JP's Chocolate Shoppe in Wilton Manors: Sweet Treats for All Diets
The fudge has been sourced from the Art of Fudge in Pennsylvania. Made with organic cane sugar the fudge loafs contain 30 percent less sugar and the cocoa butter decorated fudge bars have 50 percent less sugar than most products. Both are devoid of trans fat and gluten.
The store caters to a wide range of dietary restrictions with sugar-free, gluten-free, kosher, organic, and vegan options.
It's these sorts of touches that have been garnering the crowds; the place has become a popular spot to pick up gifts.
JP's half pound truffle gift-box
"Everyone walks in and says, 'This is awesome,'" says Miller. We've had a great reception; in the month that we've been open we've had customers come back more than three times."
While everything in-store has been handpicked by Miller and Cobleigh, they do have their favorites. Miller loves the mango punch, a rich yet refreshing blend of mango chocolate -- it's slightly acidic and not overly sweet. Cobleigh is a big fan of the fudge; his favorites are the peanut butter and the blood orange.
For easy present options, the shop offers wine and truffle packages ranging from around $15 to $40 as well as gift baskets ($30 to $150) and half pound boxes of truffles ($15).
An e-commerce site with shipping options is currently underway.
