This New Mouthwatering Chocolate Line Is Made By Lebanese Chocolatiers In America

Debbas Gourmet

The Debbas family has been a key player in the US’s chocolate industry for decades, and they continue to lead with a formula of quality and ingenuity.

Since it broke into the industry with its introduction of the chocolate truffle to the US in the ’80s, the family’s chocolate business has exploded in fame to become an industry leader in custom private label confections and new product development.

Recently, Debbas Gourmet launched their new brand, A’cappella Chocolate, that is an ode to the artistic side of the family, as managing partner, new product specialist, and chocolatier Max Debbas puts it.

The new brand introduces a line of hand-crafted wholesale chocolates that combines vibrant packaging with premium ingredients and appealing pricing with the goal of hitting all the right notes with all classes of trade.

“We took the last 40 years of experience and knowledge and wrapped it all up into an orchestra of flavors, incredible ingredients, and eye-catching packaging,” Debbas tells The961.

Launched just a couple of weeks ago, A’cappella Chocolate has seen a great response from distributors and retailers, according to Debbas.

The line includes chocolate barks and caramels with a variety of unique flavors, the likes of Irish Cream Mud Pie, and Mexican Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows.

“For too long chocolate has gone down the path of one-note flavors and flat innovation. We brought the fun and enjoyment back to chocolate, while still keeping our commitment to use only the highest ingredients and award-winning quality,” Debbas says.

Throughout the years, Debbas Gourmet and its team of artisan chocolatiers have received awards and acknowledgments for their distinguished work in the confectionery industry, including ECRM’s Kids Choice Award.

It has also created private label confections for numerous major US companies, such as Whole Foods, Target, and Macy’s, as well as other international companies, while its innovative products, including the highly-praised Liquid Wine Filled Chocolates, are sold in the US and abroad.

It is indeed true, as it continues to show, that Guy was miraculously saved to “sweeten the world” with a legacy that continues with his son Max on board. These Debbas chocolates are mouthwatering!
