Aunt Annie's to have ribbon cutting Wednesday at noon

There are 12 flavors of root beer at Aunt Annie's Kitchen, which opened Aug. 1 in the Teton Spectrum.
The Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce has six ribbon cuttings planned between now and the end of the month.

The first will be Wednesday at noon at Aunt Annie's Kitchen, 2631 S. 25th East, next to Cafe Sabor in the Teton Spectrum.

Visitors to the Snake River Roaring Youth Jam may have gotten a taste last week of their fudge and flavored popcorn when they were making samples available there. The business was opened Aug. 1 by John Crook, also the owner of Town and Country Gardens.

Crook said he got the idea from someone he met last year during a meeting in Chicago.

Two-thirds of the building's 1,200 square feet is devoted to kitchen space, the other third to retail space. There are close to 50 flavors of popcorn, 30 flavors of taffy, 12 flavors of fudge and 12 different brands of root beer.

On Friday at 11 a.m. the Chamber Ambassadors will take their big scissors to The Boot Barn, 1961 S. 25th East, then go at noon to Eagle Home Mortgage, 3040 E. 17th Street. The following Wednesday, Aug. 21, there will be two ribbon cuttings, the first at 3 p.m. at Jacob Grant Property Management, 1075 S. Utah Avenue, the second at 4:30 at The Celt, 398 West Broadway. The latter may seem a little belated, as The Celt is celebrating its first anniversary this month, but better late than never, right?

The last ribbon cutting will be Aug. 23 at 1 p.m. at Reflections Academy of Dance, 680 W. Broadway. It is owned and operated by LaNae Surerus, who also teaches at Eastern Idaho Technical College. For more information and a full class schedule, follow this link: http://reflectionsacademy.com/
