The Chocolate Box
As the demand for local produce continues to grow, The Chocolate Box has taken the next step and emphasized local confections. The storefront’s shelves feature products from a Who’s Who of Seattle chocolatiers and winemakers, including milk chocolate from Fran’s, vegan chocolate from Theo, sugar-free chocolate from Spokandy, and boutique wines from the northwest wine region. The staff wants customers to feel as informed as possible about the products they purchase, so they schedule informative events such as truffle-making workshops, hot-chocolate tastings, and wine-and-chocolate experiences in the city.
