We always think we make the best chocolate you can buy; if you’re not proud of your product you probably shouldn’t be in business. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a delight to have your pride and joy recognized as outstanding by others. Recently, four of our bars received medals in the International Chocolate Awards for the Americas which is one of, if not the most, prestigious awards program in the chocolate world. Strawberry Rhubarb Pie won bronze, Galactic Gelato and TCHunky TCHOtella won silver, and Mokaccino won gold. We’d like to thank the judges and grand jury of the competition for the tremendous honor – it means a lot to us. Our gold and silver winners will continue forward into the World final, which is judged in the fall.
We’ve won awards at the International Chocolate Awards before, though we had to take last year off because we were moving the factory when the competition was due. But as each year passes, a flood of talented makers falls in love with chocolate as a medium and more and more fine chocolate bars enter the market. We’re proud to continue leading in the American chocolate making world, and feel that awards like this validate our commitment to the art and science of chocolate making.
Why does our chocolate win awards? Well, in a word, we’re obsessed. Obsessed with quality, taste, flavor, and the experience of eating a chocolate bar that blows your mind. We won’t send it out the door until we’re convinced it’s among the best things you’ve ever tried. And that notion of “best” isn’t only about how it tastes (although that’s critical). It’s also about hands-on involvement and attention to detail through the entire process from farm to bar. That’s obsession you can taste. Go ahead – try our award winners if you haven’t already. We think you’ll find them as obsessively delicious as we do.
