Stafford's Chocolates has been making gourmet handcrafted chocolate, using fresh, local ingredients from the Central Valley of California for over 30 years. Mama Ganache joined the Stafford’s family in 2018, continuing their tradition of bringing the finest organic, ethically-sourced chocolates to the Central Coast. Featuring house-made bean-to-bar chocolates from around the world, vegan friendly, soy and dairy free options, Stafford’s and Mama Ganache offer something sweet for everyone!
Stafford’s retail shop features handmade truffles, barks and specialty items unique to our region. The production facility will be located below the retail shop and visitors will have the opportunity to see fresh chocolate confections being made daily. Chocolate making classes and other private events will also be available.
The Stafford's Chocolate’s family also includes the Swedish Candy Factory in Solvang, CA. The Swedish Candy Factory is the only bakery in the United States making authentic, handmade Polkagris. This Swedish candy stick was invented in 1859 in Granna, Sweden and remains a popular candy tradition. Visitors to their Solvang location can witness the 150-year-old baking process using no artificial sweeteners, chemicals or preservatives.
