Black Mountain Chocolate makes the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies in North Carolina! and Yelp report local business is the best

"In an online article dated August 18, 2016, Cosmopolitan columnist Helin Jung explained the process used in determining the winners: partnered with Yelp to pick the standout chocolate chip cookies in every state.  The Yelp data team looked at the number of reviews plus the star rating for every business on Yelp, along with reviews and photos of chocolate chip cookies to determine who had the best cookies.”

Yelp reviewers were quoted in the article: 
Chris W.: “The best chocolate chip cookies in town…”
Meghan R.: “Did I mention their chocolate chip cookies are heavenly… Every bite oozes with their very own dark chocolate.” 

Our "Chocolate Chunk Cookies" are loaded with both our Dominican 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate and our Mountain Milk 53% Dark Milk Chocolate.  They are sold only at the factory at 732 N Trade Street and at Cobblestone Farmers Market in Old Salem on Saturday mornings.  To ensure freshness, we bake them in small batches, so customers wanting more than a few should contact the store to place a special order. Orders placed in the morning are usually ready by the afternoon.  We are experimenting with shipping the cookies to see if we can add them to our online store.

Background information:  

Black Mountain Chocolate started in Black Mountain, NC in 2008 and moved operations to Winston-Salem in 2014.  We were the FIRST company in North Carolina and one of the first TEN chocolatiers to make bean-to-bar chocolate.

We use organic, fair trade certified Criollo (cree-O-yo) beans from a single source in the Dominican Republic.  Only about 5% of the world’s chocolate is made with Criollo beans.  (Criollo beans are to chocolate what fine Arabica beans are to coffee.)

Our recognitions include: 
The International Chocolate Salon and Taste TV awarded us "Four Stars, Superior Chocolatier" status in their 2016 ratings of Best Chocolatiers and Confectioners in America, Artisan Chocolate Awards.  

Our Mountain Milk Dark Milk Chocolate won a Good Food Award 2015.  

We are a visible factory so our guests can watch production through the windows or take a behind the scenes tour.  So that you can see us in action, here is a link to a short video that aired on UNCTV's program, NC Weekend:"
