Who makes the best American Chocolate?

Updated on March 11, 2012

Do You Love Chocolate?

Who makes the best AMERICAN chocolate?

This is not about Dark or Milk--chocolate, that is.

Sure, there are Dutch, Swiss, German, and Belgian chocolates with many famous European brand names; but who do you think makes the best American chocolate products?

It can be a "mom and pop" company in your hometown, or a big corporation. I don't care who you choose.

For example, my sister-in-law gives me a large chunk of chocolate every year for Christmas. However, she will not tell us who she buys it from!

Maybe someone out there in the WWW can register the name here for me!

Who makes the best chocolate in the USA?

Chocolate Trivia: Pirates Thought Chocolate Was Sheep Poop!

In 1579 pirates captured a ship bound for Spain. They found a dried, funny-smelling brown substance in the hold.

Thinking it was sheep poop, they set the ship on fire!

In their ignorance, they had torched a small fortune in cocoa beans.

From the book: Sweet! By Ann Love & Jane Drake

      I was on my way to get a cup of coffee and a chocolate covered donut, when I saw the word chocolate and had to drop in. My favorite chocolate is Ghirardelli - located in San Francisco. It's my first choice when giving gifts of chocolate.
