Chuao Chocolatier Blows Into Safeway

by The Editors on February 29, 2008

Gi Barsallsleeve.JpgWe’re not sure this is a good thing, but Carlsbad-based chocolate company Chuao Chocolatier has announced that some of their products will now be available in Safeway and Wegman’s supermarkets.

Safeway, which operates over 1,740 stores across the United States, will be carrying the Spicy Maya, Chinita Nibs and Earl Grey chocolate bars across the country in their gourmet chocolate sets. They will also be carrying Chuao Chocolatier’s mini-bar, called the ChocoPod, in Spicy Maya and Nutmeg flavors. Wegman’s, with more than 70 stores in the Northeast now carries the Spicy Maya, Earl Grey, Chinita Nibs and Caracas Dark chocolate bars.

We were going to say “so much for boutique chocolates” but this is just the latest in a long line of major distribution plays, including Ralph’s, Gelson’s, and Cost Plus. Congrats!

Dear Editors,
We want our customers to rest assured that these distribution plays do not change our commitment to handcrafted, artisan chocolates using only fresh, natural ingredients and pure Venezuelan chocolate. We are excited to offer a small selection of our chocolates to national consumers, but are still handcrafting our products at our little chocolate factory in Carlsbad. We’re just working more hours to get the job done. 😉
Sweet Regards,
Brooke F.
Marketing Manager, Chuao Chocolatier
