Chocolove bars


Boulder, CO

Chocolove was founded in 1994 when founder and owner Timothy Moley discovered his passion for chocolate while living abroad. He started Chocolove when he returned to the States and today the company sells chocolate bars in 24 flavors with a romantic twist: each chocolate bar wrapper has a romantic poem is written on it. Today, the company employs about 50 people.

Learn more about Chocolove and dozens of other NCA members as we work to document the hundreds of stories that comprise the U.S. candy industry.
