Eclat Chocolate in West Chester, Pennsylvania

Chocolate. Chocolate somehow always makes it way into our road trips. I wonder how? Could it be that I love locally made chocolate?  While in Pennsylvania visiting family, we ventured into Eclat Chocolate in West Chester. On a previous trip to Pittsburgh, I savored an Eclat bar I discovered at a local chocolate shop. So, I was thrilled to have an opportunity to explore Eclat's Factory Store!

We visited right before Easter, so we delighted in Easter creations. While the Easter creations were beautiful as well as whimsical, I really wanted to check out the chocolate bars. I was pleasantly surprised that Eclat offered samples of their bars. Eclat actually has quite a number of bars, so having samples made it vastly easier to choose. Some bars are inspired by locations, some highlight spices and others create unique flavors. After some sampling, we all ended up choosing a bar or two!

Eclat is also home to an incredible case of chocolate truffles and bonbons. Look at that display:

Seasonal temptations and hot chocolate also entice chocolate lovers.

Chocolatier Christopher Curtin has honed his skills learning from chocolate masters in Belgium, Switzerland, France, Germany and Japan. Curtin's craftsmanship is certainly evident and each chocolate creation looks like a piece of art. The unique flavors tantalize and inspiration exploration. We appreciated Curtin's talent and look forward to enjoying the chocolate creations we brought back with us as a special locally made treat. We look forward to visiting Eclat Chocolate again on our next trip!
