Dale never ceases to amaze me with all the differbt combinations of truffles he makes. If that is too much chocolate for you he also has many other types of chocolate products he makes in house. Everything is fair trade and responsibly sourced. We love the dipped fruit!

How thoughtful! He demonstrates true passion for his craft and goes the extra mile! I love supporting businesses like this; those who care about the future of this... More

Received these truffles as a Christmas present and they are absolutely delicious. We tasted an assortment of them and they were all outstanding so we do not have a favorite. The truffles are from organic chocolate which I cannot tell the difference but have to say, they are really fine chocolate!

A student brought me a lovely little box of these scrumptious treats. They were only made better by the back-story of the chocolatier. This is a business I can get behind!

The person that assisted us was even kind enough to make a map of the flavors in the box since I got an assortment. I will... More

I was in Kalamazoo visiting family and they took me by the shop. I could not believe all the unusual flavor combinations available. The flavors were out of this world and I am already planning to order some for the holidays. The employees are great and I love the fact that they have a purpose and are fair trade. Highly... More
