Chocolate Gourmet Chocolates was founded by a husband and wife team who love chocolate.
Michele, otherwise known as “Chocolate”, developed a taste for gourmet chocolates after she married her husband David, otherwise known as “The Gourmet”, who has had a 35-year love affair with chocolate. As they traveled across the country in search of regional gourmet chocolate manufacturers, they were fortunate enough to stumble upon some exceptional chocolate makers that were virtually unknown outside their regional marketplace.
This gave Chocolate and The Gourmet an idea: Why not create a website that features these lesser-known gourmet chocolate makers to help other chocolate lovers get the opportunity to experience the fine specialty chocolates that they would most likely never have known about. The philosophy is simple: Find the best gourmet chocolates made in America. Prepare sampler packages from the best in show from each chocolate category. Treat people to a wide variety of gourmet chocolate offerings. Let people decide on their own which ones they like best.
From this idea, Chocolate Gourmet Chocolates was born. The process moved forward with careful deliberation. The first task was to narrow down the product offerings to a manageable number of categories. In the end, we decided to feature five categories: Chocolate Bars, Chocolate Truffles, Chocolate Confections, Boxed Chocolates and our Chocolate Gourmet Chocolates specialty, Chocolate Samplers.
