The skill that goes into this chocolate making is obvious from the moment it touches your tongue. Quality chocolate and sophisticated flavors show how much the creator(s) care about the blending of flavors. We've tried several truffles, and will absolutely be back. My son (age...More

This is a small, but terrific chocolate shop that offers single origin bean-to-bar chocolate bars in beautiful wrapping, as well as lovely chocolate bonbons, truffles, and confections.

They bring in cocoa beans, roast them and brew their own chocolate combinations. Turtles are very popular and you should call ahead to reserve them. Beside the bite size chocolates, they have only one flavor of ice cream, chocolate what else. October 2017 $2.50/piece $10/4

If you want to taste a "little bit of heaven," treat yourself to a box of Zaks' chocolate...better than any other chocolate I have ever tasted ...including European chocolates. Barbara Huckemeyer

Description
Zak's Chocolate is a local, award-winning small-batch craft chocolate maker (we make 100% of our own chocolate in-house from cocoa beans) and an artisan chocolatier. We love chocolate and we love the story and amazing flavors of fine cacao varieties. We have been making chocolate as a hobby for years and are excited to share our passion with you. At Zak's we roast ethically sourced cocoa beans from around the globe and make our own single origin and house blend chocolate to use in bars, truffles, brownies, beverages and even award-wining ice cream. Everything is done by hand, from sorting cocoa beans to wrapping our bars. Each chocolate will taste different based on its origins and how we roast and refine to bring out unique flavor profiles. Like coffee and wine, each cocoa bean comes from a unique terroir that impacts its flavor. Visit us for a unique chocolate experience.
