Phillips Chocolates Has Reasons to Celebrate

Boston’s Oldest Chocolatier reaches 90 year milestone and Best-selling chocolate turtles make Oprah’s Favorite Things List 2015

November 5, 2015

Boston’s oldest chocolatier, Phillips Chocolates, is celebrating its 90th Anniversary with exciting news. The family-owned and operated company’s best-selling chocolate turtles have made Oprah’s Favorite Things List 2015. The Signature Chocolate Basket filled with two and a half pounds of milk, dark and white assorted turtles - pecan, cashew and almond and the five-pound Giant Chocolate Basket filled with 15 pounds of assorted turtles, have both been hand selected and endorsed by Oprah.

In addition, in honor of its 90th Anniversary, Phillips has introduced two new chocolate selections; the Sweet Memories Assortment, a nod to Phillips long history, and a mouthwatering collection of fresh baked Chocolate Brownies, a product line extension that looks toward the future.  

Hearkening back to the early days, before online shopping, customers flocked to Phillips flagship Boston store for the timeless chocolate favorites featured in the Sweet Memories Assortment. Today, the debut of Phillips Chocolate Brownie Collection exemplifies the company’s commitment to introducing new ways to enjoy their artisan chocolate. Brownies are made with rich cocoa powder and creamy butter and baked to moist chewy perfection.

“Our handcrafted chocolates have been loved by generations for 90 years, and many of our recipes have remained the same since my grandfather taste-tested them in his basement in the 1920’s,” says General Manager Mary Ann Nagle, great granddaughter of company founders.

According to Nagle, the Sweet Memories Assortment features all time best sellers and perennial favorites, while the new Chocolate Brownie Collection offers a new dimension of chocolate indulgence that embraces tradition while also stretches the boundaries of just how delectable chocolate can be in its many forms.

The Sweet Memories Assortment $25.00 per 1 lb. (18 pieces) of the following handmade confections:

  • Phillips Signature Chocolate Turtle
  • Peanut Butter Cup
  • Sea Salt Caramel
  • Almond Buttercrunch
  • Figaro
