Episode 35: Let’s get Chocolate Wasted!


Nothing is sweeter than pure, unadulterated, swiss chocolate! The New Utah’s guest this week brought some to share!! Jennie Hales is founder and owner and mind-blowing creator of The Truffle Cottage. Based in Utah County, they don’t have a store front, but their popularity is surging because of their presence at Comic Cons around the country. You can also purchase their nerd-themed chocolates on their website too! Next events include our own FanX in March, ECCC, and many more!
