Chocolate Life

Mignon Chocolate Mignon Bar Collection

I am a big fan of spicy chocolate. And as you know from these pages, I have tried almost every chocolate available for sale in the Los Angeles area and many from other cities and countries. But one Sunday afternoon, while cruising around Old Towne Pasadena, I stumbled into Mignon Chocolate-established in 1935 (they must be doing something right… I know I think so.) Whenever I visit a chocolatier, I usually choose the one or two pieces that “look” most appealing. But secretly, I’m searching for the spicy chocolate.

At Mignon, I found the Cuban Mojito. How incredible does that sound? Dark Chocolate Shell filled with Cuban Mojito Dark Chocolate Ganache. Wow. They also make the Chili Pepper Chocolate-Dark Chocolate Shell filled with Capsicum Pepper Dark Chocolate Ganache. So delicious.

I used to “force” myself to buy only dark chocolate in an effort to be more healthful until I realized that there is more flavor in dark chocolate. Now, except in rare instances, I ONLY buy dark chocolate. It tastes so much richer!

Mignon also makes a blueberry, a ginger/sea salt, caramelo, bourbon/whiskey, and many more flavors. They also make chocolates bars, they sell/rent chocolate fountains, provide chocolates for the Oscars, etc.

Mignon Flavors

I usually go to a chocolatier’s website to discover their “story” so I can share it with you. Had I know Mignon didn’t publish their story, I would’ve asked them while I was there. So it will remain a mystery. But take it from me, Mignon Chocolate is an adorable, colorful, inviting little store with something (chocolate) for everyone. It’s definitely worth stopping in. Or check them out at www.MignonChocolate.com
