Chocolate is one of life’s most joyful commodities. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy indulging in a delicious truffle, brownie, candy bar, or even a chocolate chip cookie? There are so many different varieties of chocolate and ways to prepare it that it’s one of those treats that truly never gets tiresome!
Birmingham Chocolate started out of the innovative mind of Doug Cale, Head Chocolatier at the company when he was just a boy. His mother allowed him to help her in the kitchen on rain days when he couldn’t play outside, making all sorts of delicious artisan chocolate treats, like cake and cookies (they were a big dessert family, as Cale likes to put it).
Although the seed of intrigue was planted in Cale at a young age, he ended up going to college and graduating with a degree in Astronautics (probably the farthest thing from Head Chocolatier that you could think of).
After years in the business world as a consultant, Cale finally decided to get his chocolate business off the ground, and set up Birmingham Chocolate in the upscale neighborhood of Birmingham, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit).
Today, Cale and the folks at Birmingham Chocolate make some of the best artisan chocolate desserts around and do so without the inclusion of yucky, funny-tasting artificial ingredients.
You could say that Birmingham Chocolate specializes, and is most well-known, for their colorfully designed and delicious truffle creations. These are handcrafted creations made with milk, and dark or white couverture chocolate. There are also varieties infused with natural flavors like spices, liqueurs, herbs, and concentrates.
Just look at some of the flavors available:
- Blood Orange Dark
- Jamaican Rum Dark
- Mocha Milk
- Acai Blueberry Dark
- Kahlua Dark
- Guinness Dark
- Butterscotch White
- Watermelon White
- Chipotle Dark
These are flavors that are guaranteed to make your customers’ mouths water, and their sweet tooths crave these delicious truffle creations!
They also have a delicious selection of creme chocolate treats available, like Bourbon Vanilla Creme, Maple Creme, and Coconut Creme.
Do you have customers that like bark? (chocolate bark, not tree bark, of course). Then they’ll love flavors like Almond, Oreo Cookie, Peanut Butter, Peppermint, Pistachio Cherry, Salted Cashew Caramel, Samoa, and Bumpy Road!
Birmingham Chocolate also has some great Fruit and Nut cluster chocolate treats, caramels, and toffees. These people know their desserts!
One of the biggest attractions to Birmingham Chocolate (besides their delicious desserts) is their commitment to using only the best ingredients. Their treats are natural, vegan, kosher, gluten-free, and non-GMO, making them perfect for people who love natural flavors or have certain dietary restrictions. They don’t want anyone to miss out on their awesome chocolates!
They also use a “slightly edgy” 72 percent cocoa extra bittersweet chocolate, with no added cocoa butter, for their chocolate creations.
They also have a line of bars that are organic and certified fair trade, made from either 66 percent or 74 percent cocoa chocolate. This cocoa is USDA Organic certified by the OEFFA and Fair Trade Certified by Fair Trade USA.
