their Asheville Chocolate Factory; each flavor is an homage to food and drinks from Asheville mom-founded businesses: Poppy Popcorn, Curate, Buggy Pops, Sarilla, Chai Pani, and French Broad Chocolates.

Co-founder of French Broad Chocolate, CEO, and mom of two, Jael Skeffington pitched the concept of the collection to mompreneurs of the Asheville community including Katie Button of Curate, Ginger Frank of Poppy Popcorn, Sara Delaney of Sarilla, Neomi Negron from Buggy Pops, and Molly Irani of Chai Pani

“The idea is to celebrate Mother’s Day by shining a light on a few of the amazing moms in our mountain town. We’re inspired by those who birth babies and businesses, who care about their families at home and at work; who strive to make our community better, stronger, and tastier for the benefit of all,” says Skeffington. The new bonbons range from dark and rich to light and playful. Poppy’s irresistible sweet & salty Butter Almond Toffee popcorn inspired a milk chocolate ganache with toasty almonds and crunchy, buttery toffee bits. The Mango Lassi bonbon, featuring sweet mango and tart yogurt with cardamom and lime in a white chocolate ganache, is homage to the classic refresher from James Beard Award winning restaurant, Chai Pani. Sangria Roja from Katie Button’s award-winning restaurant, Curate, is the star of their dark chocolate bonbon featuring red wine, citrus, juniper, peppercorn, and cognac. “We’re deeply rooted here in Asheville and feel so fortunate to be able to collaborate with this community’s badass moms,” says Skeffington. The Mountain Mamas Collection is $38 for a box of 24 handcrafted bonbons, and can be ordered online for nationwide shipping at frenchbroadchocolates.com, and at their three locations (Asheville and Atlanta).

In addition to the product available for purchase we are giving away an Asheville experience on Instagram, valued at $1,300, including a two-night stay at Hotel Arras in downtown Asheville and products from each of the participating mom-owned brands.
