Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Company Nashville, Tennessee A former pastry chef, trained at Le Cordon Bleu, Scott Witherow returned home to Nashville and started Olive and Sinclair with a mission to make really great southern artisan chocolate.  Building from just two ingredients – cocoa beans and brown sugar – Scott then incorporates local coffee grounds, cocoa nibs, and salt & pepper, to create seven varieties of hand-crafted chocolate bars.

Another good reason to visit Nashville... Whole Foods Market - are you ever going to open a shop over here in the UK?

Olive and Sinclair Chocolate is to die for--particularly the Cinnamon Chili. Will Whole Foods be carrying it in the Jacksonville, FL store? My niece interned at O&S last year and brought the family in Florida some of O&S chocolate at Christmas. Since it has all been gone for months, I have been having withdrawals. Please carry it in Jacksonville!

This is a great video! I have just returned from Seattle, WA, and was proud (for you) to see your chocolate on the shelf along with west coast artisan chocolatiers. Wishing you the best in the future! ...a fan from Memphis, TN

Finally, a chocolate without processed white sugar but the brown color minimally processed kind. Usally from either Columbia or Hawaii.

Bought two bars at The Produce Place - salt &amp; pepper and chili. My budget doesn't normally allow for $5 chocolate bars, but when I can splurge or have a coupon ($20 local deal/store coupon paid for most of the total for the bars plus a bottle of olive oil), I'll certainly buy this bar again. Would like to try other flavors they offer. Some of the very best chocolate I have ever tasted. I like supporting local business. Just wish it wasn't so expensive, but I guess for such great quality, that's what you have to pay.
