How long does Chocolate last?

Our chocolate has a shelf life of well over 6 months. If your chocolate treat is made with apples, we suggest eating within a week. The popcorn and pretzels are best eaten within 2 weeks; although they are still edible, the popcorn will start to lose its crispness.
Be sure to store the chocolate properly. We do not recommend refrigeration or freezing. Simply store the product at room temperature (63-68*F) and keep away from direct sunlight or other sources of heating. Also remember to keep protected from strong odors (chocolate will absorb the odors from their surroundings).

What about Allergies?

Our kitchen may have cross-contamination in regards to gluten, soy and nut products. Although most of our chocolate does not contain nuts, it is manufactured in a kitchen using equipment that also handles products containing nuts, eggs, wheat flour, dairy, and soy.
We do not have any sugar-free or gluten-free products "at this time", but we are exploring some options.

 

When is your Chocolate Kitchen open?

We encourage you make an appointment. We only accept walk-ins when we have staff available to assist you and we are not in the middle of production. Currently we do not have a  store-front, almost all of our space is being used for making delectible goodies!
We do have our chocolate placed in several locations, and if you visit our Facebook page, you can get the most current info on that!

Is White Chocolate really Chocolate?

“White Chocolate” is not a chocolate at all because it contains no cocoa solids.  White Chocolate coating is a mixture of sugar, vegetable fat, milk and whey, with emulsifiers and flavoring.

The FDA mandates that in order to be called “chocolate”, the fat content of the cocoa product is limited to cocoa butter (the naturally-occurring fat of the cocoa bean) and dairy (milk) fat.
