With all the excitement of the Holiday season behind us, it’s time to get back to business at Detroit Chocolat. We are busy finishing up a few orders and restocking the store after a very busy season, but this year we have an extra long “To-Do” list.
Detroit Chocolat is moving to 48901 Hayes Road, Shelby Township, MI 48315
Some highlights of the our new facility include increased production capacity, ability to cook caramel, toffee, and brittle products onsite, shared kitchen and retail space with longtime Detroit Chocolat supplier The Popped Kernel, revamped retail space with new items and merchandising, and an excellent location that is easy to get to at all times of the year (no more Hall Road craziness).
Stay tuned for updates, pictures, and news regarding the big MOVE. Here’s a picture of the new DC and TPK Kitchen space!
We love Santa as much as anybody out there, but this year he has a little something extra for us in the sleigh. We have been working on a new home to make our delicious peanut brittle items for a while, and we will have some news to share about that very soon. Stay tuned, and if you are looking for some holiday treats, don’t forget to stop in and see us at Detroit Chocolat. The picture below is a little hint for you about our BIG news.
We have been working extra hard to stock the shelves with “Detroiters” this year and are pleased to announce that we have brought back our signature box with a Pewabic “Old Detroit” Tile for the gift giving season. Shop online, call us at 586.566.8620, or come on by the “World Headquarters” located at 13923 Lakeside Circle in Sterling Heights and pick one (or a dozen) up for someone on your list this holiday season.
Turkey Day is just around the corner, so don’t forget to add a little DC deliciousness to your holiday meal. Belgian Chocolate table favors are exactly what you need this year. Stop in our call us at 586.566.8620 to pick yours up before the big day. Gobble Gobble!
At Detroit Chocolat, we are fans of all things that taste good. Certainly, beer falls into that category (along with a whole bunch of other side benefits), so we paired up with Sherwood Brewing Company in Shelby Township to create an event featuring two of our favorite things. All the information you need is right here (choco_beer) – just call up our friends at Sherwood to reserve your spot ahead of time. Your taste buds can thank us later!
Summer is always great in Michigan, but we have to admit that we have fallen in love with Fall at Detroit Chocolat. Aside from all the usual things we enjoy (apple orchards, cooler temps, and FOOTBALL), we have a cart load of new products to roll out for 2014. Just a hint of things to come –
Pumpkin Spice Pecan Briddle – Double Layer “Detroiter” Boxes – Holiday Edition Pewabic “Detroiter” Boxes – Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolat – Caramel Macchiato Briddle -
As promised, we will bring back (starting in October – or perhaps a little sooner) our Belgian Hot Chocolat drinks as well as our Motor City Peanut Briddle, Dark Chocolat Orange Peel, Sponge Candy, and all your favorite Halloween Treats. Stay tuned – as your Fall Favorites hit the shelves, we will post pictures for you to salivate over.
Monday (September 1st) is Labor Day. Like many of you, we will take some time to be with our family and prepare ourselves for another busy season of working hard at what we love to do. In the event that you are looking for a special treat to bring on vacation or just need something to snack on while you drive up north, Detroit Chocolat will be open Thursday 11-7, Friday 11-8, and Saturday 11-4. And yes, that is what Michigan would look like…if it were made of chocolate chips.
Three pack Cornerless Chocolat Bars and Cupsters in 5 oz bags are now available at Detroit Chocolat and a few of our favorite places around town (Vince and Joe’s Fruit Market and Michigan By The Bottle). For those of you unable to visit us in person, stay tuned for an update to our website featuring some of your DC favorites.

The fine folks over at The Popped Kernel delivered another order of fresh gourmet popcorn this week and we are excited to announce two new flavors – Sea Salt Caramel & Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel. Along with some updated packaging, our favorite caramel corn just got a little more irresistible.
We already know the answer to that question, so don’t bother emailing to let us know. Just come on over to DC this week and pick up some awesome treats for Mom before its too late (Mother’s Day is this Sunday). We highly recommend the chocolate covered strawberries – available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday ONLY.
