ABOUT CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE COMPANY:
Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company is an award-winning chocolatier founded in St. Louis, Missouri. Prior to the opening in 1981, founder Dan Abel spent over a decade prior training with the finest chocolatiers in the world. His apprenticeship taught him everything there is to know about the art of crafting premium chocolates in small batches. Some of the recipes and techniques used today come from old time candy makers dating back to 1904.
The original candy kitchen is still in operation today at the headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri. The company has grown from one location to over a dozen retail stores, with the same time honored methods of old fashioned candy making. Old fashioned copper kettles mix the creamy caramels, crèmes and truffle centers that are then cut by hand after sitting on a chilling table. The centers are then enrobed by our meticulous chocolatiers, who inspect each piece before it leaves the candy kitchen. Most importantly, the chocolates consumed by customers are usually made the day they were purchased. There is nothing like a piece of chocolate the day it was made.
