Side Dishes: New chocolate shop in Montpelier

by

Three years ago, Jane and Wally Delia sold their business, Vermont Chocolatiers, to the owners of the Route 4 Country Store in Quechee and branched out in other directions.

Their hiatus didn’t last long. “We just kind of missed it,” Jane Delia says. “It’s a fun, creative business.”

So the Plainfield couple has signed a lease on a storefront at 40 State Street in Montpelier, where they will open the Cocoa Bean, a chocolate shop, later this month. Jane Delia says she will make all the chocolate — truffles, barks, clusters and turtles, among others — on site.

Expect some creative truffle flavors, she says, including toasted coconut, honey cognac and maple cayenne.
