Cacao is so complex in flavor that we want to let it shout loud and proud. That is why we do less to bring you more. We stone grind cacao beans into perfectly unrefined, minimally processed chocolate with bold flavor and texture, unlike anything you have ever tasted. Taza founder Alex Whitmore took his first bite of stone ground chocolate while traveling in Oaxaca, Mexico. He was so inspired by the rustic intensity that he decided to create a chocolate factory back home in Somerville, MA. Alex apprenticed under a molinero in Oaxaca to learn how to hand-carve granite mill stones to make a new kind of American chocolate that is simply crafted, but seriously good. To source the best cacao for Taza Chocolate, we cultivate direct relationships with growers and pay a premium over the Fair Trade price. We pioneered the first third-party certified Direct Trade cacao sourcing program in the U.S., to ensure transparency and fairness for all. At the Taza Chocolate Bar, located in the Boston Public Market, visitors can watch as cacao isground on-site in stone mills to craft fresh hot and iced chocolate drinks. Taza’s full product lineis also available for purchase. In addition to our Direct Trade Cacao Certification, Taza is Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Gluten Free, and OU Kosher Pareve. Taza Chocolate is also dairy free, soy free and vegan.

Whether you\’re an American on vacation, or you\’re planning a holiday in the United States, Boston, Massachusetts is a city that you might want to visit.

It doesn\’t have the Broadway plays and glitzy shopping of New York City down the coast, but this city is steeped in United States history… as in the “Boston Tea Party” steeped in history. OK Enough for bad puns.

It is one of the oldest cities in the United States…. founded in 1630 by the pilgrims from England if you really want to know. (Not the pilgrims that come over on the Mayflower to Plymouth, by the way.)

During the United States Revolution several major battles took place here… the Battle of Bunker Hill is one of the most famous. The Battles of Lexington and Concord were fought nearby. It was from the Old North Church that Paul Revere took his famous “midnight ride” crying the warning of the approach of the British….. As the poem goes,

“…One if by land, and two if by sea;

And I on the opposite shore will be,

Ready to ride and spread the alarm

Through every Middlesex village and farm…..”

Walk the Freedom Trail. This two and a half mile route will help you get acquainted with the city and efficiently visit many of the city\’s historic landmarks. Allow yourself at least three hours for this tour… a full day to really see everything would be better. If walking isn\’t for you, there are trolley tours that will let you hop on and hop off at the sites.

Stroll through the historic Public Garden. It is adjacent to the Boston Common and is the nation\’s oldest botanical garden. Ride one of the famous Swan Boats… Locals and visitors have been riding in them during the summer months since 1877.

See the Faneuil Hall marketplace… also known as Quincy market. For over 250 years, the marketplace has played an integral role in the life of this city\’s residents. This indoor-outdoor market is still a great place for shopping and dining.

Eat in the Union Oyster House, the city\’s oldest restaurant. Walk through the “burying grounds”, the cemeteries. You can find the graves of several famous early Americans.

Visit the colleges and universities… there are several in the area. Harvard, just across the Charles River in Cambridge might be the most famous. It is the oldest institution of higher learning in the U.S. You can also visit, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Brandeis University among a couple of dozen others nearly as well known.

In the summertime, sit on the green along the Charles River and listen to the Boston Pops play in the Hatch Shell… a wonderful free concert. If you\’re there for the July 4th concert you\’ll hear Tchaikovsky\’s 1812 Overture complete with cannons and fireworks. (You\’ll need to be there plenty early for that popular concert!)

Boston has great museums, and there are more across the river in Cambridge around Harvard. There are sports teams for baseball, basketball, football and ice hockey fans, and there is always shopping.

It\’s a great starting point to explore the USA\’s New England states. With all it has going for it, give Boston a look when you\’re making travel plans.

In what’s become its own holiday tradition, Boston Pack and Ship, a small load shipping specialist, donated 300 boxes, tape and other packing supplies to Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops for its annual Christmas Care Packages drive.

Cape Cod Cares For Our Troops is a non-profit organization started in 2005 by then 12-year-old Dylan DeSilva of Brewster, Mass. Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops sends care packages to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan on a weekly basis. For the holidays, Cape Cod Cares For Our Troops holds a special Christmas Care Package drive. This year’s goal is to send 1000 care packages to U.S. soldiers overseas.

“We’ve been involved with Cape Cod Cares For Our Troops for a few years now. It’s one of those causes where it’s never a question of whether or not we can help, but how much,” said Joe Fell, co-owner of Boston Pack and Ship.

In addition to Boston Pack and Ship’s donation, the small load shipping specialist recruited its vendor, Collin Box & Supply, of Easton, Mass., to sell the remainder of the boxes needed by Cape Cod Cares For Our Troops, 800, at cost.

“We receive a number of these requests, almost on a weekly basis, and it’s an easy one to say yes to,” said Paul Murphy of Collin Box & Supply. “My daughter is with the Air Force and will soon be deployed overseas. I’m grateful for the efforts of groups like Cape Cod Cares For Our Troops for their support of the men and women overseas serving our country.”

Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops will host a packing party for the Christmas Care Packages on November 21 and 22 at the Trowbridge Tavern, 100 Trowbridge Road in Bourne. People interested in volunteering to wrap, can call (508) 896-6424 or (774) 216-9052 or send an e-mail to

Checks can be sent to: Cape Cod Cares for the Troops, 1831 Long Pond Rd.  Brewster, MA  02631.

“We’d like to thank Boston Pack and Ship, Collin Box & Supply and all our other sponsors and contributors for their generosity,” said DeSilva, now 16. “One thousand care packages is a mighty ambitious goal, but with the help of all our volunteers and contributors, we can and will accomplish this mission.”
