Like a stroll down the  Champs-Élysées on a spring afternoon where everything in sight is a work of art, so is the experience with William Dean Chocolates.

William Dean chocolate assortments contain hand made chocolates made of an assortment of our most popular chocolates. The assortment will include dark, milk and white chocolates chosen from among the collection.

William Dean Chocolates was founded in 2007. The company is named in honor of its founder’s father (William) and grandfather (Dean). William Dean Chocolates follows the artisan tradition of creating everything by hand, in small batches and without preservatives.

Bill Brown, founder and Chief Chocolate Officer at William Dean Chocolates

William Dean Brown, founder and Chief Chocolate Officer (CCO) at William Dean Chocolates, began exploring his artistic talents at an early age. In elementary school, his artistic passion was so great that teachers had to remove all paper from his desk as he would constantly draw.  At one point, he was caught sketching on hand towels from the restroom and sent to the principals office to be reprimanded.  He stopped drawing at this point, and it would be years before he found a new medium.

At William Dean Chocolates, every piece is made by hand in the William Dean shop in Belleair Bluffs, Florida.
