Herma's News - Hearts and Love at Herma's

Herma’s News – Hearts and Love at Herma’s

It isn’t possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.  – E.M. Forster

Dear Customers,

Herma’s is looking quite festive these days as we await the holiday of chocolate, romance, and hearts. Find our store filled with flowers and wrapped gift boxes of red and pink. What better way to celebrate love than with foods. Below is a tasting of something being offered that would make the perfect treat for breakfast on Valentine’s Day.

Enjoy French Toast with Herma!

Saturday, February 4th, 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the Studio, complimentary

Herma will be making French-toast with our Panettone. Drizzled with maple syrup, topped with cream, and sprinkled with Fraktal Chocolate – oh how sinfully delicious! Get your tasting of this special treat on Saturday in the studio.

Coming Soon Next Saturday, February 11th, Herma will be providing more complimentary foods to inspire for Valentine’s Day. Details will be provided in next week’s newsletter.

Valentine’s Day at Herma’s

We are not at a loss for gift ideas this Valentine’s Day. For fun, Herma, Gordon, and Taco have all included their input as to what would make a fabulous gesture for your loved one this holiday.

Traditional Choices…

Wrapped Gift Certificates

Easy to pick up and go. Adorned with flowers and wrapped so beautifully, your loved one won’t even want to open it.

Godiva and Fraktals Chocolates

You’ll never go wrong with chocolate unless your loved one is allergic. In that case, our shortbread cookies are mmm…oh so delicious. Also, don’t forget to remind your loved one about Valentine’s Day Rule #1 – All diets are called off on Valentine’s Day. So go ahead and indulge.

Herma’s Swooning Hearts Day Suggestion


UNO de 50 Jewelry from Spain – A necklace, earrings, or bracelets from our latest collection will certainly make your loved one swoon.

Portus Cale Soaps and Candles, from Portugal – Treat your loved one to the luxury of truly amazing fragrances, both masculine and feminine. Also, good news! ACCA KAPPA has returned to Herma’s – a beloved line of unisex fragrances, body butter, and deodorant sticks!

Taco’s V-Day Celebration Suggestion

Taco’s mind turns to celebration and fine drink when he considers Valentines Day. He suggests purchasing champagne glasses to go with a bottle of bubbly. I like the way this man thinks! If you are a teetotaler, however, Taco suggests giving your loved one our Tea Forte Chocolate Tea in heart-shaped box.

Gordon’s Food is Sexy Suggestion

Sexy Foods is Gordon’s answer to Valentine’s Day fun! Enjoy the oozing goodness of chocolate fondue on Valentine’s Day. Dip strawberries, pineapple slices, bananas, cherries, and even marshmallows into the dripping, hot chocolate. He also thinks hot gooey cheeses would be sinfully delightful as well.  We do carry a great selection of Fondue Pots. Why wait to enjoy? Come to Herma’s and have your fondue fun today.

Cheese Department

Good news for all you lovers of cheese! Some lovely cheeses will be arriving Friday, February 10th, just in time for Valentine’s Day. These include Chateau de Bourgogne, Regal de Bourgogne (with strawberries and blueberries), and even a heart-shaped cheese. She and Margaret suggest enjoying an assortment of rich, creamy cheeses this Valentine’s Day. Add a glass of fine wine or bubbly and you’ll have yourself a party. How fun!

This weekend we are introducing a new cheese to fight those winter blues.

Bellavitano’s Citrus Ginger

It will be sampled this Saturday. Bellavitano’s cheeses are made in Wisconsin by the Sartori’s, an Italian family who produce their cheeses in the old-world style. We also carry their Bellavitano Expresso, Bellavitano Merlot, and Bellavitano Balsamic.

No need to travel to the South Pacific to be immersed in the flavors of citrus, ginger, and a hint of sesame.  Escape with this creamy BellaVitano cheese and savor its delightful lingering spice.

The Village Kitchen Weekly Special – starts Thursday

25% off Butter Chicken (large entrée, 800 grams) was $21.95, NOW $16.50, while supply lasts 

We hope you will come to visit us in the coming days and especially on Saturday to taste Herma’s special Panettone French Toast.
