From Rockets to Chocolates…

My first career was in aerospace engineering – designing rockets for NASA. I've now taken that engineering mindset and applied it to the art of making chocolate. After studying how commercial chocolate is typically made, I set a goal to create a tastier and healthier product.

That's how Gourmet M was born. I now create a new kind of gourmet treat using Belgian dark chocolate – incredibly rich in flavor and free from dairy, palm oil and animal products – and incorporate dried fruits, fresh roasted nuts, exotic spices, and more. All of our chocolates are handcrafted goodness, made in small batches in our Carlsbad kitchen vegan, gluten-friendly,  and out-of-this world.
