Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company in St. Louis
I visited the Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company in St. Louis recently—an American chocolate factory. From a single store in 1981, the family business now boasts six retail locations. The 30,000 sq. ft. chocolate factory, opened in 2012, was purpose-built to allow factory tours. And, in 2014, the company began sourcing 100% Fair Trade Certified cocoa and cane sugar. While ingredients may be sourced from around the world, the chocolate-craft occurs right here in St. Louis!
Visiting the Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company in St. Louis
The St. Louis factory (and store) is located at 5025 Pattison Avenue, north and west of the I-44 and Kingshighway. Look for the big sign, which faces the freeway.
Once inside the store, I quickly located the door to the factory floor and took a peek through the small window. On Black Friday 2017, only a few workers were working the factory floor. But that was OK, because my visit was all (chocolate-buying) business!
Shopping for Chocolates
In the store, there were plenty of goodies, so it took a while to select my gifts. The gold-wrapped Artisan Truffles caught my eye.
I enjoyed checking out the Chocolate Library. Sadly, there didn’t seem to be any chocolate mystery novels, so I moved on . . . I may have to reconsider the Dark Chocolate Blood Orange Caramel bar for Halloween.
The Santa Ornaments, White Chocolate Christmas Tree Pretzels, and Egg Nog Artisan Truffles called my name next.
A few Santa’s helpers served customers with chocolate-covered specialty delectables from the display case. My visit came to an end with a trip to the nearby cash register. Much to my surprise, a few extra treat bags were added to my haul, presumably part of a Black Friday deal!
All in all, a highly successful Christmas chocolate shopping trip indeed. I highly recommend a visit if you’re a fan of all things chocolate, chocolate, and, oh yes, chocolate!
