continued Their chocolate store will offer handmade chocolates, toffees and marshmallows, and they will all be made on location. Woloszyn said they will use locally grown ingredients whenever possible.
“We will be the only shop in the area that makes their product on location,” he said. “Customers will actually be able to see chocolate being made, as our kitchen in entirely visible. We will be able to tell our customers the origin of all of our ingredients.”
On top of the unique flavors of chocolates, Woloszyn plans to introduce to the area several unique flavors of marshmallows, such as key lime, coffee and mango.
“Even the shapes of the chocolates are unique,” he said. “Where else in the area will one be able to see a caramel frog, or a Buddha filled with chai tea, or even a classic such as a chocolate turtle that looks just like a turtle? Our chocolate will not only taste unique, but can certainly be called artisan quality. “
And it will be fresh.
“We will not use any preservatives in our chocolate, and therefore our product will always be fresh,” he said.
Lune Chocolat will offer seasonal varieties as well, starting with apple pie and pumpkin flavored chocolate this fall.
