Best Place to Buy Specialty Chocolates

1) Chocopologie

Pretty much everyone loves chocolate. But not all chocolate is created equal. Fritz Knipschildt is the maitre chocolatier at Chocopologie, and he started his company, Knipschildt Chocolatier, 13 years ago. “I wanted to make really awesome, artisan, handmade fresh chocolates without the chemicals, something that was missing in the U.S. 13 years ago,” he says. It was immediately successful. About seven years ago, Knipschildt needed more space for his production, and an outlet for public interaction, so he opened Chocopologie in South Norwalk. “It was something I missed myself, from Europe,” he says. “A place to hang out and have coffee, espresso, cappuccino, desserts, chocolates, with all your friends … maybe even play backgammon.” Historically, the past five or 10 years have been a chocolate-making revolution in the U.S., and Knipschildt is at its forefront. “The bar has been raised,” he says. “I actually think we are a lot more creative in the U.S. than they are in Europe right now. I know European chocolate companies are looking to the U.S. for inspiration.”
