Crave Artisan Chocolate has created a signature chocolate flavor to honor ZACH Theatre’s 85th Anniversary.  “Diamond Crunch” Vanilla and Espresso Chai Chocolate Bark was inspired by the vibrant community of Austin along with involvement of ZACH Theatre’s spirit and ties to Austin. Krystal Craig, owner and founder of Crave Artisan Chocolate worked to create a taste that captures Austin’s on-the-go, vibrant and playful, but also casual, laid back and versatile attitude to express the similar feeling one experiences when attending a ZACH Theatre production.

The notes in this blend of vanilla, chai and espresso represent these shared characteristics with the stronger playful aspect coming from the sugary crunch as a nod to ZACH’s 85th Diamond Anniversary.  “Diamond Crunch” Vanilla and Espresso Chai Chocolate Bark is available now exclusively at ZACH Theatre through the 85th Season.

Craig explains why she crafted this exclusive flavor for ZACH Theatre, “As an Austin native, having the opportunity to commemorate ZACH’s special 85th anniversary means a lot. Working with other local businesses fuels inspiration in me to develop new flavors and chocolate products. Additionally, and more importantly to me, ZACH Theatre is a staple Austin landmark I know and appreciate after growing up and experiencing the way this city has grown and changed.”

Commercially producing chocolate since 2005, Krystal Craig was born and raised in Austin. Named as a “Rising Star of Chocolate” by the Austin Chronicle, “Top Pick” by Austin Monthly and highly regarded by ZAGAT’s landing her name on multiple lists, Krystal seemed like the perfect person to capture the essence of ZACH’s Anniversary Season. Working with chocolate encompasses the full scope of Krystal’s passions in art, business, people and health. Just like theatre, chocolate is a craft requiring a collaboration of patience, practice and developed technique. It supports creative drive while providing challenge, and comes with the best end result of making smiles.

ZACH’s 85th Anniversary Season opens with the musical gem Singin’ in the Rain, based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film in special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Inc.  Singin’ in the Rain will play ZACH’s Topfer Theatre September 27 – October 29, 2017 under the direction of Abe Reybold, Associate Artistic Director of ZACH Theatre with musical direction by Allen Robertson and choreography by Dominique Kelly.
