As with all good stories, ours is a story about love.
When Jonathan and I were courting, he would leave small surprises for me to find at work, in my car, on my doorstep at home. These were not big things, just a flower, a note, a feather he found on a walk. For Valentine’s Day that year he wanted to do something special and he knew that I liked chocolate (who doesn’t?!). Being Jonathan, he couldn’t just go to the store and buy some; what’s special about that? So he decided to learn how to make truffles. On Valentine’s Day I went out to my car after work to find a single red rose and a box of the most wonderful chocolates I had ever tasted. Needless to say, I ended up marrying him, and he has been making chocolates ever since: truffles for Christmas presents; cakes for birthdays and weddings; cookies just because; any thing we can think of, as long as it has chocolate.
We live on the side of a mountain in
Water, chocolate and love… these are what we wanted to bring together when we created Winnipesaukee Chocolates and it is why we have chosen to donate 10% of our profits to work towards the preservation of the lake and the area surrounding it, to help make certain that that same spirit which drew us back and keeps us here, remains strong for many generations to come. It is also why we work with local suppliers wherever possible, and sell through locally owned and independently run stores, so you can know that each time you purchase one of our chocolates, you are helping to support a strong, vibrant and spirited community in the Lakes Region.
We hope you enjoy our chocolate, and please let us know what you think.
