Legacy Chocolates is dedicated to restoring the fine craft of real chocolate wherever discerning mouths are found. We are committed to the production of fresh, handmade, nutritious, high quality chocolate at affordable prices. Our intent is to have everyone know about, and fall in love with the earth’s most perfect food - REAL chocolate. Stop in and meet the owners, Mark & Lorraine Dixon, who are passionate producers and purveyors of chocolate. They designed the St. Paul store in a fashion that enables customers and passersby to view all the products from being made from start to finish – including all beverages, baking, and chocolate. Liberate your taste buds! They don’t know what they’ve been missing.
Human Intent (and Cocoa Content) Matter
At Legacy Chocolate, we understand the need for a return to nutritious food in people’s diets. Since our first store opened in Wisconsin on Earth Day in 2002, we have aimed to provide a sinfully satisfying departure from the low-carb, non-fat, eat-on-the-run diet many people follow today, hoping to provide everyone with something more wholesome and nutritious, but still intoxicatingly delicious. We hope to change people's eating habits from fast chocolate, which is made with corn syrup and preservatives, to REAL chocolate, which is made with fresh local butter and cream, and the highest quality chocolate available. We never use preservatives or corn syrup in any of our products.
Chocolate: Food or Candy?
Real cocoa provides an abundance of minerals, vitamins (B1, B2, and D), and antioxidants (A, C, and E – like those found in green and black tea), and is an excellent source of energy. Like a fine wine, a good chocolate will have its own bouquet, and will be just as satisfying to the senses.
