Maker Kaap's Old Fashioned Chocolates

Maker Details When Otto Kaap made his first batch of chocolate back in 1907 in his store on bustling Main Street, in Green Bay, Wisconsin, he set the standard of quality by making his chocolates fresh daily in small batches using only the finest ingredients. We still follow those same standards of quality today. At first, Otto struggled to make his new business a success, working as a bank teller and a percussionist in a Vaudeville orchestra, while perfecting his chocolates. He would come in late night to make his chocolates so they would be fresh when he opened his doors in the morning. Made in small batches, he used only the freshest ingredients - select pure whipping cream, sweet creamy butter, pure vanilla and cane sugar - and soon Kaap's Old World Chocolates became a Green Bay landmark for its European style, old-world atmosphere and wonderful chocolates. Still in business in Green Bay;
