Hey Dad, We are Thinking of You...

Sweeten up Dad this year with a gift from the Sweet Shop, Fathers Day is just 1 week away! We just received our hand made truffle collection from Saratoga Chocolates. A handsome gift box filled with 2 black & tan, 2 port & 2 chili spice truffles. Hard to resist this one, you will want to keep it for yourself!

Or pick up a bag of the English Toffee. We are really gaga over this one, it is sooooooooooo good (of course we have to sample everything first ;)

Saratoga's housemade toffee is made with butter and sugar and cooked just right. They enrobe the pieces in a dark milk chocolate finished with chopped almonds and then break them in to pieces.

Plenty of Sweetness for Dad here, Happy Fathers Day!

Sweet Shop Gives Back to Local Schools

The Sweet Shop is already making its second donation to local schools!

What appears as a simple “tip” jar located on the counter reads “Any spare change will go to schools”. The customers drop their change in the jar and often give even more after realizing it goes back to their schools. This is a true definition of full circle giving.

A total of $3800 has been collected in the last year and will be presented to two local schools this week, Egan Junior High School in Los Altos will receive $1900 to purchase an Interactive Presentation Presenter and Terman Junior High School in Palo Alto will receive $1900 to purchase a much needed Smart Board.

Thank you so much Sweet Shop Customers...Life is Sweet!
