Why Truffles?

Chocolate is not an easy medium to work with.  It is temperamental and is easily affected by moisture and temperature. That being said, we love a challenge! Truffles are a very versatile presentation, in terms of chocolate products.  There are an infinite number of variations and combinations that can be produced using the same base. They are small in size (compared to say a candy bar) so people who are watching their sugar intake or calories can indulge their chocolate craving while not going overboard.  Truffles pack a huge flavor punch.  And what we love more than anything is flavor!

where is your store front?

Simple Answer: We do not have one……yet!

Complicated Answer:  We are currently creating a store front for everyone to enjoy. We will be unveiling it in the near future. In the meantime, you can find us around Homer, and other parts of Alaska, at resorts, B&B's, and a few other retailers.  In addition, we offer our products in The Shop, an efficient and sleek virtual storefront for anyone in America to enjoy what Homer locals do.

does the shop show everything you have to offer?

 Sort of.  We are always creating new chocolate products for everyone to enjoy.  We will update The Shop as they become available, so visit often. You can also follow the creative process on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Why do you recommend fedex 2day for truffles?  why offer Fedex ground? don't you guarantee your product?

Being separated from the majority of the U.S. creates a challenge for shipping out of the state.  Most orders are sent via air.  Truffles are extremely delicate and can damage easily, especially when traveling to warmer areas (over 70 degrees).  Through MANY trials, and carriers, we have found that truffles arrived at their new home damage free when sent via FedEx and 2Day or faster.  This method is highly recommended for truffles, and when shipping any chocolate to warmer climates. HTC guarantees that your truffles and chocolates are of superior quality when they leave The Factory, and shipped. We take every effort to make sure your chocolates arrive to you intact.

I have seen a lot of products with Alaska stuff on it, but they weren't made in alaska and/or the company isn't from alaska.  How do I know you and your products are really alaskan made?

Great question, Alaska offers a great program called "Made in Alaska" that ensures Alaskan authenticity.  Products have to be made in, and most of the material must come from, Alaska. Those products come with a sticker or label verifying real Alaskan made products. So, look for the label.
