This is a line of handcrafted infused chocolates created by artisan chef Brian T. McElrath who decided he loved making chocolates better than cooking main courses which he did for 17 years. He has added century old flavors like chili, lemon, salt, lime, coconut, passion fruit, ginger and even sweet potato to his creative chocolates. They can be found at supermarkets, and department stores and even the Walker Art Center, the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Weisman Art Museum.
