Fresh cream. Real butter. Vanilla beans – no extract. The finest spices, nuts and liqueurs, crafted into velvety confections and hand-dipped into a special Kakao blend of chocolate.

Can you keep a secret? Chocolate bark makes you feel rich. Deep and indulgent, the crisp bark gives way to a molten stream of luxury in your mouth. Can’t decide which to try first? Go ahead, sample each one.

Kakao strives for nothing short of the finest chocolate experience. We use only the finest all-natural ingredients — no artificial flavors or additives — to create exceptional artisan chocolates and confections.

Kakao has two great St. Louis locations!

In light of the pandemic, we’re shifting some things around and trying some new ideas. Please bear with us, and call us if you have any questions. You are welcome to visit our shop (mask required), or we can take your order by phone and bring it out to your car.

Throughout the pandemic we’ve seen slow sales (down nearly one-half from this time last year), but we’ve kept our staff and customers safe, and met all our financial obligations. Normally at this time of the year we’d be well into ramping up for the holiday season, but we haven’t been able to do that because of the limitations of the pandemic.
Unfortunately, this means for the 2020 holiday we need to increase prices for many of our products, effective November 1. But we’re also giving our forward-thinking customers the opportunity to lock in their holiday purchases at the current prices before then.
So, at the shop and at all markets throughout October, we’ll have order forms for you to pre-purchase our most popular confections and assortments at current prices. Just let us know what date you’d like to pick up your gifts in November or December, and we’ll have them ready for you.

The form is available here.
