Pasadena Vendor Spotlight: Marco Paolo Chocolates

How did you get your start?
I have always been a chocoholic I became tired of spending a lot of money on chocolates that were supposed to be good, but were disappointing. I have a culinary background, so I decided to try my hand at making chocolate truffles. I learned a lot on my own and then took classes. Then friends starting asking me to make them some and the business grew out of that." 

What or who inspires you?
I become inspired by interesting flavor combinations.

How do you come up with your creations?
I come up with my creations by discovering a flavor I want to develop into chocolate, research what would pair well with it, and then just trial and error.

What can we expect to see from you at Jackalope?
We will have our double-layered chocolate truffles, coconut and maple chocolate brittle barks, and our new Acai mini morsos - tiny truffles in 70% dark chocolate and full of flavor.
