Five Things to Know About Chocolati Handmade Chocolate
Chocolati Handmade Chocolates began squashing sweets cravings in 2000. The company’s history, however, stretches back decades before that. Here are a few things to know before you chomp into one of their chocolaty treasures.
It was formerly known as Sutliff Candy & Promotions. That company was established in 1938, and is perhaps best-remembered for producing the gourmet “Habits” chocolates that were sold exclusively by Nordstrom in the early 1980s.
Christian Wong bought the company and changed its name in 2000. Equipped with a degree in business finance from Seattle University, Christian exited the corporate world after a few years to pursue his chocolaty ambitions.
All the chocolates are handmade with natural ingredients. It’s an old-fashioned process, sure, but it enables Chocolati to churn out multi-sensory treats that offer something special from the first bite to the aftertaste.
Chocolate-dipped fortune cookies are also available. Baked fresh and hand-dipped, these cookies can contain personalized fortunes, such as “You will reacquaint with an old friend” or “You are about to be pancaked by a cartoon anvil.”
Chocolati cafes are peppered across Seattle. At each location, skilled baristas craft custom blends of hot chocolate, mocha, and other chocolate-infused espresso beverages. You can also bite into the company’s handmade truffles and other decadent creations.
