Stafford's Chocolates



As kids, our pockets full of change from our weekly allowance, we’d make a beeline to Stafford’s Famous Chocolates in our small town of Porterville, in California’s San Joaquin Valley. We’d visit with Larry Stafford himself and came to know first-hand the passion he poured into his sweet treats and remarkable shop. 

In 2011, our family realized a dream to carry on the Stafford legacy, and have since been working hard to provide the high quality and attention to craft for which Stafford’s Chocolates is known. We continue to value partnerships with our local growers of nuts, fruits, and dairies, and to deliver our finest for you, our sweet-toothed fans, in person and conveniently online.

We’re growing! We’ve opened our second location in Los Olivos, on the central coast of the Santa Ynez wine country. Come visit. We’ll do our utmost to extend the hospitality Larry Stafford gave us.
