Sweet Ashley’s chocolate is all about love… for our products, our family, our business and our country. We are a small business born of a childhood passion, grown through a family vision, sustained through hard work, and supported by other American small businesses. Of course, at our core, Sweet Ashley’s Chocolate is about chocolate: the “good chocolate,” the kind that melts on the tongue, and lingers on the taste buds with a rich, smooth flavor that’s almost heaven.
Sweet Ashley’s founder, Connie Lawson, became enamored with chocolate making after a childhood trip to a chocolate factory. Convinced she could make chocolate on her own, she started experimenting. Before long, Connie was creating hand-made chocolate gifts for friends and family, a tradition that continued for many years. One holiday season, when the demands of a career in the pharmaceutical industry left little time for chocolate making, Connie opted to purchase store-bought gifts. The depths of her family’s disappointment convinced her to change her career focus.
In 2005, Connie and her husband Rob established Sweet Ashley’s Chocolates with a retail store in Royersford. They’ve been hand-making chocolate ever since, creating classic favorites and devising new concoctions. One of their most popular ideas is Schuylkill Mud. Named for a nearby river, this inventive treat is a crunchy, sweet and salty combination of toffee, peanut butter, potato chips and pretzels.
Today, Sweet Ashley’s Chocolates operates from a retail location in Limerick, and a chocolate kitchen and production location nearby. In addition to retail sales, Sweet Ashley’s chocolates are available to wholesale and corporate clients. Custom packaging and labeling are also offered, and Sweet Ashley’s personalized chocolate gifts have become popular favors for weddings, showers and parties. We believe in supporting American businesses, and our packaging, selected ingredients, and non-chocolate offerings are sourced from U.S. businesses and entrepreneurs whenever possible.
At Sweet Ashley’s, we are dedicated to offering the highest quality chocolate with a friendly shopping experience for everyday occasions and sweet indulgences. Stop in or shop online – and get to know the difference true chocolate love can make.
