A message from: Ed Iwamoto, President of Theobroma Chocolate Company
The name "THEOBROMA' may
have some of you curious. One day, years ago, I was
reading an article about one of my favorite foods and
came across the biological or scientific name of the
cacao tree (where chocolate comes from), Theobroma cacao.
Theobroma means "FOOD OF THE GODS" in Latin. It seemed an
appropriate name for such a unique food and I thought if
I ever started a chocolate company I would so name
I did and I have.
A name like that implies
our chocolates are pretty darn good. I think so! If I
don't like the taste of candy, we don't sell it. I don't
like chocolates that are overly sweet, se we won't make
those gooey sweet centered kinds, and to the chagrin of
some of my friends I don't like coconut, so no coconut
centers. I do like nuts, caramels, toffees, and those
rich creamy buttery chocolate truffles, so you will find
those types in our assortment boxes. Hey, if I don't like
something, how can I tell if it is a good one? I want to
provide you with chocolate candies that I truthfully
think "Taste Great." We promise to do our best to provide
you with a high quality product that you will enjoy. If
for some reason you are not happy with something from
Theobroma let us know and I'll personally do my best to
make things right.
Quality is Theobroma's Highest Priority!
