Our passion for creating exquisite confectionary experiences drives Ashby Confections to perfect our products. Through meticulous selection of ingredients to conducting dozens of test batches, we strive to achieve the most perfect pieces of candy. We love what we do. It's that simple.
It is quite simply a travesty to make confections that are anything less than the best, therefore we use single origin Swiss Grand Cru chocolate, fresh cream, real butter and many locally sourced organic fruits, herbs and other elements. Our customers often comment that our confections taste "pure" and "not too sweet" and we know that it is because we use quality, wholesome ingredients.
We do not use preservatives. Consequently we make everything frequently and in small batches and often to order. There is nothing like a chocolate truffle that is but hours old, or a marshmallow that was whipped yesterday. This level of freshness is one of the many things that makes Ashby Confections very special.
Before you ever taste one of our chocolates, you take it in with your eyes, inhale its intoxicating aroma, touch it with your hands. We celebrate the beauty of chocolate with our use of color, artistic technique and precise attention to detail.
Our products are made with our hands, one at a time. Often times we ask "Well, how was it made before industrialization?" We believe that certain qualities are lost when machines take over production and we take great pride in creating a finished artisan product that is beautiful to look at and absolutely delightful to eat.
