Jean Thompson Truffles
A passion for chocolate resulted in the creation of these all-natural artisan truffles. Made from the finest European Chocolate and 40% cream they combine intense flavors with arresting style. A thin shell provides an elegant foil to delicious ganache filling.
Sweet Shop USA Handmade Chocolates
AJ's Boulangerie proudly carries Sweet Shop USA handmade chocolates. Sweet Shop USA was established in 1972, in Fort Worth, Texas. Today, the company is located in Mount Pleasant, Texas. We are a family-owned producer of hand-made chocolates.
From our inception, our company has sought and continually trained individuals with experience in the art of hand-crafting chocolates. We are dedicated to preserving the time-consuming craft created locally by Martha Washington Chocolates some 75 years ago.
Sweet Shop USA has received national recognition for creating over 100 varieties of handmade pieces including various Truffles, Famous Brags®, Nuts and Chewies, and our signature Fudge Love®. Our success is credited to our emphasis on natural ingredients, including pure butter, fresh whipping cream, and the finest quality chocolate.
Here at our factory, the process of producing gourmet chocolate begins by blending the all-natural ingredients, then simmering the mixture in large kosher copper kettles. A machine's work can never match the product of one of our hand-making experts.
These chocolatiers demonstrate intricate care and attention to detail to make our exceptional gourmet chocolate. We invest in people, not machines, who take pride in their craft. This is our American tradition. Handmade fresh, one piece at a time!
