Local Chocolate Company Makes It Big
Whoopi featured these amazing chocolates as one of her "Must-Have Items" on The View this week.William Dean Chocolates is an artisan chocolate company located in Largo. Our goal is to create miniature works of art by hand-painting and airbrushing chocolates with unique flavor combinations. We use only the best ingredients and everything is made in small batches to preserve our artisan nature.
The company has been in business just over a year and besides our retail location our chocolates are available at select Dean & Deluca stores. This fall William Dean Chocolates will be collaborating with Teavana, a gourmet tea company, to provide hand-painted chocolates infused with Teavana tea blends in all of their stores. In March 2008, William Dean Chocolates produced custom chocolates for Pope Benedict XVI’s visit.
