Smells Like Spring!

Spring is officially here—and so are all the bright, clean, floral and fruity fragrances that we always associate with warmer weather. Whether you’re drawn to the crisp, fresh scents of cotton, spearmint or eucalyptus; the mouth-watering aromas of orange, lemon and berries; or the soft, subtle scents of roses, lilacs and peonies, you’ll find a perfect spring candle no matter what you’re into!

In addition to the plethora of scents you can choose from, candles also come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and packaging options. Because of their beauty (and functionality!), candles can also serve as a great addition to your home décor. Pair several large candles on a table for a bold conversation piece; place smaller candles in an accent color around the room to tie everything together; or use the soft light in a candle-lit lantern to create a cozy, intimate ambiance. Because of their many uses and functions, candles are an extremely popular and affordable way for consumers to quickly spruce up their homes for spring.

4 Simple Ingredients, Unlimited Chocolate Possibilities

Whether you love to nibble on fresh-out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookies, add some milk chocolate to a s’more or enjoy decadent dark chocolate candies, it’s hard to pick a favorite chocolate treat. With so many options, types and tastes, there’s definitely something for everyone!

No matter what flavor is your favorite, all types of chocolate start with chocolate liquor (which actually does not contain any alcohol, despite its name), which is formed by grinding cacao beans into a smooth, liquid paste.

Types of Different Chocolate

Different Types of Chocolate

Once the chocolate liquor has been allowed to cool and harden, you have “unsweetened chocolate”, also known as baking, pure or bitter chocolate. If you like things a little sweeter, adding cocoa butter and sugar in varying amounts to the chocolate liquor creates semisweet chocolate (the perfect addition to cookies), or traditional sweet chocolate, depending on the amounts of sugar and cocoa butter added.

Milk chocolate, as you might have guessed, combines 10% chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, sugar and milk, of course. And while white chocolate is not technically categorized as a type of chocolate because it doesn’t contain any chocolate liquor, it is also made of at least 20% cocoa butter and 14% milk and varying amounts of sugar.

So, with just a few simple ingredients, you can make virtually any type of chocolate you want, but having the right equipment to get the job done is just as important. The experts at Savage Bros have been perfecting the art of chocolate making with high-quality, innovative chocolate-making equipment and confectionary supplies since 1855.
