The swirl of Ghirardelli melting in your mouth. The flavor taking over the taste buds and delivering delicious delight! Trace the roots and you’ll find yourself in 1817, when Domenico Ghirardelli was born in Rapallo, Italy, to an “exotic foods importer” and his wife. As a child, Domenico received his first education in the chocolate trade when he was apprenticed to a local candymaker. Married by 20, he and his wife sailed to Uruguay with his wife to work in the coffee and chocolate business. The next year Ghirardelli moved to Lima, Peru, and opened a confectionery store. Nine years later, in 1847, Ghirardelli’s neighbor, James Lick, moved to San Francisco with 600 pounds of Ghirardelli’s chocolate while Ghirardelli remained and continued to operate his store in Peru.
These days we associate the Ghirardelli name with San Francisco and Ghirardelli Square. We savor the chocolate and crave its decadence.
The two newest flavors from the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company are being released and if you are Mint Cookie Fan or a Toffee Crunch addict, these bars will be calling your fingers to peel away that golden wrapper and enjoy.
Here is the new lineup of Ghirardelli Chocolate soon to be making an appearance in a purse, briefcase, or desk top near you:
- NEW: Mint Cookie – Decadent refreshing mint chocolate filling blended with crunchy cookies surrounded by slow-melting milk chocolate.
- NEW: Toffee Crunch – Slow-melting milk chocolate & decadent chocolate filling blended with crunchy toffee bits.
