Almost 40 years ago, Paul Hoffman Sr. had a simple dream fueled by the purchase of a small chocolate shop in Lake Worth: He wanted to have a place for his family to work. As noble a goal as that sounds, Hoffman was also a bit of an experimenter in the kitchen and soon used this platform to invent confections like the "Pecan Caramel Jitterbugs" and the "Snoodle." Spring forward to 2014 and the Hoffman's Chocolates empire has risen to several retail operations throughout South Florida with a factory and headquarters in Greenacres that has become a popular stop for tourists in Palm Beach.
But it is during holiday season that Hoffman's really gets its chocolatier guns out. Known for elaborate displays and award-winning gift baskets, Hoffman's Chocolates will be a holiday fixture for some time, and by embracing the trendy concept of the pop-up this coming season, it'll surely be within the reach of shoppers all the way through to Valentine's Day.More »
