From the silkiest fudge, creamiest caramel, light, fluffy truffles and toffees enrobed in the finest chocolate and crushed nuts, to turtles (featured on NPR's "The Splendid Table") in all combinations: cashew, pecan, almond, or macadamia,  in milk, dark, or white chocolate - clusters, exquisite barks, and original signature confections, Turtle Alley Chocolates tempts the sweet-lover in all of us.

Located in historic Gloucester, Massachusetts, Turtle Alley's reputation for warm, personal service and the finest, freshest hand-made chocolates is based on these simple principles: use natural ingredients, finest grades of chocolate, real butter, fresh cream, imported nuts and spices, and handcraft small batches for the freshest taste experience available anywhere. It's not just our motto, it's our mission.

And while we offer a vast array of traditional fare, Turtle Alley is also known for new and innovative taste combinations: smoked hot pepper barks, white chocolate blueberry cashew turtles, cherries steeped in brandy or gran marnier, chocolate covered ginger, and -- our very own "Umba" -- the perfect combination of coconut, caramel, and roasted almonds. Ask what's new as we're always cooking up fresh taste sensations.

If you're new to Turtle Alley we'd suggest that you start with one of our samplers (available in 1, 2, 3, or 5 lb. boxes) or, if you like, make up your own box from the menus on the left. Either way we'll get your Turtle Alley hand-made chocolates to you as fast as our sticky hands can manage.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hallie Baker, Chocolatier.
