Andrew Shotts took his love for chocolate from dream to reality—and for that we are all grateful. His chocolates are based on traditional flavors and textures and presented in simple squares of chocolate confection, decorated with colorful, eye-catching designs.

Our Interview with Andrew Shotts

What motivated you to open a chocolate business?

It was dream I had since I went to work in France in 1996.

Did you have any formal training in chocolate making?

I trained as an Executive Pastry Chef.

Where do you get your inspiration for the different flavors and textures you include in your chocolates?

Inspiration comes from imagination…I just think of two flavors that really go well together.

If you had to describe your product line in a couple of sentences, what would that be?

Hand-crafted, well-thought-out artisanal chocolate made with innovative techniques, while respecting classic methods, and using the best ingredients I can find.

What is your personal favorite out of all the products you make and why?

That is a love/hate thing: chocolate-covered caramel popcorn. I love it, but hate it, because when I start eating it, I cannot stop…I can eat two pounds in a day EASILY!
