Straight Up Vermont
We live to make chocolates that are simple, but sublime; that bring joy; that are made with the highest quality local and organic ingredients. We’re not in it to get rich, we’re in it for the love of honest to goodness, blow your mind, make your day, lift your spirits, chocolates.
We're Eliza and Erlé
Growing up in rural Vermont without electricity, working on his grandfather’s dairy farm after school, Erlé was far more concerned with lunchtime than recess. At home, he made clandestine trips to the refrigerator to nibble on whole sticks of butter, his whip-thin frame corroborating his supposed innocence when confronted.
Eliza came to Vermont in 2010, after working in Florence, Italy's specialty food market, Il Mercato Centrale, and leading food and wine tours in Italy. Eliza has worked on vineyards in Italy, France, and Vermont.
Since we met, we've been hand making chocolates, a business, and a life together.

These chocolates are awesome! The packaging is amazing and thoughtful, the chocolates are designated certain flavors by certain patterns of chocolate drizzle, and Eliza even packaged it in a way that my wife couldn't tell what was in it (huge plus around the Christmas holiday).

I purchased three boxes of these chocolates to share with family on Valentine’s Day; they arrived
quickly, were packaged sustainably and beautifully, and tasted delicious. The flavors were amazing, and everyone loved them! I will definitely be back to buy more!

Just received my order of chocolate caramels and wanted to say how impressed I am with the speed of service and with how well and cutely packaged they were. It’s delightful that everything is recyclable and biodegradable.
