Jamaican Origin Chocolates
 
The Oakland Chocolate Company is a Bean to Bar to Bonbon manufacturer of handmade artisan chocolates.  We exclusively use cocoa beans from Jamaica. Beginning 2020, all of our newly made chocolate will be using cocoa beans form Bachelors Hall in the parish of St. Thomas, farmer Desmond Jadusingh. We have used all the beans we bought from the now defunct Jamaican Cocoa Industry Board.  Our chocolates are mostly made with a 70% cacao base.  We also have a 45% cacao milk chocolate that has a rich caramelly flavor, 2 80% 2-oz bars and 4 varieties of 1-oz 85% cacao bars.  The 70% cacao from Bachelors Hall has a wonderful rich chocolatey flavor reminiscent to me of the chocolate pudding my mom made when I was growing up, with a mild fruity finish.  We also make some 100% 1-oz bars and some sweetened with organic pure monk fruit insstead of sugar. Our sweetener is organic cane sugar.  We have a wide variety of chocolate novelties in 1-oz packets as well as bars, and our truffles and caramels are divine.  The caramels have won numerous awards.   Our chocolates are made in small batches to be fresh and preservative free.   The box below is our Classic collection of bonbons and truffles. Click on the "Product Line" button to see the full range of options from custom collections to bars to dipped dried fruit and of course, holiday specialties.  We make a new bonbon or truffle every month and our Original Box of the Month Club members are guaranteed a sample of those each month.  Click on "Specialties" to learn about the current creations.
 
Because our Bachelors Hall beans were so much more expensive than the beans we got from the CIB, we are raising our prices for the first time in 13 years.
