We're Back! The Bootleg Chocolate Crew returns in 2012!

We spent the holidays playing in the snow with our loved ones, and returned to the USS Bootleg refreshed and ready to make you, our loyal customers, delicious treats to easy you into the New Year!

In the New Year, we wanted to expand the art of making our sinfully divine chocolates, so we created a brand new mold - of a 'Champagne Bottle.' So if you are celebrating an anniversary, birth day or any other joy filled day, let us know and we will be happy to provide you with chocolate champagne bottles with your choice of our wonderous fillings.

USS Bootleg Chocolates sails into the New Year with a special message

Dear Chocolate Lover,

Hi, it is Capt' Amanda and I’m the owner of Bootleg Chocolates based here in Venice.

Here at the USS Bootleg we use only the freshest ingredients for all of our delicious chocolates – it’s part of our “Fresher is Better” philosophy.

We make all of our own caramels, chocolates, and even our ganaches from scratch(unlike the pre-made preserved ingredients of other major chocolate brands) and have also managed to keep our prices at a great value level for our customers.

Since everyone and their mother claims to have the best variety and chocolate around I’m asking you to take a chance on us and decide for yourself. I guarantee you that our chocolate quality will make you want more.

Since it is the New Years, we have come out with our special flavor 'Champagne and Wild Hibiscus.' This is the Bootlegger way of kicking off the New Year in style and making sure you got into it with a smile on your face.

Place your order here -

Please take a look at the menu on the site — see which one of our 8 amazing chocolate flavors gets your mouth watering — then give us a call or email to place your order, or come on in and experience our relaxing atmosphere.

To take advantage of our limited time New Years chocolate flavor I mentioned above when you place your order to truly kick off the New Years in style. It’s that simple.

Hope to see you soon!

Capt' Amanda, USS Bootleg Chocolate
