Hedonist Artisan Chocolates was RocWiki's Business of the Month for February 2012!

Hedonist Artisan Chocolates is a chocolatier operating on South Avenue in the South Wedge. The company's website claims they "hand crafts Hedonist truffles and chocolate treats with French chocolate and fresh, natural ingredients. Each piece of Hedonist chocolate is rolled, cut, dipped and decorated by human hands in small batches." You can purchase chocolate at their retail shop or order online. You can buy a more limited selection from their [WWW]local retail outlets.

Hedonist Artisan Chocolates is owned by partners Jennifer Posey and ZahraLangford.

On June 1, 2012, they opened an ice cream shop next door called Hedonist Artisan Ice Cream. They also started Little Button Craft & Press in 2015 but sold it to a new owner in 2016.

The storefront is tucked away in an alley near Lux and the alley is adorned with white xmas lights. Very cute. I gave a few boxes of chocolate to family/friends for xmas, and they were all extremely impressed with the unique and tasty flavors(eggnog, pomegranate, ginger, etc). You can also design your own box and choose which truffles you'd like to be included. Highly recommended!! —TrishHeckmann

2010-10-05 11:00:54   In general I prefer to eat dark plain single origin cacao chocolate bars, but for Hedonist Chocolates, I definitely make an exception. They have hand crafted chocolates and truffles in many interesting and unique flavors. I take out of town visitors there as part of the "Rochester tour" and when I travel to visit friends and relatives, I usually take gift boxes from Hedonist Chocolates. —KairakuShugisha

The staff was great at making suggestions and I walked out with a ton of chocolate—all received great reviews from my family. I especially recommend anything that pairs chocolate with big crystals of salt. —elizabethyockel
