French Broad Chocolate
French Broad Chocolates has been crafting artisan chocolate straight from the source since 2012. Partners Jael and Dan Rattigan started the venture in 2006 after living in a cacao-growing region in Costa Rica for two years. Today, French Broad Chocolates delivers beautiful farm-to-factory and bean-to-bar products ranging from bonbons to bars to brownies. For those visiting Asheville, stop by the flagship dessert spot, French Broad Chocolate Lounge or pop in to the smaller Chocolate Boutique. Curious about the process? There's also a newly opened 14,000 square foot Chocolate Factory and Cafe which offers tours daily.
