The Spotlight: Charlotte Chocolate Company

This company creates delectable chocolate treats for any occasion from bridal showers to corporate gifts. The company can create custom designs (think: company logo) and written messages on chocolates (think: "It's a Boy" for baby showers).
From the horse's mouth (i.e. their website):
Our unique signature chocolates are handmade, custom-shaped, delectable gems that delight the most discriminating palate. Individually wrapped in beautiful foils, they make an elegant gift (that you might not be able to part with!). This artisanal chocolate is crafted in the vintage French method, slowly and with premium cacao beans.
Fun Facts about chocolate:
  • Cacao is a tree, native to South America, whose seeds are the source of cocoa and chocolate.
  • Cacao beans were so valuable in ancient Mexico that the Maya and subsequent Aztec and Toltec civilizations used them as a means of currency to pay for commodities and taxes.
  • In the 17th Century, the first recorded case of “Death by Chocolate” occurred.
  • In 1875, Milk Chocolate was introduced. After over eight (8) years of experimentation, Daniel Peter of Switzerland created this concoction.
  • The original 3 Musketeers Bar of the 1930s had three parts: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.
