Now Available: Croc Pops!!


Alexis and the delicious Croc Pop
The Cotton Tree Chocolate factory in Punta Gorda has made a donation to the ACES founders, now relocated to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. After the devastating loss of their sanctuary and home last month, Vince and Cherie Rose (founders of ACES) have been working towards rebuilding their lives and of course, to continue their work with the American Crocodiles.
Helping the couple is Cotton Tree Chocolate Factory, a company based out of Punta Gorda. They have created the fun Croc Pops – chocolates in the shapes of crocodiles – which will be sold in stores in Punta Gorda and Ambergris Caye. The sale proceeds will go towards the rebuilding of ACES on Ambergris Caye. Juli Puryear of Cotton Tree Chocolate Factory was in the San Pedro Sun office dropping off some delicious treats for the staff, along with Cherie Rose and ACES friend Alexis.
The Croc Pops will be sold for $2.50 a piece, and again, all proceeds go towards the rebuilding of ACES.
