Florences chocolates is a unique business and has some of the finest chocolates in the west. Florence explains about how it began and her love of the company her and her husband started those many years ago.
Florence Manwaring began a small chocolate company in Rexburg Idaho 32 years ago on Valentines Day. It seemed suitable to name it after herself since it was her famous candy. She never thought that her small business would grow and start sending chocolates around the world to missionaries, loved ones, and those in the military. Now, after millions of chocolates made, her son Brian along with 10 other workers keep up with the daily demand for these Exquisite Chocolates.

Behind the Scenes:
Chocolate making is a dying art form, especially in the USA. When I realized that there was a unique business located so close to me I could not help but do a story on Florences Chocolates. I spoke to Florence and her son Brian and they really liked the idea of doing a short story. Even though they had a lot of stories done already they were gracious enough to allow me into their business. While filming Florence had a rather touching moment that you catch briefly in the video. She truly loves the workers that come in sometimes at 4:30am to make it all possible. Of cameras she explained that chocolates are her whole life and she knows that Florences will be around for generations to come.
