Menchaca Chocolates

Santa Barbara, CA

Menchaca Chocolates is a micro- batch Chocolate Factory & Shop owned by two, born and raised Santa Barbarians. They are Bean to Bar Chocolate Makers who do things a little differently. Focusing on the exquisite taste of their single origin cacao beans, you’ll find the highest quality ingredients to produce a slightly less sweet and highly flavorful 90%, 80%, 70%, 60% Dark, Oat Milk and a variety of flavored White Chocolate. Using Oat Milk Powder for their Milk, White, Strawberry, Mango and Lemon Chocolate makes the whole line Dairy Free (VEGAN) Why? Because it tastes better! 

If fine healthy Chocolate produced by a Mom & Pop kind of operation isn’t interesting enough they invite you to come to their little factory and create your own Chocolate  Bar with your choice of 30+ toppings AND paint your own wooden Chocolate box to package them in.  Every week they set up an Art Bar with lots of Art & Craft supplies to embellish your Box. Make sure to make a reservation for the Chocolate & Art Workshops online ahead of time as they are likely to sell out. Reserve your spot here.

Pete & LeAnne’s passion for Chocolate, Art and community has created a unique, hidden little treasure here in Santa Barbara that you must go and visit. If you can find it, it will be a memory that will last forever. A truly fun and unique experience for all ages.
