John Kelly Chocolates in OC

April 15, 2022

Chocolate enthusiasts can now enjoy some of the world’s finest chocolates, John Kelly Chocolates at some of the best retailers in Orange County including Bristol Farms Newport Beach, Whole Foods, Roger’s Gardens, Hi-Time Wine Cellar, and Bristol Farms’ new concept, Newfound Market, at Irvine Spectrum. John Kelly Chocolates is a big "Hollywood Insider” kind of thing.  

Known for its luxurious line of premium, artisanal chocolate, John Kelly Chocolates opened its chocolate factory on a quaint street in Hollywood in 2004. 

John Kelly created a loyal following for its proprietary recipe that combines the creamy texture of ganache with the dense richness of fudge. The result is a unique confection, Truffle Fudge, now available in 23 flavors in beautiful premium packaging. Expanding beyond this signature item to solid hand-molded chocolate bars, chocolate-dipped fruit, salted caramels, vegan options, and more, means there is something for everyone. “Everything we make is handmade and of the highest quality. We’re known for making chocolates that give a huge upgrade to childhood favorites, like our truffle fudge,” says Co-Founder Kelly Green.

They make a great gift for Easter, Mother’s Day and to enjoy anytime. 

And, in honor of Earth Day, John Kelly Chocolates will be supporting the North American Butterfly Association, and the important work they do in the fields of conservation, education, and research.

Hand-molded chocolate butterflies are one of John Kelly Chocolates’ most popular items. Created in both dark or milk chocolate, the fanciful butterfly shells are filled with delicious vanilla butter caramel, sea salt, and crushed almonds.  They can be purchased as a box of four of either dark or milk chocolate, or as a gold box of nine mixed dark and milk chocolate butterflies, wrapped in a butterfly-festooned sleeve. They can also be purchased individually.  The week of April 17-23, a portion of every “butterfly” sale will be donated to North American Butterfly Association.
