Established in Jericho in 1986 by Bob Pollak (a second generation confectioner) and his wife Martha, the business has grown to include three generations. Handcrafted from recipes that have been a family tradition for over 50 years our chocolates are a Vermont tradition.
Our company name was inspired by Jericho's renowned historical figure Wilson A. Bentley, affectionately known as "Snowflake Bentley". A local farmer, Bentley became known for his work in photomicrography. In 1885 he became the first person to photograph a single ice crystal. During his life time Bentley photographed over 5000 snowflakes not finding any two alike.
At Snowflake Chocolates, we strive to bring together the uniqueness of snowflakes and the quality of handcrafted chocolates. Our business is built on the same philosophy as Grandpap Pollak's. Fine chocolates, reasonably priced, are the ingredients for success. Our chocolates continue to be made with pride and dedication.
Each piece is handmade from family recipes in small batches, coated with the finest milk and dark chocolate. These coatings were selected to complement our sweet centers and roasted nuts. The finest natural ingredients, fresh Vermont butter, cream and sweet amber maple syrup, come together to make the tastiest butter crunch, peanut brittle and fudge.
