Chocolate donut at Mirador & Stovall at River City Apartments in Jacksonville, Florida



Did you know that it takes about four hundred pounds of cacao beans to make a single pound of chocolate?

If you would like to enjoy a chocolate treat, head to one of the following shops:

Sweet Pete's

When Peter Behringer was eleven years old, his mother opened a family chocolate business that grew to thirty-two locations. After college, Peter honed his chocolate-making skills and decided to open his own shop in a whimsically decorated historic home. His creations gained attention, and the store was featured on the reality series, The Profit. The staff is dedicated to offering one of the sweetest destinations around, and the selection includes classic malt balls, milk chocolate almond toffee, and classic chocolate walnuts.


Since 1947, Kilwins has been known for providing quality chocolates and confections combined with exceptional customer service. The shop offers an authentic sensory and taste experience like none other and the chocolatiers make the treats using original recipes and premium ingredients. Choices include milk chocolate sea salt caramels, dark toffee bars, and milk coconut clusters.

Peterbrooke Chocolates

Peterbrooke was founded in the early 1980s with a mission to bring the art of European chocolate making the United States. The chocolatiers create the recipes by combining the best ingredients with old-world traditions, and visitors find the selection includes Jag Paws, milk chocolate pretzel pals, and dark chocolate caramel corn nut crunch.

See's Candies

See's Candies dates back to 1921 when it opened in Los Angeles. It was established by Mary See and her son Charles, and she created the recipes in her home kitchen using the finest and freshest ingredients. Items include butterscotch squares, milk molasses chips, and raspberry creams.
