Jer's Gourmet Chocolates

(HawaiiNewsNow) - A high quality, but whimsical company that also has a fantastic American entrepreneurial story to it. All-natural peanut butter and chocolate is used as a base for all of the Jer's chocolate confections. In 2001, Jerry Swain left a successful corporate career to turn his well-loved, special recipe for peanut butter and chocolate confections into a business venture. With encouragement from family, friends and chocolate lovers everywhere, Swain has created a niche in the gourmet chocolate industry. In creating irresistibly unique confections, Jer's Chocolates strives to offer an all-natural product made with the highest quality ingredients and is passionate about perfecting its combinations for the absolute best taste.

His product line began with what was affectionately referred to as "Jer's Balls," now "Jer's Gourmet Chocolates." Recently, he launched the "Jer's Squares," which are great treats for afternoon pick me ups and are perfect for a dessert in children's lunches.
