Today is the last day of the 2012 Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Fair. This marks the end of the Summer for many of our seasonal friends. Our kids look forward to the fair all year. For the next twelve months I will be answering questions about the fair every time we pass the hall. The countdown is part of the fun.
This was a very successful fair for 7a Foods and our family. Our boys won ribbons for most of their entries. Our oldest (5 1/2) won top prize for his “Pie Tin Forest.” Our little guy won the Myra Houle Award given to the “boy or girl with the best overall Jr. Flower arrangement.” 7a won a blue ribbon for our Chocolate brownies and reds in both the cookie and muffin categories. We spent hours at the fair every day eating, riding, playing games and visiting the animals in the barn.
Today I will compete in the Women’s Skillet Throw. I am sure to be one of the worst competitors but I am looking forward to doing it with my mom. She is a true fair lover. She and her sister have worked and played at the fair every year since they were born. I’m thankful they passed that obsession on to me and my cousins and now we’ve shared it with our kids.
See you next year!
Part of our mission at 7a foods is to hand select quality foodstuffs for our store. In staying true to our mission, we’d like to bring Not Your Sugar Mama’s into the spotlight and talk a little about raw chocolate and the women who make it.
Growing up, Bennett Coffey came to the Vineyard every summer. Lucky for us, Bennett made the island her permanent home three years ago. Since then she has earned a living teaching sailing and yoga, gardening, catering, and a one-night-gig working at a fine dining restaurant where she was not asked back after one too many wine glasses were broken.
From 2008-2009 Bennett attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City. During her time there an alumnae gave a lecture on the benefits of raw chocolate and passed out free samples. Bennett was hooked. “They were delicious,” she remembers. “And I felt different after eating it.”
It turns out, chocolate, when not mixed with dairy and sugar, is one of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet. It is also remarkably rich in magnesium, which balances brain chemistry, combats depression and builds strong bones. Eating chocolate in it’s raw form diminishes appetite, enhances relaxation and promotes better sleep. Upon learning all this, Bennett wanted to share the good news, that chocolate can be good for you!
Bennett began by making chocolate for family and friends as gifts. The positive response from those lucky taste-testers prompted Bennett to try out new recipes, experiment with different ingredients and ultimately secure a commercial kitchen space, and then, with the help of a friend, Kyleen Keenan, Not Your Sugar Mama’s was born.
Recently, Bennett and Kyleen opened a small chocolate factory in the Tisbury Marketplace (next to Rocco’s pizza). Don’t worry if you cannot get to Vineyard Haven because Not Your Sugar Mamas is currently sold in 50 locations in the New England Area, including 7a Foods.
Cheers to healthy chocolate and stay tuned to the 7a Foods blog for more profiles on our specialty products and the great people who make them.
Look for Not Your Sugar Mamas chocolate bars in our refrigerator!
