A Brief History of Dilettos Chocolate
Dilettos started off as Stuffed Chocolate, Ltd., which was created in 2002 - We have grown from a web merchant with fewer than 15 items in our 'inventory' to a company which offers 100+ gourmet products. We've learned a lot since we first started offering chocolate covered montmorency cherries to the world! And we've learned it from you, our customers, who look to us to provide you with exceptional products at excellent pricing. As we've grown our business we've focused our greatest effort on developing an ever expanding line of chocolate confections, always with 100% Imported Belgian Chocolate. Our range of chocolate products grows almost monthly - a testament to the quality we provide.
In November 2016, Stuffed Chocolate Ltd. was sold to to D'Avolio Oils, Vinegars and More in an effort to expand our footprint in the chocolate world and Buffalo market. Partnering with a local establishment has allowed our retail sales to grow beyond a web based company. D'Avolio's promise is to continue to produce authentic Belgian Chocolates with a small business feel. In March of 2018 the name was officially changed to Dilettos by D'Avolio. Dilleto meaning delight in Italian, sums up our products perfectly. If there is something that you would like to see us offer, let us know!
Our Chocolate, Our Passion
At our heart, we love chocolate. We love it so much that we hate to see it given over to machines to make our line of confections, molded chocolates, truffles, and other chocolate products. Which is why all of our chocolates are handcrafted and made to order.
Please note that our chocolates may have come into contact with peanut and other ground nut products as well as tree nut products such as almonds. Milk chocolate and white chocolate products contain whole milk powder. We do use coconut in some preparations; this is noted in the product description. The chocolate itself is chocolate mass, cocoa butter, sugar, milk (for milk chocolates and white chocolate), soya lecithin, and Madagascar pure vanilla (not vanillan). If you have concerns regarding a particular allergen, please ask us.
Our connection with D'Avolio Olive Oils provides us a opportunity to create lasting impressions and unique flavor profiles.
We use only the finest imported 100% pure Belgian Chocolate in our handcrafted confections. All the chocolate bases we use are Fair Trade Certified.
Community is the cornerstone for success, which is why we love interns and fundraising.
