Seattle Chocolates - Seattle Business

For Seattle Chocolates, one not-s-secret ingredient is charitable activity combined with social media. The purcahse price of every bar includes a food-bank donation - a practice that was augmented last year by the #chocolategives campaign to generate contributions.

Celebrate National PB&J Day Like a Grown-Up - Delish

An old-fashioned PB&J sandwich is always delicious (no matter your age), but here at Delish, we decided to celebrate National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day by spoiling ourselves with a more refined version, perfect for out adult palettes. Because that goes together than peanut butter and jelly? If the years have taught us anything, it's to coat that peanut butter and jelly in chocolate, of course.

Seattle Chocolates Truffle Bars - Chocolate Ratings

If you have been reading this site for years, you already know about Seattle Chocolates. I recently had a chance to sample some of their new bars and want to share my gustatory adventure with you.

Frankly, it was hard to taste all ten as once I tried the Peanut Praline with Glazed Quinoa I just wanted to focus on that crunchy, dark bar for as long as it lasted.

A Spooky Chocolate Bar - The Ultimate Chocolate Blog

Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to enjoy the spooky season than with a gourmet truffle bar designed for the occasion? "Devil's Delight" by Seattle Chocolate Company is a dark chocolate truffle bar with a peanut butter and crunchy pretzel centre, and it has a fun packaging design to boot. With all sorts of devilish, Halloween-related words printed all over the package, this chocolate bar makes me wish that Halloween would come sooner.

Drugstore Candy Madness - The Stranger

Probably the most "legit" of drugstore heart-shaped choco boxes is the Seattle Chocolates Pink Bubbly box I found at Bartell, which comes with extremely Seattle words worked into the paisley front design: "Woman Owned," "Non GMO," "Hand Packed with Love," "Kosher," "All Natural," and "Gluten Free."

Seattle Chocolates – Chocolate Truffle Bar – Perfect Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter – one of the things in life that you can’t (or at least I can’t) live without.

This is exactly what Seattle Chocolates did with this next gal.

Seattle Chocolates Lemon Ice Bar
Seattle, Wash.

Chocolate isn’t typically thought of as refreshing, but this new Lemon Ice bar from Seattle Chocolates really is—candy makers infuse the white chocolate truffle bar with pieces of old-fashioned lemon candy from Chicago. If white chocolate isn’t your thing, the Seattle chocolatiers also make a seasonal Campers’ S’mores bar, the perfect thing to drop in the kids’ summer camp bags. $3 for 2.5 ounces.

It might not be Christmas time, but Seattle Chocolate's Hot Buttered Rum Milk Chocolate Truffle bar is certainly getting me into the season. I love hot buttered rum (the best I have had is available seasonally at The Duke of Perth in Chicago) and this creamy, rich candy bar brings to mind the cold afternoons in front of the Duke's warm fire.

Seattle Chocolates: Assorted Chocolate Truffles - Chocolate Ratings Blog

Just as thousands of artists have used the same paints to achieve wildly varying results, chocolatiers can use the same ingredients to create completely different products. This occurred to me as I tucked into a bag of assorted truffles from Seattle Chocolates. I had recently written about their truffle bars and erroneously assumed these would be very similar, but smaller. I underestimated their vision. They may use the same fillings and couverture, but the results are very different.
