    Join us for a virtual tasting on Thursday, Feb. 10th at 6pm, as boutique West Coast chocolatier Theo Chocolates guides our inner chocoholic along the sweet path of indulgence. Each tasting box includes EIGHT samples of finely crafted artisanal confections – including peanut butter & jelly cups, specialty flavors like root beer barrel and (not sample-sized, but actual full-sized) bars such as orange dark chocolate and sea salt. 

    Registration is limited to 30 screens, so reserve your space today!

    LAIPLA will be providing this session virtually.  Access information and your chocolatel tasting box will be sent to you just prior to the event on February 10th.
