Kalamazoo's only shop making hand crafted truffles and other confections exclusively from Fair Trade, organic certified chocolate. Chocolatier Dale Anderson's original recipes contain fresh local fruits, honey, and maple syrup. Vegan and gluten free...more
What’s left to say that others have not? I’m not a huge fan of chocolate, primarily because most of it is of poor quality and cloyingly sweet. The formative years for my palate were spent in Europe so my first exposures to chocolate were French...More

Thank you so much for your very kind review. As a child, Russel Stovers was the fancy chocolate our family reserved for special occasions. It was a revelation to me when I tasted my first fresh, hand made chocolate. It was a totally different (and...More

I'm so glad that we have treats that are safe for you to eat (and that you enjoy them). One of the benefits of selling chocolates that we make ourselves, is that we know exactly what goes into them. I'm glad that this...More
