Reviewed 4 April 2018

All chocolate started in the Actez/Mayan empires. Belize is right in the center of the beginnings. Chocolate is still cultivated in the old ways in most of Belize, small independent farms.

Run by Chris, an English ex-pat. He's been in Belize for 20 years. Started making chocolate 10 years ago and opened up his store 5 years ago.

The chocolate itself is topnotch. Good selection. They also do hot chocolate and shakes. Too hot for hot chocolate. I thought the milkshakes were not thick enough to be considered a milkshake. More of a cold drink.

You must do the chocolate making class. $15Bz per person. 30-40 minute session. Small ~10 people, on the back patio. 5 minute quick video then a hand on session on how chocolate is made. Get to taste the everything. Fresh cacao pulp. Fermented vinegar, roasted cacao beans, nibs, ground up dark and milk chocolate crunch (before liquid.) You get to try grinding on a Mayan stone mortar. It was fantastic. Chris is friendly, informative, and helpful.

I would highly recommend the chocolate making class.

This little gem is tucked away near the end of a street corner just up from the beach. It is a must stop! The staff were friendly and informative as they explained how and where the chocolate was made, which is all local. Great gift ideas and enough freshly made treats to sit and sample! They have beverages and a small sitting area inside. Don’t forget to take a peek at the window dressings...hanging cacao pods!

We got married at one of the resorts and wanted some local wedding favors for our welcome bags for our guests. We emailed Belize Chocolate company, and I'm so glad we did! We purchased small bags with a dark and milk chocolate truffle, they asked out our wedding colors so they could have the ribbon match our wedding, and all of our guests loved them! Belize Chocolate company was very easy to communicate with, our order was on time and exactly how we asked. We highly recommend them!

We tripped over the Belize Chocolate Company and were glad we did! While in San Pedro we ended up going three times! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful ... we loved the salted caramel dark chocolates and the dark chocolate marshmallow! I wish you all continued success and can't wait to visit again when we return! PS. They also offer samples of their chocolate if you want a taste before you buy!

We stopped here for a special treat. Loved that you could sample the different kinds of chocolate. Two of us got the truffles. Sooo yummy! One got a chocolate-covered marshmallow, and one got a chocolate chip cookie that was loaded with chips. I'm a chocolate snob, and this place was fabulous! Next time, we'll take the chocolate-making class.
