Side Dishes: New chocolate shop in Montpelier

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.

How likely are you to judge a beer by its packaging?

  • I'd never!
  • What's inside is most important, but I may take an extra look at a cool can or bottle.
  • If I see a flashy can, I might be more likely to buy it.
  • Can and bottle art definitely has an impact on my purchasing.
  • I can't resist a good-looking bottle.
