Our Story

“Following the light of the sun, we left the Old World.” ~ Christopher Columbus

Shot inspired by the movie Chocolat

Her Version

Everybody has a story to tell. Divani’s story began one chilly fall evening in late November of 2006, after a hearty belly warming meal, after the work was done for the day, after my husband and I sat down together with a dream in our midst. We talked about how we would like to create something for the two of us to work on together. Something we could work on each day, side by side. Something we both loved. That was when the notion of making chocolate had been realized.

A few years, countless discussions and a slew of activity later, we are finally living that dream the way we saw it at the time of it’s conception. We’ve got just about all of our chocolate bunnies in a row, one might say, from the creation and presentation of a variety of chocolate confections to the way we interact with our fellow chocolate lovers, Divani has become more than just the name that represents the chocolate we make and share with the world, it has become a way of life and a way to love!

His Version

It was not long after I met my wife that we discovered our shared love of chocolate. Yet, not long after we began to feel a major lack of combinations that would appease our diverse tastes. After looking all over and finding no respite, we decided to create our own chocolates, which led to starting our own chocolaterie in the quaint river-valley town of Foxburg, PA in the summer of 2007.

Sooner than later, we realized that we were not alone in our adoration for unique, quality confections. Those who have supported us from the beginning along with those who find us everyday, keep returning for the first-class chocolate experience! We owe our success to our customers who supported us by sharing the love for quality chocolate that we have to offer. Thank you!
