Zingerman’s Sweets Story
At Zingerman’s, you will find one of the best selections of chocolates and confections in the Midwest, the U.S., the world! Our specialists travel the globe in search of the best of the best — always with your taste buds in mind. Recent stops on our sweet quest have been Modica, Sicily; Roanne, France; Cologne, Germany; and New York City!

We work with passionate chocolate-makers, experts who source the best cacao beans and transform them into incredibly flavorful bars and confections. A lot of things have to go right to make a great chocolate. And just like great wine, cheese, and oil, great chocolate should be complex and balanced with a long, pleasing finish. Its natural aromas and flavors may be as varied as wet leaves and figs, citrus and raspberries, or caramel and coffee. Ask us for a sample and tell us what you taste!
