Preece Designer Chocolate hand-dips and drizzles its traditional, truffle, and signature-flavored fillings in rich chocolate made from cocoa beans harvested by farmers on the Ivory Coast. Caramel coats triple-chocolate nougat in the Chocopolitan ($0.95 each; $7.50 for 8), and the Bordeaux ($0.95 each; $7.50 for 8) encases brown sugar buttercream into a chocolaty sarcophagus befitting of sweet-toothed royalty. Whereas the Blue Velvet melds blue cheese and chocolate ($0.95 each; $7.50 for 8), the Velvet Hammer piles caramel, coffee, and chocolate atop one another ($0.95 each; $7.50 for 8). Additionally, salty and sweet flavors meld in potato chips smothered in chocolate ($6.50/6 oz.) offer a tastier treat than a peanut-butter-and-jellyfish sandwich.

Bosnia Express brings the flavors of Bosnia to Boise through lunches and nightcaps alike. Before the restaurant undergoes its nocturnal transformation into a nightclub and neighborhood bar, cooks layer hearty paninis with thinly sliced meats and vegetables, as well as season gyro meat that’s ready to nestle inside pita pockets. In addition to making fresh sandwiches and pouring drinks, they stock products from overseas, such as Bosnian, Turkish, and Mediterranean snack cookies, pickled vegetables, hair products, and Pavlovic Ointment, whose lid automatically opens whenever a bell rings.
Sallie, the current owner of Hollywood Market Yoga, found an 112-year-old building and converted it into a yoga studio. She kept the market's mantra, "Happiness is spoken here," for her yoga studio. At Hollywood Market Yoga, muscles stretch a little deeper. Heated studios allow muscles and connective tissue to warm up slowly, which can result in deeper stretches and less risk of injury during signature Vinyasa and Bikyasa flow classes. Hollywood Market Yoga also offers Yin classes, a relaxing style of yoga that focuses on stretching. As muscles breathe sighs of relief, sweat drips from pores, allowing the body to flush toxins out of the system during purifying poses.
