A Chocolate Lover’s Guide to Missouri
In Delectable Destinations, Deborah Reinhardt leaves no stone – or truffle – unturned as she explores Missouri in her search for compelling stories and delicious chocolate creations to share.
Travel through various regions in Missouri and you will come across communities filled with rich histories and some surprising food finds, including a variety of chocolate treats. From truffles that are works of art to a candy tradition that dates to the 1870s, your sweet tooth and sense of adventure will never be the same.
In the Show-Me State, there are some incredibly talented artisans doing amazing things, not only with chocolate, but also within their communities. Many of them left careers to follow their chocolate passions. Now, they are doing what they truly love to do.
While you’re traveling around Missouri to sample its culinary offerings, make time to chat with these chocolate artisans and shop owners. You’ll find all of them are highly dedicated and passionate about what they’re doing, which is making life a little sweeter for us all.
