My Halloween order message is below. Website is live and accepting orders, but I haven't sent this out to my full mailing list yet. So I'd appreciate any commentary on the text below or on the site, and also on button functionality. I've tried to make the ordering process as simple as possible, but what's simple to do manually (apply a discount for a set number of items) is harder to program a paypal button to do. I'll be adding pictures once I get home - they're on my other computer.

[livejournal.com profile] tanac, you win a free Smoky Joe for coming up with the name - let me know if you'd like to order anything to go with it.

Open House Invitation
Did you know that there's a place in Ann Arbor that's an incubator for new artisanal food businesses? Well, there is, and it's the kitchen I rent to make my creations - Main Dish Kitchen. It was launched by two entreprenureual women, and since I started using the kitchen in February of 2007, several additional businesses have made their homes in that location as well. We mostly hang out in the back, but on October 18 we'll all be up front, showing (and sampling) our stuff. Stop by Main Dish Kitchen on October 18 between 4 pm and 7 pm for treats from Tammy's Tastings, cupcakes from Hey Cupcake, cakes from Cakes by Rubina, spinach pies from Specialty Wholesale Foods, cookies from Among Friends Organic Cookie Mixes, and samples from Main Dish Kitchen too. Main Dish Kitchen is located at 5060 Jackson Rd in Ann Arbor, just east of Zeeb Rd.

Halloween Sale
As hot days turn to cool nights and the leaves start to fall, it's time for me to brush off my chocolate making equipment and get back to business. This Halloween I've decided to take my annual Halloween Candy for Grownups sale in a new direction. Stock up on these gourmet candy bars from Tammy's Tastings for yourself, and then you won't have to scrounge through your kid's loot bags or raid the office leftover pile!

Sweet Salty Crunchy - Indulge yourself with this combination of crunchy pretzels, salty chewy caramel, and amazingly peanuty Koeze peanut butter, dipped in dark chocolate.

Pick Me Up - A shot of espresso you can throw in your bag for later, this bar combines coffee nougat with chewy espresso caramel and crunchy roasted espresso beans, all dipped in dark chocolate.

Smoky Joe - The devil's in the details, and what details they are... an all butter shortbread cookie topped with a smoky and spicy chipotle caramel and dipped in creamy milk chocolate.

$4.50/bar, $13 for a 3-pack, or $24 for a 6-pack. Orders must be received by October 17 for guaranteed order fulfillment, although I'll continue to fill orders as long as I have stock. Bars will be available for pick up/ delivery/ shipping beginning October 20th. I should have a limited number of bars available at the Open House, so if you're coming and would like to pick up there, let me know and I'll set some aside for you. Place your order on my website.

Wishing you good tastes and happy hauntings,

When you say "there are several ways to order", maybe use a bulleted list for the different ways (I counted 3).

When you pick a mixed 6-pack, should your drop-down say "2 of each" not "1 of each"?

Sounds so yummy!!!

Tammy, do you make the ones with peanut butter separate from the others or no? I will order some either way, I just need to know so that I don't feed them to an unsuspecting friend.

I use different chocolate to dip the PB and non-PB ones, but there's still a high probability of cross contamination, so I would advise against feeding to allergic people.

Oh, coolness! Thanks! Jeff'll love it (chipotle is not my friend)

I'd like one each of the other two kinds, actually.
