Chocolate Awards

Updated: Sep 18, 2020

As I'm looking into new flavors, chocolate gift basket ideas, and debating if I want to compete in any chocolate competitions in 2020, I realize that I never posted my results from last year.

International Chocolate Salon

Based out of San Francisco, The International Chocolate Salon is one of the premier international bodies celebrating and honoring artisan and premium chocolates and confections.

Judged by regional and national panels of food and media experts. "Best of Salon" Awards are awarded to top artisan, gourmet, and premium chocolates & confections.


Best Chocolate Bar - Design & Art


Best Texture

SILVER- Coco Gusto White Raspberry Bonbon

Best Taste

BRONZE- Coco Gusto White Raspberry Bonbon

"Coco Gusto has some of the most gorgeous chocolate I've ever seen, looking like a polished gemstone."

- Judges Remarks


2019 was a great year for the Coco Gusto Chocolate brand, full of experiments, learning opportunities, mini-milestones, and long hours in the kitchen. Thanks for everyone's support last year, and your current support during the Covid-19 pandemic. I can't wait to see what the rest of this year brings. (feeling optimistic)
