Cheers for Chocolate!

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”                                   — Charles M. Schultz

A crew of chocolate-lovin’ St. George Village residents visited Schakolad Chocolate Factory in Roswell to learn about the art of making this delicious confection.

Schakolad (pronounced shaq-oh-LAD) — a combination of “Schaked” and “Chocolate” — is a name associated with three generations of chocolate making. Baruch Schaked, co-founder of Schakolad, has been a chocolate maker since 1969 and opened his first custom retail chocolate boutique in Winter Park, Fla. in 1995. From there, Schakolad began franchising and now has locations in several states, including the Roswell store here in Georgia.
