Chocolate always gets a gold star as a holiday gift - especially when it's locally made at Seattle Chocolate's Tukwila factory.
"We are really about making beautiful gifts, I think that's our heritage in the chocolate market,” said Jean Thompson, owner and CEO of Seattle Chocolate, from the retail store located at the factory. “We started as a chocolate gift company, we continue to invest very heavily in beautiful packaging."
Chocolate bars with holiday flavors are mini works of art, with cozy critters by Seattle illustrator Frida Clements.
Seattle Chocolate’s flagship store also has mix and match truffles. And here's another fun fact about the packaging: the twist wraps are now compostable.
You can even have a Willy Wonka moment and tour this chocolate factory. And tours involve plenty of chocolate tasting.
