bridgewater chocolate
In 1995, the prestigious Swedish Chef Erik Landegren moved to the quaint town of Bridgewater, Connecticut, where he began to fall in love with the delicious flavor combinations and generous sizes of classic American chocolate. He admired America’s passion and indulgence for chocolate but longed for Europe’s uncompromising ingredients and technique. So, he applied the European technique and ultra-premium ingredients to create Bridgewater Chocolate, elevating the standard for American chocolate classics. Now produced in Brookfield, Connecticut, with an employee-led team, the focus remains on creating premium chocolate pieces with thoughtful consideration of the entire gift-giving experience. The luxury hinged box, complete with our signature hand-tied bow, is now the standard for classic, meaningful gifts given by those who truly love and care.
