(Originally published October 5th on the CTV Atlantic website) A Cape Breton entrepreneur never imagined her sweet treats would bring her closer to the late Tom Petty.
It was at a Petty concert in Halifax in May 2012 when chocolatier Jill Franklin made sure the first-ever batch of her new sea salt caramel chocolates made their way backstage. A Cape Bretoner, Tom Petty, and their connection through a box of chocolates
Attention: Excessive use of chocolate can lead to hysterical bouts of euphoria, and uncontrollable finger licking. Use caution whilst indulging in said chocolate. Also, this... In a 9-year Swedish study of more than 31,000 women, those who ate one or two servings of dark chocolate each week cut their risk for heart failure by as much as a third. Heck yea. Chocolate for the win!
