LEMONADE:  Black Lives Matter. We designed this piece with PEACE in mind. We pastry chefs love making lemonade out of lemons…and everybody likes lemonade! Think “Beverly Hills Hotel”…..we even used the font from that hotel, designed by Black architect Paul Williams, in the 1940’s.We reversed MILKWEED on the label because we as a country need to re-engineer our thought processes and systems when it comes to racism.  We will be donating $1 per piece sold to selected charities and movements, starting with “Black Lives Matter.” We understand this is an important movement and time to be conscious of that with our thoughts and actions as we change what needs to be changed.Lemonade is a yogurt-coated truffle filled with lemon-vanilla caramel.Gluten-Free
