I was on my way to Fish King
, driving up Verdugo and I saw a chocolate shop so I stopped out of curiosity. Very cool find.
A brief history gathered from the website: This is a family run business that was first started as a bakery in the Ukraine back in 1910. By 1935, they moved to Tehran, Iran. In 1962 they started getting into chocolate making. And in 2003 they openned up shop in Southern California. The chocolates here are made in their own chocolate factory in Van Nuys. Willy Wonka step aside...
If you're a chocoholic, this is paradise. The display case is stacked full of beautiful chocolates of all shapes and flavors. It is almost too much choice! I got a handful of random selections and they were all awesome - but I can't remember what flavors they were. And the prices seemed low to me.
They have an attached cafe and some seating so its a great place to stop by for a sweet pick-me-up.
