The Chocolate Theory, a wonderful adventure in taste…

My name is Sofia and I am the master chocolatier behind your computer screen.
I am a proud stay at home mother, the wife to a research scientist and an expert in all things chocolate, caramel and fudge.

Prior to opening The Chocolate Theory in 2014, I was the Chef for a local candy store.
I spent years learning the tricks of this culinary trade, but what always made me the happiest was seeing other people smile when they came into the store. They were immediately transformed, no matter who they were or what they were doing previously, and the positive energy was invigorating.
I have always had an entrepreneurial streak so it was a natural transition to create my own chocolate company.
There is something about chocolate that is simply intoxicating. The deep flavor, the distinctive aroma, and the unique color and texture all combine to form something truly magical. When I was a child I was blessed with a real cocoa tree in our backyard. My childhood curiosity was immediately sparked once I realized it was the precursor to my beloved treats. I devoured books and researched the origins of chocolates flavor profiles and I never stopped learning.
The name The Chocolate Theory actually stems from some of my adult research. I had the opportunity to participate in chocolate tastings for some of America’s most well-known confectionaries and I wanted to put that theory of excellence to practice.

At The Chocolate Theory we always provide our customers with only the highest quality, artisanal handmade fudge using fresh ingredients.
We always pack our products in original, eco-friendly and reusable containers.
We are dedicated to good chocolate, good practices and a good environment because we want happy people and the conservation of all those cocoa trees that might someday inspire another small child with a book and a dream.

Enjoy life, and have our chocolate.
