The Abel family has been in the chocolate industry for over 40 years, working everyday alongside a staff of talented artisan candy makers. Family & Chocolate are two core principles at Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company. We invite you to learn more about our company and how we do things below.
Where was the first retail store?
Our first retail store was in Saint Louis, Missouri on Chippewa St. on Route 66. Dan Abel Sr. and Rosalie worked the store from open to close everyday, making candies in a small kitchen that you could see through windows in the retail store. Today, although our manufacturing facility has moved to Pattison Ave, the original retail store still stands at 6740 Chippewa St. in Saint Louis, Missouri.
What are some of your top sellers?
Definitively our Caramels & Truffles! Whether you buy a box of caramels or one of our caramel bars, you cant go wrong with our family recipe - made with Cane Sugar, Fresh Whipping Cream, Butter and a hint of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. All of our caramels are made in antique copper kettles, just like they did 100 years ago! Our artisan truffles are made with fresh whipping cream & chocolate. The smooth ganache is dipped in chocolate and comes in many different fun flavors - such as Red Velvet Cake, German Chocolate Cake and Caramel Fudge Brownie!
Do you sell your products wholesale?
We sure do! Our products can be found in over 2,000 (yes...you read that right!) specialty store nationwide! Some of our key accounts include Dierbergs, Straubs, The Fresh Market, Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, Paradies Airport Gift Shops, World Market, Bed Bath & Beyond, Marianos, Tops, Giant, Giant Eagle - to name a few!

Do you offer factory tours?
(update 6/25/2020). Due to COVID-19 we have suspended our factory tours. Our factory tours have been a tradition in Saint Louis for nearly 10 years and we can't wait to get them open again. We will be sure to update our website when tours re-open.
What makes your chocolate special?
Chocolate is in our name three times, it's all we think about! Starting with the first cocoa beans from the Ivory Coast, Africa and slowly roasting them is crucial in making our premium chocolate. Our recipe has been one of the most carefully guarded secrets for over 40 years. We ONLY use premium Fair Trade Certified cocoa beans, Cane Sugar and nothing artificial. Our Milk Chocolate is 34% Cocoa and our Dark Chocolate is 54% Cocoa. We have won several awards over the years for our milk and dark chocolate - in fact, our TOP selling item in our retail stores is our CHOCOLATE BREAKUP !
Does the Abel family really work at the factory?
You better believe it! Each family member has a responsibility in the company. Co-Founders Dan Abel Sr. and Rosalie Abel handle the administrative side of the business while the Abel family children work operations, most of the time they are in the family working alongside the team - making candy, packing boxes, filling chocolate melters, mopping floor, no job is too big or too small! Working with this amazing team is what makes this company so SWEET! We pride ourselves in having the BEST TEAM IN CHOCOLATE and are honored to work alongside them everyday!
