While finishing college, Laughing Gull Chocolates founder, Lindsay Tarnoff, started telling people that she was going to "save the world with chocolate." She wasn't sure how, but about ten years later, Lindsay started making ganache and enrobing rich dark chocolate to create decadent direct trade chocolate truffles. Not only are the chocolates delicious, but just as importantly, they are chocolates with a conscience. With each chocolate morsel, we take a step towards changing the world for the better; with each bite, you support an organization that truly cares, and aims to use chocolate as a catalyst towards positive social change.
Laughing Gull Chocolates is proud that we use as many local ingredients as possible. In addition, we are passionate about our mission to educate and make a difference in our community. When you buy locally, more money stays in the local economy. In addition to supporting our local economy, we also train refugees and young people in workforce development, facilitate workshops on chocolate making, and work with schools to use chocolate as a tool to educate on chemistry, history and social justice.
