What does Chocolatay mean?
The name comes from a play of two words: our oldest son’s nickname “Tay” given to him at birth by his late great-grandmother and the Spanish pronunciation of the word chocolate (chock-o-LAHT-tey), which celebrates Danielle’s Dominican heritage.
What is your product shelf life? How should they be stored?
Our chocolates and confections are free of artificial preservatives, so the sooner you eat them the tastier! Our products should be stored at room temperature, away from strong odors and sunlight. For specific product shelf life questions please contact us.
How do you deal with allergens? Are your chocolates vegan?
We have vegan treats in our online shop and also locally at these locations. Our dark chocolate is not suitable for individuals with milk allergies, our chocolates are made and molded in the same equipment; both our milk and dark chocolate are peanut free and soy free.
