SPBH’s Folk Art Festival brings in vendors with many different items, including food, and one such vendor came to the 2018 event with a new taste adventure for the craft show.

Folk Art Coordinator Ada Linenbroker said Marvina Colvin with Mrs. C Chocolates brings many delights to the show including salted caramels, dipped pretzels, marshmallows, truffles in five flavors – peanut butter, coconut, almond, Oreo and cookie dough – and fudge in four flavors, including chocolate, chocolate pecan, butter pecan and maple pecan.

“Everyone was excited to learn Marvina and her sisters and family will again be selling her amazing goodies,” Linenbroker said. “I learned during our conversation Marvina was originally from Liberal and went through school from third grade to high school.”

Colvin moved with her husband to North Dakota in 2011 and then moved again to Mustang, Okla., where she works for schools in Yukon, Okla.

“She gets her love for chocolates and candies from her mother,” Linenbroker said. “When her mother passed away, she wanted to carry on the family tradition and used her mother’s many candy recipes to make her candy.”

Colvin’s first attempt at selling her chocolates was at an Oklahoma fundraiser and sold out in an hour and a half.

“With her first success under her belt, she decided to come home to Liberal and try the Folk Art Festival,” Linenbroker said. “With help from her sisters and husband, they built her first display and had an amazing show last year and were excited to come again this year.”

Linenbroker said for anyone who loves chocolate, Mrs. C Chocolates would make a great gift or stocking stuffer.

“Or if they are a chocoholic, this is the booth you will want to visit Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. or Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.,” she said.
