Mason Becomes a "Sweet Spot"
Wednesday, November 24, 2010 • Posted November 24, 2010

This weekend’s "Light the Town" night attendees are in for a sweet surprise: COCOA LUNA, Mason’s new chocolate shop will be holding its grand opening on Saturday, November 27 from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. All are welcome to come by and savor some delicious hand-crafted fudges and truffles, toffees and caramels.

In keeping with their former tradition of providing and producing original chocolate confections, the new store is bringing its well deserved reputation of excellence to the north-west side of the square. The store is located at 244 Ft. McKavitt and will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the Holiday Season.

Before moving to Mason County, Craig Conlee was the owner and originator of Brazos Country Foods, purveyor and creator of fine, popular Texas products such as Red Eye Bloody Mary Mix, the original Texas Black Eyed Pea Dip, Green Envy and Lonesome Red as well as being the manufacturer and private label provider for many of Neiman Marcus’s well know Red River brand products. Conlee’s wife, Carol, branched out into the confectionary business introducing hand crafted chocolate products into 33 Neiman’s stores under separate label. And with that, a new stream of consciousness for chocolate was born. Today, the chocolate is only sold in right here in Mason. Chocolate selections include infused truffles, European chocolate, chocolate from The Americas, caramel clusters, crisp toffees and several varieties of smooth, creamy fudge. All items are beautifully packaged and available for take-away or for enjoying on site in the COCOA LUNA Chocolate Salon.

For more information, or for purchase and shipping of beautiful Holiday gift sets and gift certificates, as well as private chocolate tasting parties, contact COCOA LUNA at 325.347.6464 or TRES LUNAS RESORT 325.347.6480
