Chocolate Gifts from Kitsap Folks

I’ve mentioned a few places to get local gift-type foods, such as CBC Chocolates in Poulsbo.

But I learned about a new one on a recent post on the he Buy Local Food In Kitsap blog: Aunt Billie’s Chocolates near the Bremerton Airport.

I’ll start making a list of some of the local candy/fod gift makers in the area in case any of you are looking for ideas.

UPDATE: A couple more suggestions from a friend:

Carter’s Chocolates, brand-new place in Port Orchard’s Town Square (formerly the South Kitsap Mall)
Amy’s Decadent Chocolates in West Bremerton

  1. There is also Popcorn Chef, which sells dark chocolate, dark chocolate coconut, dark chocolate/caramel medley, white chocolate crunch, and chocolate peanut truffles.

  2. Popcorn…it is my favorite snack of all time.

    I visited the website and did order one…until I saw the $6.95 shipping/handling charge for the $5.95 container of popcorn.
    Too much shipping to pay for a Silverdale to Silverdale shipment.

    I couldn’t find the size on their ‘Small” or “Large” sized bags. How small is small and how big is big?

    Congratulations to a popcorn store in KC! The first I think.

  3. Thanks for the tips!
    Aunt Billie’s chocolates looked so interesting I ordered a gift.
    Aunt Billie was snowed in and couldn’t deliver before Christmas but hand delivered them on the following Sunday!!!

    The email description of the chocolates I received from the recipients on Monday almost had me drooling….they must be incredibly tasty as well as good looking.

    I’m glad to know of local business and happy to support them wherever I can.

  4. Unfortunately, the cost for Priority Mail in Kitsap is primarily based upon weight, whether from Silverdale to Silverdale, or Silverdale to Bainbridge. A company couldn’t survive if it sold low priced items, then undercut itself by eating the shipping costs. The only way to offset this would be volume orders.

    Anyhow, the Popcorn Chef website does indicate personal delivery is available to some local areas in Kitsap County, in which case shipping charges are refunded to online orders which apply.

    Small bags are 6×10, large 6×15. Volume depends on type of popcorn since the candied versions are heavier than cheese.

  5. What areas in KC are possible for personal delivery?
    SK, CK, NK, BI?
    If the new business does not have a business store, does it have another business affiliation to allow popcorn drop off and customer pickup?
    Thank you.

  6. It isn’t limited to one region. Deliveries have been made to Poulsbo, Silverdale, Bremerton, Port Orchard, Bainbridge.

    Some locations are less likely for delivery, such as Kingston, Hansville or closer to Gig Harbor. Even for these areas it would depend. If it’s a large enough order, perhaps. To deliver one bag of popcorn, again – less likely.

    Popcorn Chef started in 2005, and used to sell its products at Heads Up Brewing in Silverdale, Port Gamble General Store, and Island Health Foods on Bainbridge Island. It almost sold them at Central Markets and Trader Joe’s. Now it’s mail order and some events, such as Viking Fest, Bainbridge 4th, the recent Future Festival, and Quicksilver Hydroplane races.

  7. I hadn’t heard about them before, glad to know about them now. If a person wanted to order for a group function, where can the popcorn be bought in order to sample it first?
