Bakers Chocolate & Cocoa

Our Bakery Chocolate and Cocoa category is full of sweets and treats under three subcategories – chocolate chips, cocoa and truffles. You'll find two of the oldest chocolatiers represented here. Ghirardelli, founded in 1852 and currently owned by Swiss confectioner Lindt & Sprüngli, founded in 1845. Bakers Chocolate, an American company, was founded in 1780. These companies all produce world-class chocolate products that we're proud to offer. Add to that list Nestlé, established in 1905 and perhaps the most recognized name in America for chocolate candy bars and hot cocoa.
