About Seattle Chocolate Company
Founded in 1991, Seattle Chocolates is a woman owned company headed by CEO and owner Jean Thompson, based in Seattle Washington. We at Seattle Chocolates believe that chocolate shouldn’t be bitter or over sweet. Without adding sugar to cover harsh flavor notes or tannins, we start with only the highest quality chocolate, carefully tempered to create a creamy, meltaway texture. As a result our truffles and truffle bars are always balanced and smooth, not cloying. We then search the globe for the finest ingredients to create unique but approachable flavor combinations that are 100% natural, crafted locally and Kosher certified. Seattle Chocolates is actively involved in supporting local non-profit organizations focused on women, children and cancer, such as Gilda’s Club Seattle and City of Hope. Specific products are dedicated to raising money to fight breast cancer. 100% of the profits from Survivor Chick and the Extreme Dark Chocolate bar go toward this effort. Seattle Chocolates products are sold in select retailers throughout the country, at Seattle Chocolates new retail store and online at
