I don't know how things are where you live, but around here, CSA's (Community Supported Agriculture) are all the rage. Basically you pay a certain amount to a local farm and all summer long you get boxes of delicious local produce. We've been trying to get into one, but they've been booked for two years in a row.
What does this have to do with candy, you ask? Well, check out this cool idea: Laughing Moon Chocolates, located in Stowe, Vermont (a little slice of heaven in New England) has created a CSCS: a Community Supported Chocolate Subscription. They're trying to raise money to paint their building so they've come up with this cool idea. For $250, you get a coupon worth $275 which you can spend on any of their yummy chocolates, truffles, fudge, candy canes and more. Check out their website at www.laughingmoonchocolates.com.
