MAKING MEMORIES ONE CUSTOMER AT A TIME... Chocolate Chocolate Book News, Videos, Charities & CC Info
Our memoir Chocolate Chocolate: The True Story of Two Sisters, Tons of Treats, and the Little Shop That Could (Thomas Dunne/St. Martin's Press) is also published by Edizioni Piemme (Italy, 2011), Lifemap (Korea, June 2011). Our memoir is forthcoming in China and Poland.
ALLERGIES, AWAY! Creative Eats and Mouthwatering Treats for Kids Allergic to Nuts, Dairy, and Eggs was published by St. Martin's Press/Griffin, May 2013.
ALLERGIES, AWAY is a comfort book chock full of comfort food recipes. Inspired by Ginger's son's severe food allergies, Allergy Reports also chronicles Justin's food allergy journey from doctor appointments to the emotional roller coaster ride we've been on for years. While this is our personal experience, we hope our book guides and nurtures parents and allergic children.
Produced in 2012, this VOICE OF AMERICA segment about our fabled shop says it all!

With Swiss, Belgian, French, artisanal & American nostalgic chocolates & an incredible chocolate bar brimming with everything chocolate covered from Sea Salt Cashews to A Trio of Toffee Nuggets, we're a one-stop online shopping experience!
Established in 1984, Chocolate Chocolate was founded by Frances and Ginger Park. The sisters are devout chocoholics, but they're not chocolate snobs and believe there's a chocolate for every mood. "Sometimes you want a rich velvety European bonbon on your lips, other times you might want to curl up with a box of pecan turtles and a good book." Speaking of good books, the Park sisters are not only entrepreneurs, but authors of many books, including their most recent title Chocolate Chocolate: The True Story of Two Sisters, Tons of Treats, And the Little Shop That Could (St. Martinís Press/Thomas Dunne Books).
The Chocolate Chocolate Team also includes Ginger's husband, Skip, and the Park sister's best friend & shop manager, Koomo. And of course, they can't forget Estelle, who pops into work when she's in town! Behind the counter, they're one big happy family! When you call the shop, one of the CC Team will always be here to answer the phone, and give you the TLC you desire & deserve.
Chocolate Chocolate thrives on their love of chocolate and serving their customers.
When they opened their shop over a quarter century ago, chocolate was a delicious but sinful indulgence saved for special occasions. Not anymore! Customers come in everyday for their daily treat, and a little chocolate chat. Walking into Chocolate Chocolate isn't just about chocolate, but a break from the daily grind, and the CC Team loves it!
And here's some chocolate food for thought: Studies prove that chocolate's healthy properties lower blood pressure and raise good cholesterol. That's not all, folks! Chocolate's natural serotonin lifts spirits and makes us all happy! There are even studies which claim that milk chocolate improves the memory.
So there you have it - many reasons to shop at Chocolate Chocolate!
