It Began on a Whim
During Peterbrooke’s first Christmas season, the shop was asked to participate in the neighborhood’s annual holiday festival. Merchants were to provide free treats to visitors in the shopping plaza. At that time, Peterbrooke hadn’t created a product that was suitable for large groups. Phyllis’ dilemma was, “What to serve?” She couldn’t afford to sample her expensive hand-made chocolates. Buzzing with ideas, she went next door to the movie theater and purchased a huge bag of fresh popcorn. She hand tempered a bowl of milk chocolate, poured it over the popcorn, broke it up, and served it to the crowds in large bowls. The creation was an instant hit! It continues to be the company’s number one selling product 25 years later.
American Chocolates in the European Tradition
Peterbrooke Chocolatier transforms the art of fine European chocolate making into a truly American experience by combining the very best ingredients and old world techniques with a variety of all-American treats. Traditional favorites like decadent truffles, hand-made crèmes, caramels and cherry cordials indulge even the most discerning chocolate connoisseurs. Specialties such as chocolate covered cookies, pretzels, popcorn and strawberries which are hand-dipped daily with Peterbrooke’s own unique blend of milk chocolate, rich decadent dark and creamy sweet white chocolates.
